LWML – CONVENTION NOTES
The LWML 2021 convention was held June 24-27 in Lexington, KY. If you would like to see a few pictures that were taken, go to www.lwmlohio.org. The pictures are under the Events tab where there is a convention 2021 option. If you browse www.lwml.org you can see the recordings of the various meetings. If you think that all was serious stuff, watch for the interruptions by Gert and Marcy, a veteran LWMLer and a First-Timer, as they discuss how to do things in their church back home.
The inspiring part to see was the country flags procession. The Young Women Representatives carried in the flags of the 82 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES to which LWML has sent mites funds OVER THE 75+ years we have been collecting the coins and dollars in those little mite boxes.
We also heard several speakers who told us about how they are using the funds they have received recently to share the gospel of Jesus and the preachers did their best to inspire us to keep “Running the Race … Looking to Jesus.”
Because of the generosity of our current members the mission goal for 2019-2021 was met this year by mid-February. The overage was added to the amount that was designated for distribution over the next two years. The goal set for the next two years is $2.15 million. But, God willing, LWML will send out $2,221,176.13 to 28 different projects selected by the 518 voting delegates and officers of the league. That we can distribute more dollars than we hope to receive is due to many men and women who have remembered LWML in their estate plans. The endowment is growing. At this point in time, the bequests and the endowment fund are making it possible for 90% of the mites received by national LWML to be spent on these mission projects. Only 10% will be used to cover operating expenses.
Wanda Snyder was there with me and so was Pastor Kleimola. Ask any of us about it – we’ll be glad to share! – Vivian
Thank you to everyone who helped to make Vicar Mapus welcome to Concordia an event to remember. Everyone was so happy to see each other’s faces again and to eat food prepared by church members! Vicar Mapus and his wife, Tondra, were given a gift basket of “Toledo area” gifts. Hopefully, they have fun finding out about Toledo and the surrounding area.
Thank you to all who joined us for Beth’s retirement celebration Sunday July 11th. Congratulations Beth and thank you for your service to Concordia’s children over the years. - Wanda
