Norfolk International Office has visitor from New Guinea

Orphan Grain Train was blessed to have Julie Lutz, LCMS Mission Service Coordinator, from New Guinea visit yesterday. She shared the story and photos of the receipt of the second container of school books that was shipped from Norfolk to Papua, New Guinea. The shipments of books were funded with special donations from the Arnie Otten family and teamwork with Mission Central, LCMS, and Orphan Grain Train. The books left Norfolk in January of 2012; arrived at Enga in Papua; New Guinea in March of 2013; were sorted and distributed among the 27 primary and secondary schools in January of 2014; with the books put to use when their school year began in February of 2014. To God be the Glory. Pictured is Julie Lutz
