LWML eNews Issue #162 – July 25, 2015
Have you ever considered a position on one of the national LWML committees? These committees will be chosen as the Executive Committee meets in St. Louis, August 11-16. Personnel Forms will be used as a resource as the members of the EC pray and ask for God's guidance. Complete the form and send in as soon as possible. The form is found on the LWML website.
The LWML ladies contributed over 6,200 Arch books at the LWML Convention in Des Moines. Orphan Grain (OGT) filled the available space in their tractor trailer with thousands of the books headed along with many other donated items for distribution. Many more of the books were then shared with the local OGT group. The remainder of the books will be going to Concordia Gospel Outreach, a ministry of Concordia Publishing House (CPH), that equips mission teams, missionaries, and individuals with Bible-based literature and educational materials so they may spread the Gospel throughout the world. What a great partnership between Lutheran Women in Mission, OGT, and CPH!
Have you ever wondered how you could talk with a missionary?
Women at the Des Moines Convention had fun connecting on Skype with a few of our LCMS Missionaries and learning about sending care packages to them. Using the LWML Gospel Outreach Missionary Care Package and Guidelines for Skype pamphlets, you too can select a missionary and then support and pray for the specific needs of that missionary. Discover the joy of partnering with a missionary!
Download these easily reproduced masters to share at your group gatherings or in your church lobby.
