Dear Sisters in Mission:
Welcome to the website of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League New England District! As 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.
Did you make New Year’s resolutions this year? Have you kept them? I’d like to suggest, if you are not already doing so, that you make a resolution to read the Word of God and study it each day. God speaks to us in His Word and Sacraments. For those not able to commune at the Lord’s Table due to the pandemic at this time, the Word provides the place where you meet your Savior and receive strength, comfort, and peace during these trying days.
It is only when we are connected to the Word, that is to Christ, that we thrive and bear fruit. Apart from Christ we are like branches that wither and die. When we, the branches, abide in Christ, we bear much fruit. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing (John 15:5).
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
