MULTI-USE BUILDING GOING UP FOR LL

Construction of the new multi-use building began on August 29, 2017 and is moving full speed ahead.  The construction crew from Schwisow Construction has worked around the wet weather and is working hard to complete the project by the end of December 2017.  The multi-use building is possible because of the generous support of 275 individuals, foundations and companies through the Now Through Eternity campaign.

OGT HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF EFFORTS

On September 20th our truck went to Hosanna Church in Houston, Texas with sheetrock, insulation and other building materials. We also hauled 650 lbs. of rice, plastic sleeping mats, clothing and blankets, school supplies, hygiene supplies, mops, brooms, buckets, and other cleaning supplies.  Hosanna Church was not damaged by the Hurricane Harvey floods: however, areas near the church where many members live were flooded. Arnie Otten and Dick Troester drove the truck to Houston. The Central Nebraska Branch continues to collect relief supplies which will be delivered when the Norfolk office sets up volunteer villages in October. Thank you so much for your donations, time, and prayers that help make these deliveries happen.
