The Need for Help with Food Continues at a High Rate

On August 11, 2020, Dean Sprehe (second from right) and Dennis Windler delivered 25 large boxes of fresh quality corn to OGT’s Missouri-Illinois Division for distribution to the hungry via pantries with Lutheran connections in the greater St. Louis area where food needs continue at a high rate, especially for those affected by the Pandemic. Receiving the items for OGT was Keith Scherer (at left). An acre was set aside to raise vegetables and corn for charitable distribution. This corn was planted, raised, and harvested as an annual project of St. John Lutheran Church in Nashville, Illinois, which has progressed for more than a decade. This is an expression of the need to not only provide for the needy but to “plow and harvest” for the Lord.
