Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! (Psalm 100:2).

This week the very first meeting of the LWML Presidents Assembly will be held in St. Louis, Missouri. God willing, I will witness this event. Presidents from the forty LWML districts will come together to learn, sing, share, and hug.

Did you know that January 21 is National Hugging Day? If you have ever watched LWML sisters greet one another, there are numerous hugs given and shared. Why do we hug? Hugs with our sisters and brothers in Christ convey our thanks to God for blessing us with a Savior and giving us the opportunity to serve and praise Him.

Filling our Mite Boxes is a unique way we can send “hugs” to people all around the world, so they can learn of Christ and be blessed for eternity in the presence of God. Share a hug with someone today; tell them how God loves them and sent His Son to be their Savior.
