Missouri Synod Leaders Take Part in World Refugee Day Hill Visits

Published On: Donate

We’re excited that the official newspaper of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS), the Reporter, this week provided readers with an excellent top story on World Refugee Day visits to Capitol Hill.

Missouri Synod leaders were part of a 15-person delegation organized by LIRS that visited with members of Congress and others in Washington, D.C. on June 20 to support U.S. refugee resettlement.

The delegation, whose members visited a total of 38 congressional offices, also included former refugees from Afghanistan, South Sudan, Liberia, Vietnam and Iraq. These delegates are now leaders in their own communities in the United States.

LCMS representatives in the group were LCMS New Jersey District President Emeritus Rev. William Klettke; his wife, Val; and LCMS Office of National Mission Executive Director Rev. Bart Day, whose office works with LCMS congregations and districts in a number of areas, including immigration and refugee matters.
