Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and Justice (LIRS)
Who is Linda Hartke

Our Mission offering for the month of June is LIRS
In 1939, Lutherans all across the United States banded together to reach out to assist Lutheran refugees fleeing Nazi Germany. Creating Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) to organize their efforts, they welcomed these new Americans and walked with them as they began their new lives in the United States.

Seventy six years later, LIRS has directly resettled over 500,000 migrants and refugees in the U.S., extending the love and hospitality of this great nation.
