Being an ERT is hard work. You get dirty and sweaty. You go into places that are a mess. And it is incredibly meaningful work to see hope restored as survivors feel they can now take the next steps forward. Is God calling you to serve in this way?

ERTs Requested by FEMA

The island of Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands is in need of volunteers to perform repairs to more than 500 houses damaged by Super typhoon YUTU in October 2018. The need is so great that FEMA will fund transportation and housing for qualified volunteers.
