The Church of God is one of many denominations in Puerto Rico that has a growing burden for world missions. Although at one point the missionary zeal in the country seemed to diminish, in the past six to eight years there has been a renewed interest in world missions and church teams are increasingly traveling to other countries to do evangelism and construction work. Due to the freedom of worship, the economic prosperity and the language advantage, Puerto Rico has been especially active and mission-minded toward Latin America. (Faith News Network)
