JUNE 2021

The Board of Global Outreach met with Ashley Lehr on May 17 to receive an update on her mission work in Puerto Rico. We enjoyed getting acquainted with Ashley and she answered our many questions. Ashley is preparing to return to Puerto Rico in July; pray for a smooth transition and bless her work for the Lord there! In Puerto Rico, Ashley connects, equips and organizes local and international volunteers for service to Christ both on and off the island. She also works to assist local communities by connecting them to fellowship, education and mercy activities and events. Support for Ashley can be sent through LCMS or Mission Central, Project #A10898-69467, 40718 Highway E16, Mapleton, IA 51034-7105
