Immanuel Lutheran Church brings LERT training to Stateline area
(September 14, 2017 – WTVO 17 ABC/Elliot Wilson)
There are many volunteers and organizations that have gone down to Texas and Florida to bring relief for hurricane victims, but none of these organizations are anything like the church group that's involved in our area.
The Lutheran Early Response Team, otherwise known as LERT, is an organization which consists of skilled workers trained in disaster relief. Robert Schwarzkopf, Assistant Team Leader of LERT at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Belvidere said, "It was set up to be the hands and feet and mouth and ears of Jesus."
