In a few short days, your Montana delegation will head to Lexington to join our other sisters and brothers of the LWML as we meet at convention under the theme “Running the Race … Looking to Jesus”. Our Montana delegation includes: Nenette Loftsgaarden, Lynette Nussbaum, Barb Schneidenbach, Sandie Blevins, Sherrie Murray, our YWR’s Rebecca Harding and Grace Paulson, our Junior Counselor, Rev. Daniel Keinath and myself. We will do our best to represent you as we vote for new officers and new bylaw changes. The voting for Mission Grants and the Mission Goal were voted via email earlier this month. We are all so excited to see the results.
We would love for each of you to participate so please go to the LWML website at www.lwml.org/2021-convention to access convention resources, so you can:
• Prepare for the convention by prayerfully reading the pre-convention devotion.
• Go on a Virtual Photo Finish Mission Walk in your area.
• View or download the convention manual and worship folders for the opening service and the sending service, available by June 17.
• Watch the convention via Livestream. You can attend the worship services, listen to the Bible study, hear our Mites in Action speakers and missionaries, and learn which mission grants are chosen for our mite support in the next biennium.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:1-2).
Blessed to serve with each of you.
