LWML Mission Grant # 5

Romans 10:15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Mission Central in Mapleton, Iowa is a place of beautiful feet. The staff of Mission Central together with the LCMS Office of International Mission use their beautiful feet to help missionaries secure funding.

They are an avenue for continued support for missionaries who use their beautiful feet to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people throughout the world.

$100,000 would provide for a variety of necessary missionary resources such as orientation, language training, transportation, insurance, housing, medical care, utilities, and education of missionary children.

Your mite offerings help fund mission grant, #5, Current Missionary Need.

May God bless your beautiful feet as more missionaries are enabled to be sent and preach the good news. To God be the glory!

Christian Hope Through Mass Media in Egypt

LWML Mission Grant # 7

null

Imagine living without ever hearing God’s Word?

Mission grants are still in need of payment so that the message of Jesus and His gift of Salvation may spread to the ends of the earth. 

Through your mite offerings this mission grant is a reality.

Arabic satellite television programming is reaching families, refugees, and citizens of the region through a new television program broadcast in Cairo, Egypt.

Lutheran Hour Ministries' television is expanding the proclamation of the Gospel, especially in the refugee camps of Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey.

This may be the only opportunity for people to hear about Jesus. This new television broadcast has the potential to reach millions of people throughout the Middle East, refugees, and citizens alike, with the message of faith and the true love of Christ and to be a strong Christian voice and witness in the area.

LWML Mission Goal 2017 - 2019

nullprogress thermometer

Thanks be to God for every mite given to reach those who do not know our Savior - Jesus the Christ.

At the 75th Anniversary Convention in Albuquerque, NM, the membership chose a goal of $ 2,075,000 to be raised for Missions in this Biennium. It was an aggressive goal that reflected our 75th year of Mission Grants, but was done in complete trust in our gracious Lord.

As we come to the close of this Biennium let us fulfill the Anniversary goal that was set and celebrate God's goodness to the Lutheran Women's Missionary League. May His will be done with sacrificial joy as we live in Christ alone.

Equipping Youth to Witness for Life

null

Mission Grant #13

Y4Life is a part of Lutherans for Life that equips young adults on college campuses to share the Gospel through life issues.

Since abortion occurs at an alarming rate in high school age teens, the need for education about alternatives to abortion is great. This grant will expand this campus ministry program to include Lutheran high schools. And since 17% of Lutheran high school students have no religious affiliation, Y4Life has an opportunity to tell these fellow classmates about Jesus and provide helpful information about alternatives to abortion and the sanctity of life.

nullBy training student leaders and providing ongoing mentorship and support, students will proclaim Christ and raise their voices for life.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:13–14).

LWML Mission Grant #8

NOLA 4H is the acronym for the LWML Mission Grant #8 Hearts for the Hungry, Homeless, and Hurting in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Six LCMS congregations, whose own church buildings experienced flooding from Hurricane Katrina, are reaching out with the help of the LWML to show the love of Jesus by providing food, shelter, and comfort to those still suffering with homelessness and lack of basic necessities in the hardest hit neighborhoods.

Your Mite Box offerings, given in prayer, will go towards equipping each of the fellowship halls of the six churches to serve more people with Bibles, shelter, food, clothing, toiletries, clinics, and counseling.

Providing Food and the Gospel to Starving Children

null

LWML Mission Grant #1

I know we’ve all seen the pictures of hungry children, and the situation tugs at our hearts.  We might even have said “I wish there was something I could do to help.”   Well, the truth of the matter is that you (all of us) are helping.

nullAt the Albuquerque LWML Convention delegates voted to fund a $ 40,000 grant for providing food to starving children.  This grant was the number one vote-getter out of all the proposed grants. One half of this grant has already been funded. Our mite gifts on Giving Tuesday will help fund the balance and provide food for the hungry. 

Mercy Meals of Siouxland (Iowa West) has packaged over a million meals of fortified rice/soy meals for the starving children all over the world.  With one regular packaging event held each month, along with several special events, meals have been packaged and sent to countries like Haiti, the Philippines, and Liberia, including a children’s orphanage in Bucharest, Romania.  Approximately 45,000 meals are packaged during a single event.

nullThis is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth (1 John 3:16-18).

Serving the Lord in my youth

When I was a kid, I did not know the might of the Mite Box. I just wanted one so that I could put money in it to help the kids in other countries and build buildings that I heard my mother talk about. She was helping so I wanted to help. After all, I went to those LWML meetings too (sitting quietly while the ladies held their meeting). The youth I have met over the past years are not sitters. They are doers and want to fully participate in the mission of the LWML. Let’s help by empowering them, trusting them, and valuing their opinions. Work with them to establish an LWML group of their own and offer them a seat on the zone or district board. They are ready to serve with you now as they prepare to be our future leaders.

nullTrain up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).
