The final count for the 2015-2017 Mission Goal is $2,097,904.23. We surpassed the mission goal by nearly $100,000. We give thanks to God for all the mite offerings received which allowed mission grants to be funded and Gospel outreach completed. The overage of $97,904.23 will be used for the 2017-2019 Mission Goal.

Have you been reading President Patti's, Lutheran Women in Mission blog? We would love your feedback. Here’s a snippet of her recent blog post "In Memory of"
LWML Conventions bring remembrances of all the sisters we have enjoyed knowing and working with in our years of service as Lutheran Women in Mission. That is especially true during this 75th Anniversary Convention June 22-25 in Albuquerque. Our second offering at convention will be for our LWML Endowment Fund. We have used funds from this endowment in the past for leadership training events and planning meetings which bring women from across the United States together for face-to-face engagement, encouragement, and equipping. Wouldn’t it be great if we could build the fund to take more operating expenses from it and thereby channel more money to the mission grants?
