Dear Lucy Leader … Connecting with a Deaf Woman

Dear Lucy Leader,

Recently a woman who cannot hear became a member of our congregation. I would like to reach out to her and let her know that our LWML cares about her. We would like to involve her in LWML, but we don’t know how. Can you help with this?

Dear Caring Carol,

It is so wonderful that you want to reach out to a deaf woman in your congregation. LWML has compiled resources to help you to welcome her into fellowship and service with Lutheran Women in Mission. You can find these resources at Deaf Ministry at

Kaye Wolff is currently the LWML Deaf Ministry Liaison. From her experience, Kaye writes, “The deaf culture is beautiful, funny, and forgiving!” She can be contacted at

God will bless you as you invite and connect with your new friend in Christ.
