Dear Mite Collecting, Prayer Warrior, Sisters in Christ,
Does it seem like the summer is flying by? It does to me.We often need to look months ahead to coming deadlines and events. So, let me remind you of our Fall Retreat on November 1-2 and our next Convention in Taunton, MA on April 24–25.
You remember that March 31st is the close of the 2018-2020 biennium. Do you know what that means?
All our Mission Projects will be funded! By March 31st, the$30,000 in mite donations we still need will have provided funds to Church Worker Scholarships, Seminary Distance Education, Little Blessings Daycare, Free Medical Care in India, and LCMS Missionary Expenses for the projects we have prayed about for 2 years. I’m looking forward to that future event!
Lord God, we pray for your blessing to achieve the goal You have set before us.To encourage mite donations from our congregations this summer, we created a campaign “Support Your Mission Project!” Of course, all mite donations support all themission projects, but let’s each select a project to especially pray for and support this summer.
Which of the 21 new LWML projects or the 5 remaining New England District projects will receive the most support this summer? That will be interesting! Contact me if you need more information.
Does it seem like the summer is flying by? Yes and no. We have so much to look forward to that the future seems near.
But today is right here; today is now.Today, we receive our daily bread. Today, we praise our Godin song and talk to Him in prayer. Today, we remember and encourage our Christian brothers and sisters. Today, we plant a seed – a kindness, a gesture, a truth – that the Holy Spiritcan grow to faith. Today, we rest in the saving grace of ourLord Jesus Christ.
This is the day the LORD has made;We will rejoice and be glad in it.(Psalm 118:24 NKJV)
Serving the Lord with gladness, with you,
Please, also, keep your hearts, prayers, and mite offerings on our NED 2018-2020 mission projects.
