Gifts in Texas

In mid-December, Hurricane Ike survivors received gifts at First Lutheran Church, Galveston, Texas­.

The bulk of the Christmas trees, decorations, games, dolls, blankets, winter coats, canned food and gift cards came from Immanuel Lutheran Church, Killeen, Texas.

Lucy Thomas, Lord of Life Lutheran Church, Ames, Iowa, refurbished and delivered more than a dozen bicycles.

First member Sandra Stewart said one man told her, “If you had not done this, there would not be Christmas for my kids.”
