I send greetings to you, dear sisters in Christ!

The LWML Convention in Mobile, Alabama was a very memorable event. I had no idea that I Chronicles could be so interesting!

Our mission grants have been chosen for the 2019-2021 biennium, along with the $2.1 million dollar goal. Be sure to be in prayer for these projects. You can view the 2019-2021 Mission Grants video and share it with your congregation. Each grant is shown in the order chosen by the voting assembly and includes the name, number, and amount of the mission grant. It is available on the LWML website at www.lwml.org/mission-grants and on You Tube.

LWML Handbook

LWML Handbook Information to Share:

"Societies and individual members are the foundation upon which the Lutheran Women's Missionary League is built. The entire LWML program begins with participants at the congregational level."


A woman's involvement in LWML usually begins through the local organization. Local groups

  • help each woman draw closer to the Lord
  • encourage and equip women to use their God-given talents in sharing God's love, and
  • provide opportunities for service within the congregation and for outreach to the community and world. (LWML Handbook 2017)
