LWML Mission Statement
As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.
Go your way: behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. Carry no moneybag, no knapsack, no sandals, and greet no one on the road. Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace be to this house’ Luke 10:3-5
When you think about these seventy-two apostles that Jesus is sending out, consider what must have been going through their minds as they heard the Lord’s instructions. Go out into a hostile world and proclaim an unpopular message, but don’t take anything with you, and proclaim peace wherever you wind up. That sounds like a crazy way to spread the Gospel! Yet, that was Jesus’ plan. It would be scary out there; they would be rejected at times; but they didn’t need any creature comforts to get them through. The Lord would sustain them, and Christ would provide for their needs along the way. This is part of what LWML does today, supporting missionaries so that they can go into the world without concern, trusting that Christ will care for them through His Church. Your support of the LWML will ensure that we will be able to continue the mission. Through you, by God’s grace, the Gospel is proclaimed, even in places that are hostile to it, so that many more may believe and be saved.
Mite Sunday is July 31st. There will be a 2nd freewill offering taken to help LWML fund missions around the world.
