Mobile Chapel Being Built

Due to a generous donation from The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, Orphan Grain Train is in the process of building a mobile chapel that will provide for a place of worship for the members of St. John’s Lutheran Church, in Pilger, Nebraska. We are both pleased and proud to be able to provide a place of worship for the members of St. John’s, as they continue to recover from the June tornado that destroyed their church building. Through generous donations, Orphan Grain Train has been able to provide aid to many families in Pilger as well as to families in northeast Nebraska. We are saddened by the damage that was done by this tornado and the hardships that so many have had to deal with. Our prayer at OGT is that this chapel will allow the members of St. John’s and the community of Pilger, to gather and worship together as they continue to rebuild.
