Dear Mite Collecting, Prayer Warrior Sisters in Christ,
Greetings on this Ash Wednesday.

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:3-6

I’ve chosen this theme verse for my LWML-NED Presidency, because our Partnership in the Gospel is a joy and privilege.
I will strive to
Remember with Thanks and Pray with Joy,
being Confident through Christ.

At our LWML-NED Board of Directors meeting last week, I was reminded again of the faithful, loving, committed, Sisters in Christ elected to serve God through LWML in New England.  I know they are representative of the faithful, loving, committed Christian Sisters throughout our District.  Please continue to pray for us and for each other – with JOY for our Partnership!
•    We currently have a few openings on the Board.
•    Our committees would always like more members.
•    The Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for election at our District convention 2018.
•    Oh, did you feel that little nudge?

We’re especially THANKFUL for our Counselors: Reverend Randall Bessette of First Lutheran Church in Holyoke, MA and Reverend Matthew Richardt of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Smithfield, RI.  Reverend Bessette shared with us that he continues to pray for the many prayer requests submitted during our 2016 Convention.  Praise God for His faithfulness!

I encourage you to continue your mite box donations during this Lenten season.  Perhaps, if you’ve decided to forego extra snacks during Lent (like me), then you’ll have extra money for mites! LWML is confident we’ll reach the $2,000,000 mission goal for this biennium ending March 31st.  Our extra donations can help meet and even surpass that goal! Remember, 25¢ of every dollar from LWML New England is sent to LWML for national-level mission grants. Send your mites to Treasurer Shirley Schindler as soon as you can!

… being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Serving Joyfully,
Barbara Lis

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
