Lutheran World Relief Ingathering

In 2019, your gifts of love reached out to people all over the world. You provided opportunities for education for children from Honduras to Zimbabwe to Syria; gave hope to refugees in Mauritania, Bosnia, and Iraq; and comfort to displaced families in Haiti and Dominica.
