Bake sale raises money to help tornado victims


This spring, Marie Ortiz and Alicia Longoria had an idea. One to reach out and help purchase netting for kids in other countries to help keep them safe from Malaria.
“It was something we learned more about during Lutheran Schools Week and we wanted to do more,” says Maria.
From this idea grew plans to have a summer bake sale to raise funds to donate to the cause.  Alicia and Maria recruited a few other classmates from Immanuel Lutheran School to be a part of this Mission Team, including  Marie Ortiz, Alicia Longoria, Caroline Adams, Ian Anderson and Graci McGinnis.  Siblings Miklo Ortiz and Lilly Longoria played a huge part at the bake sale.
But, once you lift your intentions up to God, He has a beautiful way of making them His own.  A month ago, terrible weather struck Oklahoma City and from all of the damage and pain that Marie heard about on the news, her heart was changed.
