LWML South Dakota District Mission Trips
April 2, 2022
The LWML South Dakota District sponsored a mission day at Orphan Grain Train’s South Dakota Collection Center in Milbank April 2, 2022. About 80 volunteers had a very fun day as they worked together to pack 21,600 Mercy Meals! Other projects included making diapers out of t-shirts, making mission bracelets, cutting plastic bags to make into mats, sorting clothes, cutting and tying fleece blankets, and sewing buttons onto shirts.
The LWML ladies at Emanuel Lutheran Church welcomed the volunteers with muffins and coffee in the morning. A video about Orphan Grain Train (OGT) helped everyone learn about its mission. The church also sponsored a noon meal so people could rest and have time for fellowship. It was a wonderful opportunity for working for the Lord. LWML SD is thankful for the volunteers at OGT and at Emanuel Lutheran Church.
May 31–June 1, 2019
A short Mission Trip to the Orphan Grain Train Warehouse in Norfolk, NE was held May 31–June 1, 2019. A tour of the facility was enjoyed by all prior to sorting and boxing items including bedding, clothing, shoes, school supplies, etc.
