1,900 Christmas Gift Boxes

1,900 completed OGT Christmas Gift boxes were packed into 400 OGT shipping boxes and loaded on a truck for the Norfolk warehouse. We had lots of young, energetic helpers having fun serving our Lord and giving to children in need. Hats off to Kelly Asbury with Grace Lutheran Church in Norfolk, NE for heading up this project again. Her goal this year was to complete 1,500 boxes but with the outpour of help from donors all over the U.S. and volunteers that number was exceeded. ‘Thank You’ Kelly and everyone involved with sharing the Christmas story with children that otherwise may not hear about the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Savior and receive presents here in the U.S. and other countries. Praise be to God!
