'Tireless' Lutheran efforts

Lutheran World Federation General Secretary Martin Junge thanked LWF member churches, including the ELCA, for their "tireless effort" in responding to people affected by drought, violence and hunger. With support from global Lutheran churches, about 5,000 LWF World Service staff provide assistance to 1.5 million refugees and internally displaced people, regardless of race, gender, creed, nationality or political conviction, he said. These humanitarian efforts are an "expression of [member churches'] faith and therefore an integral part of their mission," he added.
