October always brings Pastor Appreciation Month to my mind. When we celebrated 80 years of LWML in 2022, I pondered how many pastoral counselors — national, district, or zone — have served. It must be an astounding number! Let us praise God for sending those who teach and guide us through His Word!

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 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!” (Romans 10:14-15).

All pastors are special, but LWML Counselors are extra special! Let’s be sure they know how much they are appreciated, not just in October, but year-round. Check out this Mission Servant Activity for ideas.
