Dear Mite Collecting, Prayer Warrior, Sisters in Christ,
Hallelu – Hallelu – Hallelu – Hallelujah! Praise ye the Lord! Hallelu – Hallelu – Hallelu – Hallelujah! Praise ye the Lord! Praise ye the Lord! Hallelujah! Praise ye the Lord! Hallelujah! Praise ye the Lord! Hallelujah! Praise ye the Lord!
Now, this song will be running through your head, too! We sang this song last week, as a round, at the LWML Board of Directors meeting in St. Louis, MO. The District Presidents and the LWML Executive Committee sang and praised and prayed and planned for the coming year of District conventions. New England District and Oklahoma District conventions are the earliest dates, on April 13th to 14th (mark your calendar). Florida-Georgia District convention is the latest date, on September 28th to 30th. Can you picture this? All around the country, all summer long, Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod women in a LWML District somewhere, will meet to elect a new mission goal and new mission projects to be funded with their mite donations. Praise ye the Lord!
Keep singing, my sisters, because we finally have mite donations to pay Mission Project #5b Reaching the Unchurched Through a Lutheran School, $5000. That allows us to pay #5a Comfort Dog Lydia, $5000, too! Hallelujah!
Keep singing, and encouraging, and praying, that we will reach our Mission Goal before March 31st so we can pay our remaining mission grants:
#6a Christ’s Care for Children: Kenya $1000 #6b Veterans of the Cross $2000
#7 Young Woman Rep. & Jr. Counselor to National LWML Convention $2000
#8 Operation Barnabas for Comfort Dog Congregations $1000
#9a Children’s Fund $357.25 #
9b Ft. Wayne Seminary Food Co-op $162.75
Hallelujah! • God has placed these opportunities before us. • God has opened our hearts to the needs of school children, new and retired church workers, and military veterans. • God blesses us richly. Praise ye the Lord!

PS: Just to keep you informed, we need mite donations of at least $3,600 each month over the next 4 months to reach our Mission Goal of $64,000 by March 31st. We need $1,000 more each month than our six-month average of $2,800 per month. I’m praying with you that our faithful giving will be “A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over,” poured into the lap of our mission projects! (Luke 6:38)
