Goal of Packing 500 Christmas Boxes Joyfully Completed

Rocky Mountain Branch at Julesburg, CO recently purchased the gifts needed to complete and pack 500 Christmas Gift boxes. Through this effort we were able to accomplish our goal of exposing more individuals to the mission work of OGT by inviting volunteers from our neighboring communities and churches to help us pack these boxes and also by gifting needy children. Some of the boxes will be loaded onto our upcoming Lithuania shipment. Volunteers came from a radius of sixty miles and included the Colorado communities of Sterling, Haxtun, Holyoke, Julesburg, Amherst and the Nebraska communities of Grant, Venango, and Ogallala. We had two 3-hour packing times, and had ten to twelve workers each session. Our goal and mission were joyfully completed.
