Local School Helps Pack 150 Boxes

Lutheran South Academy, Houston has focused their school year theme based on 1 Peter 4:10 ‘Gifted to Serve.’ Over 80 teachers and staff members joined OGT (prior to school starting when they had a lot of energy!) on a hot, humid, Texas day to sort and pack 150 boxes of clothes in just over an hour followed by a human ‘box brigade’ to load them into the container! OGT was blessed by their team work and joy in service to our Lord.
