The Lutheran Church Concordia of Kyrgyzstan (LCC) recently distributed humanitarian aid from the Orphan Grain Train in the village of Iskra, Kyrgyzstan, which is about 100 kilometers from the capital city of Bishkek. In Iskra, the LCC has a house church with six confirmed members and six new Lutherans. Many people have left the village since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Following the collapse, a large poultry farm closed and left many people in the village unemployed. It is a great joy for the members of the house church and other inhabitants of the village when the LCC is able to distribute humanitarian aid from Orphan Grain Train. Many times, the LCC holds a prayer or worship service in conjunction with the Orphan Grain Train aid. Since 1999, the LCC has received 108 containers from Orphan Grain Train.
