Mobile Chapel’s Outside Completed

The Mobile Chapel that is being built at the OGT Norfolk Office is about finished on the outside. The roof is on and it has been painted. This Mobile Chapel is being built by Orphan Grain Train and is being funded by a grant from Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. The Chapel will be placed in Pilger, NE for Pastor Terry Makelin to use as his temporary church until St. John’s Lutheran Church is rebuilt. The church building was destroyed by a tornado in June.
