Dear Sisters in Mission:
Welcome to the website of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League New England District! As Lutheran Women in Mission, we encourage the women of the New England District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod to serve the Lord with gladness. We do this by sharing our mite offerings to spread the Gospel in New England, throughout the country, and the world. We are glad that you have chosen to visit our site. If I can be of any help, please feel free to contact me. You can also reach any member of our Board by looking under the Contacts tab.
I hope that the extra time we’ve had since the pandemic began has provided you with the opportunity to commit to spending more time each day in the Word of God and that you have continued that practice as your calendar begins to fill up again. Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night (Psalm 1:1-2).
Being in the Word helps us turn our focus from ourselves to God and His saving work for us. Through the Word we gain the strength, comfort, and courage that we need to face the trials of this life as we cling to the hope of our promised future in heaven. For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope (Romans 15:4).
Grounded in the Word of God, we live our lives bearing much fruit. We joyfully share the Gospel message with others as well as the blessings of our time, talents, and treasures to further His kingdom. As Lutheran Women in Mission, we encourage you to join us in walking together in the Word and sharing your blessings.
Serving the Lord with gladness,
Please Send Mites to:
Susan Lastowski, LWML-NED Treasurer PO Box 626 Holyoke, MA 01041 Remittance-Form
“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?” Romans 10:14-15
