null   MITE SUNDAY….1st Sunday of Every Month   

Another shout out to our congregation for your wonderful giving to the LWML mite mission collections.  From January-September you have given $524.04.  All of this money is sent to the SD District who then in turn, send it to the National LWML to be put towards mission grants.  Over the past two years, the LWML has given out over $1.5 million in mission grants.  At their 38th Biennial Convention held in June, 2019, the LWML adopted a $2.1 million mission goal for the next biennium!  Some of the 21 mission grants include providing resources for rural Kenyan schools, help to train mercy workers through the LCMS Deaconess Ministry, and bringing God’s word to people in their native languages.  So, your Sunday coins and those little mite boxes do add up to some good work!!  (PS:…the new president of the National LWML is Debbie Larson from our neighboring state of North Dakota!)
