NORFOLK, Neb. -- Orphan Grain Train held a groundbreaking on Thursday for its new servant center.

The multi-million dollar project has been in the works for five years according to Reverend Ray Wilke.

Wilke said that funding for the center was does through donation but it did not interfere with funds used to help serve the community.

"All this money came as a result of private donations, none of the money that was used for sending food and sustenance for the world was used for this building," said Wilke. "It's all separate donations."

Combined with the other orphan grain train facilities in the area its total space round to about 30,000 square feet being able to fit 300 people at a time.

Wilke said that its been a tiresome making it to the groundbreaking but seeing the support of others is great.

"I'm always amazed at how much people are willing to do for nothing," said Wilke.

Wilke said construction is expected to be complete by this time next year.
