Dear Mite Collecting, Prayer Warrior Sisters in Christ,
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) announced the 2015–2017 Mission Goal of $2 million was met and has been surpassed!
President Patti Ross shared, “Praise and thanksgiving to God! Through Mite Box offerings and generous responses to our Lord’s blessings, LWML will be able to fund all 19 grants chosen by the Des Moines Convention in 2015.
In humble adoration and with praise to our faithful God, we dedicate these dollars to Him for the work of missionaries and ministries around the world who work to spread the saving message of Christ’s love and forgiveness.”
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow!

Don’t stop now! I encourage you to continue your mite box donations during this Lenten season. Our New England District mission projects remain to be funded.
We’re –almost—halfway to our goal, but we’re just over halfway through the time we have. We’re running a little behind.
Continue to pray for the full funding of our projects, such as
#4a Church Worker Scholarships,
#4b Hands of Grace,
#5a Comfort Dog Lydia,
#6b Veterans of the Cross, and all the way to
#9b Fort Wayne Seminary Food Co-op Assistance.
Project #9b happens to be last, but it’s not last in importance, or last in the difference our mites make in the lives of others as we bring the saving Good News of Jesus Christ!
Thank you for allowing me this little delay in my letter to you. Thank you for your prayers for our family on the death of our sister-in-law. Please continue to lift up each other, our LWML, our pastors, our Synod, and our nation in prayer to our Heavenly Father.
Blessings on your Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and joyous Easter day!
