Beginning in August of 2015 Aliyah Richling,a member here at First Lutheran, will join 75 other YAGMs (Young Adults in Global Mission) as they are sent off to various locations around the globe for their year of mission work. Aliyah will be making her new home in Békéscsaba, Hungary, and will be working in parish/music ministry and ministering to the Roma people.
With a total cost of approx. $11,000, Aliyah has made a commitment to raise $4,000 herself and the ELCA seeks sponsors for the remaining $7,000. Please consider supporting Aliyah on her yearlong journey:

We will miss her singing during worship, and lift up prayers for her travels and her ministry in Hungary! Watch for updates from Aliyah during her time in Hungary!
