John and Ruth Lange's support for Lutheran World Relief has often spilled well beyond their church's front door and into their living room, with cartons, bags, towels and more goods collected for kits stacked high.
Yet it's a gift they will never see that may make the longest-lasting difference.
"LWR is going to be around and the need is still going to be there," John said about the decision to leave a legacy gift to Lutheran World Relief. "I know they will keep finding new ways of helping."
The couple retired from federal service and re-located from Northern Virginia to Georgia to be closer to their grandchildren. All the while they kept up their support for Lutheran World Relief.
"It seems like you don't ever really miss the money," Ruth said. "Every year there's plenty for us to have a very nice life, why not share?"
