Two years ago LWML Lutheran Women in Mission voted to raise $2 million by March 31 of this year to fund 19 mission grants. Why did they do that? They are dedicated to what Jesus tells his followers to do, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” Matthew 28:19.

Who have been working to raise $2 million dollars over the past 2 years, with God’s blessing and help? Lutheran Women in Mission — regular women like you and me. No “Wonder Woman” appears to write a $2 million dollar check. We haven’t found the ultimate fundraising strategy. Women (and men) across the United States unite to fill mission Mite Boxes with money above and beyond their regular gifts to their church. Prayers go along with those offerings.

Let us praise God and pray for His blessing as we enter the final week of receiving offerings for our $2 million goal. 

Serving with Gladness,
