3 Shipments In One Weeks Time

Our 3 – in – 1 hit!
In April, the Maryland Branch had a “first”- 3 shipments sent out in the course of a week! This is our most ever in such a short time span. Our first shipment was trucked down to North Carolina and contained disaster supplies, taken to a poor area still in the initial recovery stage. The second went to Liberia and contained school supplies and furniture for 14 Lutheran schools in the rural areas. Also on that shipment were 1,776 Luci Lights, providing safe, clean solar light for people who have absolutely no electrical grid. Our third shipment is headed for Nicaragua with needed hospital equipment and clothing. Praise the Lord and thanks to the wonderful volunteers who have helped to make this possible. You can view the latest video on these shipments on the Maryland webpage at ogt.org.
