A Well Spent Spring Break

by Gerald Perschbacher, LLD.

Preparation of a shipment from the Orphan Grain Train branch in St. Louis, Missouri, to Latvia, received a boost in mid-March, thanks to a motivated bunch of youth who spent Spring Break in mission work.  Volunteers came from the Wichita, Kansas, area and were organized by three adult leaders under the auspices of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Wichita.

St. Louis branch officials worked in coordination with Branch Manager Brad Jackson to involve youth in sorting clothing for distribution plus cleaning and checking walkers, canes, and crutches for the feeble. Some even prepared items for local distribution to the needy via church pantries.

Captioned pictures explain the work.  A giant forward step was the result as the branch reached the final stage of preparation for the shipment.

To summarize the achievements and direct praise to the One from Whom all Grace is given, the group of travelers paused to lift heads, hearts, and hands to the Lord.
