Giving Tuesday Goal Exceeded

THANK YOU everyone that gave and prayed for our ministry on Giving Tuesday! We exceeded our goal and was able to purchase tents, tarps and also mattresses for children and families living in tent cities because of the devastating earthquakes in the Philippines. Hanna Freudenburg; one of OGT’s International Shipping Assistants has been working on this in hopes that our generous and dedicated donors would get this done. Because of you, our OGT supporters, everything loaded and shipped on Thursday, December 5, 2019! May God bless you all and may we continue to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This shipment also included Mercy Meals, quilts, clothes, toys, bikes and sleeping mats to give aid to children and families. Praise be to God. We are planning another shipment before the end of January and are grateful to get this needed load of blessings out now! Again, Thank You!
