Brethren Disaster Ministries Updates

Teams of volunteers from the Shenandoah District will be making at least 11 trips to Brethren Disaster Ministries project sites in 2018, helping rebuild communities damaged by hurricanes, floods and fires. Confirmed projects are in South Carolina and Missouri; other sites may be added during the year. All expenses are paid for the volunteer crew members, and transportation is provided. The teams generally leave on Sundays, put in a week's work and return home on Saturdays.
