At the 2018 M3 Conference, Yancy Stermer, a surgical technologist who serves globally with Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), spoke about his experience serving in Mosul.

The battle to re-take the city of Mosul from ISIS control was expected to be protracted and grueling with enormous consequences for the surrounding population.  In response to the growing humanitarian crisis, Samaritan’s Purse deployed its Emergency Field Hospital (EFH) to provide emergency trauma care for all in need.  In stark contrast to the surroundings, the EFH was filled with peace, love, compassion and hope.

In this session, Yancy gives us a glimpse inside the protective blast walls at the mission and the people who made it happen while reminding us that it is indeed a privilege to serve those who God has placed before us.
