Are you making plans to attend the 27th Biennial LWML Wyoming District Convention on the beautiful Northwest Community College Campus in Powell, Wyoming on June 13-15th? Our theme verse is “Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice.” Philippians 4:4. The Triune God, whom we confess, is most certainly worth our rejoicing. Even in this world where there is trial and tribulation, He still offers us life in our waking and sleeping. He has appointed us good works to do which we confirm in our LWML mission statement. As Lutheran Women in Mission we joyfully proclaim Jesus, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others. Our purpose is to rejoice that God the Father, gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to be crucified, died, buried and resurrected back to life to redeem sinners. That’s us. God the Holy Spirit draws us together in the Holy Christian Church and continues to give us the good gifts of Word and Sacrament. 

At this convention you will hear this theme expounded in sermon, Bible Study, mission speakers, and from our LWML Representative, Debbie Yocky. We’ll gather to be uplifted in Word and Sacrament, we’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll make new friends and catch up with long-time friends. Our voting members which include society delegates will vote for mission grants to support, and new officers to direct our purpose.

Convention packets have been sent to every LWML group in the Wyoming District. You’ll find posters, registrations for convention, reservations for accommodations and much more. Continue to access website for updated information. Review the Mission Grant Proposals to be selected and share in your groups so your delegates know how to vote. Registration can be done online. I’m excited to share this time with you. I hope to see you there.

Buy a Cookie for a Seminarian

by Terri Denniston LWML WYD President

At a recent LWML Presidents Assembly in St. Louis, we collected for a Gifts from the Heart Project.  Since the LWML office is on the Concordia Theological Seminary St. Louis campus, the seminarians are offered hot chocolate and cookies when they stop by. The staff remarked that the lobby is a busy place during the day.

   The grand total for this project was $1055.51.
