God is Good! In 2017 OGT was able to ship 15 containers filled with humanitarian aid to Haiti. Eight of these shipments were blessed to contain a total of 832,896 processed rice meals, 43,975 pounds of edible beans and other goods. That is a lot of hungry children and families fed along with praises of thanks to God. The food and goods were distributed to several ministries including Help For Haiti, Helping Hands for Haiti, Mission Haiti, La Gonave Alive, Ecole Univers Des Tout Petits, Haiti Lutheran Mission Society (2 locations), and House of Hope orphanage. OGT is grateful for our dedicated supporters and volunteers that help spread the Word and love of Jesus to the hungry and needy. This thank you was emailed to Karen Mangels, OGT’s Director of International Transportation:
This is to thank you for the food sent on behalf of God’s people down here. This is very much appreciated. In the names of all the beneficiaries and in my own, I thank you so much for all you do. I take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year.
