All else that was required of them was permissible age (16), good health, current tetanus shot and the making – and keeping – of a covenant for success, which read:
“We are privileged to serve our great God as volunteers in this mission. As volunteers, our primary mission is to demonstrate God’s love by freely giving of ourselves, our time, and, our resources. We prayerfully invest ourselves in this mission, and endeavor to honor God in all we do by serving those in need.
“We will strive to be patient, understanding, tolerant and flexible in working with disaster victims and each other. We will make the best of our time together, demonstrate mutual respect and enjoy fellowship with one another. We will serve with a ‘servant’s heart’ and rejoice in the blessing of doing God’s will.”
