Shower Unit Delivered For Volunteers Helping with Flood Relief in Fremont

OGT is assisting Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Fremont, NE to aid the residents that were devastated by recent flood waters. On March 15, the flood waters reached Fremont and closed off roads going in and out of town along with engulfing a large portion of Fremont, destroying and damaging hundreds of homes. The clean-up and restoration process will take years. Good Shepherd is coordinating the volunteers and has a location for volunteers to reside at. OGT has set up a shower unit and delivered 40 beds with mattresses. We also set up a 40 ft. container filled with cleaning supplies and tools for volunteers to use. The devastation is overwhelming, especially for families with no flood insurance. Please continue to pray for families and volunteers assisting with restoration of homes and lives.
