Summer 2015 Snapshot - Lutheran Youth Serve Omaha

The Lutheran Youth Serve Omaha (LYSO) event was incredible! We took 12 people from the ages of 7 to 16 to do mission work in our own city. It was a great experience for the students to see to kind of mission work that is needed right here in Omaha. Most of the students there didn’t realize that poverty is real and you don’t have to go very far to find it. The students got to go to a new work site each day. We did everything from laying mulch, sorting food and clothes for refugees, and painting people’s apartments. It really showed the importance of giving back to our community and most importantly showing the love of Christ to our neighbors.
