Sad News

OGT received some very sad news January 17th. One of our Haitian recipients, Leonard Isidor was shot and killed on the afternoon of the 17th. Leonard visited OGT home office in 2015 with Dick Buethe of Haiti Lutheran Mission Society. He gave to others freely what was given to him and often sang hymns of praise while doing so. He had a church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Zion, built beside his home and after services he would distribute baggies of beans or rice to those in need. He sent OGT pictures and videos of distributing OGT donated food and supplies to those in need. He was given an OGT polo shirt and wore that in most all of the distribution pictures. Please remember Leonard, his family and congregation in your prayers. He will be missed.(1/2017)
