where love comes to life
More than 270 Lutherans and friends have walked or run up to 26km in the inaugural Sunshine Coast Walk My Way in Queensland to help support almost 2200 refugee children to go to school.

Members of our LCA/NZ family are rushing to be part of the ALWS Walk My Way event which raises money to help refugee children in camps in Kenya to go to school. And it’s not too late to get involved.
