John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
As a child growing up, I recall Easter was filled with excitement of getting a new outfit (including a hat and gloves), Easter egg hunt after church and a special Easter dinner. I did not fully understand the true meaning of Easter until I was older and started to attend Sunday school and Confirmation.
Later I learned that Easter is the most important day in the Christian faith. God sent His only Son on a mission to save the world through His death and His resurrection. Jesus’ resurrection brings a promise of eternal life to the world for whoever believe in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
In a few months at the 2017 convention, LWML will make a commitment to fund a new Mission Grant Goal for the 2017–2019 biennium. LWML will promise to successfully complete their Mission Goal by March 31, 2019.
The Time is NOW to start praying for LWML’s upcoming Mission Grant Goal – Prayers of Hope, Faith and Joy. Remember, the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League makes a difference throughout the World!
