In 2011, God planted an idea and in no time, Blessings by the Bushel was formed. The children served by NLOM are reaping the benefits of farmers’ gifts of grain. This generous sharing of corn, wheat, and soybeans has produced an amazing harvest by helping more young people have the opportunity to attend camp. Blessings by the Bushel is connecting NLOM with Nebraska’s agricultural community in an amazing way. We invite you to join us by making a life-changing gift!

We find the Blessings by the Bushel program to be an easy way to give to camp that benefits so many youth. It’s so easy to drop off bushels in the NLOM account at the elevator and in turn, hear stories of the young people whose lives are being changed as campers. We get so much joy out of hearing that these same campers come back as college students to serve as Summer Ministry Team members and, for some, find themselves called into ministry for life as pastors. It’s a big win when you see what a few bushels can do.
