For many years, the LWML Eastern District used to gather in September at a camp on the shores of Lake Erie, affectionately known as "a place in the Son.” We would get together there to "joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others." 

The camp closed and we were heartbroken. The theme for 2021 was “Can Do with Jesus” from Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Finding a new location was difficult. We had lots of questions, but no answers. Where would we go? Can we locate something similar? Will there be anyone in attendance? We were worried, but God was with us. He said as much in Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Yes, as Lutheran Women ‘on a’ Mission, we did discover a “new place in the Son,” where we could carry on the work of God. 

“God has plans for you as well, as we trust Him.”
