The Orphan Grain Train’s mobile worship chapel is on its way to Redemption Lutheran Church in Panama City from Norfolk, Nebraska. The church was badly damaged from Hurricane Michael’s strong winds and flood waters, and the chapel will give a place for the congregation to join together for prayer and to gain strength.
The OGT chapel, built in 2014 for St. John’s Lutheran Church in Pilger, Nebraska, after an EF4 tornado hit the town, helps people in communities that have been devastated by natural disasters.
Orphan Grain Train is a Christian volunteer network that ships donated food, clothing, medical and other needed items to people in 68 different countries, including the USA, according to its website http://www.ogt.org/.
In addition to international efforts, the United States is a key part of Orphan Grain Train’s mission. In the years since Hurricane Katrina, more than 150 semi loads of supplies have been shipped to the Gulf Coast to support the recovery efforts.
