Leader instructions

This month we’re going to introduce the Mailbox Members program to a ministry of the LWML that in 2023 will celebrate its 20th anniversary. The Heart to Heart Sisters program has brought women of different ethnicities and cultures together from our church-at-large to celebrate their passion for reaching out with the Gospel message to others in their churches and communities.

The article A Place at the Table published in the Winter 2007 issue of the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly introduced the program to the women of the LWML. Sharing this article with your Mailbox Members will give them the opportunity to celebrate this on-going ministry of the LWML and rejoice with our sisters in Christ as each of us answer God’s call for workers in the harvest fields.  

Access the article A Place at the Table.

Hello from LWML! 

In 2003, the LWML established a program called “Heart to Heart Sisters.” This program seeks to bring together women of different ethnicities and cultures from the LCMS to celebrate their passion for reaching out with the Gospel message to others in their communities.

As we approach the 20th anniversary of the formation of this program we are encouraged to educate ourselves on its purpose by reading the article A Place at the Table, and more importantly pray for all who have participated or who will participate in the future so their voices are heard and lives are touched with the Gospel message.

Enjoy this article, and if you have any questions, give me a call at _____________________.

Please join me in prayer this month for the LWML and especially for those who hear the Gospel message through the bold witness of our Heart to Heart Sisters. 

Your Sister in Christ,
