How our church and community contributes…

In 2015 Holy Lutheran Church and several other local churches in our community have worked together

to create a warehouse space right here in TERRYVILLE,

to collect and organize donated goods for shipping all over the world.

How can you contribute?  Email-  htlc08@sbcglobal.net  

 

We also have a local Loaner program, if you need hospital type supplies

(beds, walkers, commodes) 

Please reach out to us if you have a need.

Mission Statement

In loving response to Christ, the Servant, the Orphan Grain Train movement encourages and enables God’s people to share personal and material resources in bringing Christ’s name and character to needy people both far and near.

Sometimes that character expresses itself as a word well spoken, sometimes as a bandage well applied, and sometimes as a child well fed.

What is Orphan Grain Train?

Orphan Grain Train is a Christian volunteer network that shares personal and material resources with needy people in America and around the world. Grain Train volunteers gather donations of clothing, medical supplies, food, Christian literature, and other aid to meet real needs. The Orphan Grain Train movement is a loving response to Jesus Christ’s example as a servant and His love for us.

Present Day

Since 1992, Orphan Grain Train’s 18 regional branches have delivered more than 63 million pounds of humanitarian aid to needy people in more than 60 countries on five continents. An additional 330 semi loads of hay and forage products were delivered in 2002-03 to drought-stricken farmers in the Midwest during Operation Hay and Grain Lift.
