2015 LYSO (Lutheran Youth Serve Omaha)

It has been a fun and busy week at Lutheran Youth Serve Omaha (LYSO)! The camp is hosted by Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church in downtown Omaha. Each day is filled with worship, fellowship, songs, games and a different service project around the downtown Omaha area. I volunteered to serve with the younger children. Some of our service projects have included picking up trash at local parks, preparing bags for the Food Pantry, spreading mulch, sorting clothes, playing games with residents of a retirement home, and much more. Each age group has a different service project every day. Today, all of the age groups served together and planted trees at two large parks.

I am honored to have this opportunity, and feel blessed to be sharing this experience with my children. Thank you for your support in this mission. We will definitely volunteer again next year for this annual event. We would love to have even more Bethany friends join us!
