LWML eNews Issue #167 – September 28, 2015
President Patti Ross visited with Andy Bates, host of the KFUO morning program "His Time" on Tuesday, September 22, 2015.
President Ross shared information on the LWML, the 75th anniversary celebration at the 2017 LWML Convention in
Salt Lake City, Utah Albuquerque, New Mexico (updated March 2016), and how Christ's love reaches around the world through LWML Mission Grants.
The interview is archived on the LWML website.
All the 2015-2017 mission grants are listed on the front of an attractive NEW bookmark. If you are a smartphone user, keep it handy because below the list of grants a QR code links you immediately to the mission grant page on the LWML website. There you can access more resources and find details about each mission grant.
On the back of the bookmark, a prayer will help focus your prayerful mite support. Below the prayer a QR code takes you to the donate-online page. Use this convenient link to keep your mite support mobile or to help you share the mission of the LWML with a friend.
In 2017, LWML will celebrate 75 years of serving the Lord with gladness. President Patti Ross intends this to be such a unique observance, that a special committee was appointed and will meet in St. Louis in November to create and outline plans for the year.
The committee members are:
Edie Norris, chairman; past LWML Presidents Betty Duda, Ida Mall, Gloria Edwards, Virginia Von Seggern, Linda Reiser, Janice Wendorf, Kay Kreklau; Kristy Carter; Amy Gill; Carolyn Blum; Caroline Honeycutt, Archivist-Historian; Rev. Robert Mundahl, Pastoral Counselor; and LWML President Patti Ross.
