Dear Friend,

It’s always a great encouragement to see so many people who are struggling to find new hope and opportunity through the work of LIRS.

The road for refugees is long and the journey is difficult, but we are continuing to see thousands find new homes in the U.S. thanks to your support and the hard work of people like Helen and her team. It can be heartbreaking for our staff as they see the conditions many refugees live in, but they also experience real joy and satisfaction when they’re able to find those same people a safe place to call home.

This critical work is only possible because of you. Whether you give as you can or whether you’ve decided to become a Hope Builder and give monthly, we cannot overstate just how important your support is. It brings hope to people who have experienced some of the most terrible suffering a person can endure.

We trust you will be able to join us on June 20 as we celebrate World Refugee Day. I urge you to get with your church, small group, or friends and make this day a priority. It is a reminder not just for us, but also for the wider community of the need to recognize the walk of those who have very little and who are looking to us for hope and a new beginning.

Thank you so much for your continued support of LIRS and for your faithful commitment to the precious lives we serve. It’s the partnership of friends like you that makes this work possible!

Yours in faith,

Linda Hartke
