Quenched by the Water
The Lutheran Women's Missionary League's 35th Biennial Convention, Thursday, June 27, through Sunday, June 30, in Pittsburgh, Pa., will open under the theme, Quenched! by the Water. The theme is based on the following Scripture passage: (Jesus said) "… but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life" (John 4:14).
LWML members from all over the United States will gather to enjoy the fellowship of Christian sisterhood and celebrate the joy they all share in "serving their Lord with gladness." Participants will have the opportunity to: experience "Servant Connections" through various service events, worship with thousands of sisters and brothers in Christ, visit special exhibits in "The LWML Neighborhood," join the "Mission in Motion" fundraiser for mites, study God's Word with Donna Pyle (author of the Your Strong Suit Bible study), meet new friends and renew old friendships, and praise God through song. What more could there be to the convention experience than all of these things?
The most important part of the LWML convention experience is the selection of the mission grants that will be supported with our mites for the 2013 – 2015 biennium. Delegates will select the missions that will receive the funding needed to reach out to people everywhere who need to hear of God's saving grace through His Son, Jesus Christ. The convention objectives sum it up this way: Convention attendees will glorify the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, drink deeply from His Word and share His overflowing love. Whether or not you are able to attend the convention you can carry on the mission by faithfully feeding your mite box. We are together, Lutheran Women in Mission.
