Relief Efforts Continued in Texas

OGT’s international office funded two shipments for hurricane victims in Texas. The first shipment was the purchase of several metal bed frames, and twin and queen mattresses from Gallery Furniture in Houston. These frames and mattresses will be going to families that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. OGT found out that some families were sleeping on floors or mats after getting back into their repaired homes. We pray they are able to get some needed rest. OGT funded a 7th load from Lowe’s Home Store of 880 sheets of drywall with drywall supplies for rebuilding homes. Both of the shipments went to Salem Lutheran Church for distribution in the Tomball, TX area. Thank you donors for your continued support of OGT’s Hurricane Relief fund.
