Pacific Southwest District ZONE 25
Christ Lutheran LWML, has fun putting these little "Bundles of Joy" together for new mothers, and they deliver them to the local pregnancy center and the medical centers in Yuma, AZ. These new "moms" have very little or nothing at all for their new baby.
One couple that was traveling through Yuma, had their twins come early. They were not prepared for the early delivery. Through tears, they spoke with JOY of how someone who they did not know would be so kind and loving." They were SO thankful when given TWO Bundles of Joy. They now had an outfit to put on each of their babies and other necessities to care for them, as they continued their travel.
Bundle of Joy: newborn diapers, baby products, toy, NB outfit, hat, socks, Bible, Mustard Seeds: Love, Laughter and Lullabies for New Mothers, and baby blanket.
Paint the Planet Purple – What does this mean?
The official colors of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League are purple and gold. Purple, symbolizes royalty, and gold symbolizes value and integrity. The vision of the LWML is to recognize that each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God given gifts as she supports global mission and serves the Lord with gladness. When you use your gifts to serve God, “Jesus’ love in action,” you are spreading the word of Christ around the world. You are painting the planet purple! We would like you to share with us where, what, when, and how you have shared “Jesus’ love in action.” The Gospel Outreach Committee would love to hear about and share your mission servant activities! Please contact us through the LWML email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
