We have seen many changes in the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League over that past 40 years. Our structure has changed, officer titles have changed, and of course our bylaws have changed to reflect the changes.
Yet LWML still has at its “mission heart” thousands of volunteers who dedicate their lives to making a difference in their neighborhoods and in the world and who use their gifts of time, talent, and treasure to share the love of Jesus. Those familiar Mite Boxes continue to be the heart of this mission emphasis, funding over 100 million dollars in mission grants since 1942.
LWML changes, but our mission continues to be the same: to assist each woman of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.
Most importantly, God has not changed!
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today and forever … (Hebrews 13:8).
