Construction Materials Shipped to Texas

Construction Materials Shipped to Texas

Two loads of construction materials consisting of insulation, wall board, joint tape, screws, and plates were purchased by OGT Disaster Relief Fund and shipped to Tomball, TX. Salem Lutheran Church received the items to distribute to volunteers helping with the reconstruction of homes damaged by hurricane Harvey. They also received two of the six shipments of drywall OGT purchased and shipped to Texas. Salem Lutheran Church has opened their doors to volunteers; housing and feeding them while they help to repair homes. When the volunteers are asked by families “why are you doing this?” they tell them “for the love of Jesus.” The non-believers are amazed and confused by the generosity and a seed is planted. Salem Lutheran Church works with 41 other churches by distributing donated construction materials to help rebuild the Houston area. Thank you to our donors for helping our neighbors down south. Pictures include the warehouse in Texas receiving one of OGT’s drywall shipments, pallets of insulation already delivered and a grateful gentleman picking up some of the construction materials.
