Mite Donations Go Over the Top!

 Joyful praise and thanksgiving to God that the 2011-2013 Mission Goal of $1.825 million was met and has been surpassed! As of April 13, 2013, the amount received in mite donations is $1,834,269.27.

LWML President Kay Kreklau announced, “We are over joyed that all of the 19 grants selected will receive the funds promised at the LWML Convention in Peoria in 2011. Our sisters and brothers in Christ continue to faithfully give to help reach out and share about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to those who are hurting and lost around the world.”

At the 35th Biennial LWML Convention to be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, June 27-30, 2013, a new LWML Mission Goal will be prayerfully selected by the delegates for the mission work of the Lord during the 2013-2015 biennium. Mite offerings over the current $1,825,000 mission goal, as well as all mite funds donated from April 1, 2013 through March 31, 2015, will be added to the new 2013-2015 Mission Goal.
