Dear Mite Collecting, Prayer Warrior, Sisters in Christ,
Please sing with me — Our God is an awesome God! He reigns from Heaven above, with wisdom, power and love. Our God is an awesome God!

There’s so much LWML excitement this month!
1. Our Treasurer Shirley deposited $5,022.61 in February! Wow!  The hugest, most unbelievable donation came from our newest LWML group and congregation — Our Savior Lutheran Church in Topsfield, MA. As pastpresident Leslie said, “AWESOME!!!   With the Lord’s help, we are doing this!  We have a little more work but He is working through us! We have an awesome God!!!!”
2. Mission Grants #6a Christ’s Care for Children Kenya for $1080, and #6b Veterans of the Cross for $2000 are paid! We have $749.14 toward the remaining #7, 8, 9a, & 9b.
3. We’re so close to reaching our Mission Goal! We need $4,262.89 before March 31st. Can we do it? Not by ourselves of course, but with God’s help.   • God has placed these opportunities before us.   • God has opened our hearts to the needs of school children, church workers, and military veterans.  • God blesses us richly.
4. Our LWML New England District Convention is nearly here! April 13-14 at the Holiday Inn, Enfield, CT. As “God’s Jewels” we’ll celebrate the 75th LWML and 45th LWML-NED anniversaries, while our theme powerfully reminds us that God’s faithful people “shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels.” Malachi 3:17 KJV
5. Remember: each LWML group can send 2 delegates to the convention who are entitled to vote on the business of the Convention such as mission grants.
6. Remember: One Young Woman Representative (YWR) from each of our 5 Zones will be our guest for the Convention.  Applications are due to your Zone President by March 11th.
7. Opportunity for service! We’re seeking candidates for VP of the Communication Department.  Oh my! I could never do that. But wait, how about saying, “Here I am, Lord. Is it I Lord?” Talk to me. 😊

Keep singing, and encouraging, and praying, and smiling,

Barbara Lis                                                                                     Barbara

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
