Post-Indiana District LWML Convention 2018

The 27th Biennial Convention of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League Indiana District was held on June 29 – July 1, 2018 at Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, Indiana.  The convention theme was from Isaiah 2:5b – Walk in the Light of the Lord.  Rev.  Mark Moog made that come to life for us in the Opening Worship Service in the Chapel of the Resurrection on campus.  Candidates for office and past presidents were honored at a reception afterwards at the Beacon Hall Grand Lounge.  Don Wharton, the song leader, led the group in "making a joyful noise to the Lord" throughout the weekend.  A Mission Moment was presented at each meeting.  This is a video showing the story of a grant recipient and its activities from the last biennium and how the grant made a difference.

The Mitey Mites walk began the day on Saturday.  Two business meetings followed.  In the first one the agencies that requested Mission Grants were presented.  The LWML had $122,000 to present to the agencies selected by the voters.  This meeting was followed by break-out sessions.  In the second session, our motivational speaker, Rev. Dr. Robert Roegner, shared with us his and his wife's (Kristi's) experiences in the mission field in Africa and now to continue in Tel Aviv, Israel.  Their organization is Apple of His Eye.  The By-Law amendments were presented and accepted.  This was followed by introduction of the officer candidates and the vote to fill these positions.  Other sessions of interest were held until dinner time.  The final meeting was held to finish up business.  Entertainment in the evening featured Three Longs and A Short (a barbershop quartet) and Great Lake Sound Chorus (a chapter of Sweet Adelines International).  A great night of music!

Sunday morning brought the final meeting.  All the voting results were presented:

Mission of the Month

Worship Anew - Wolf Chapel: 
The Great Commission moves us in Mark 16:15 to Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation; and Worship Anew is taking God's Word to a growing population of those who are aging and the unchurched. Worship Anew seeks to share Christ's love via television ministry through growing markets in Indiana and throughout the rest of the world. Worship Anew will reach thousands each week in Indiana using broadcast television. The LWML Indiana District assembled in convention in Valparaiso, IN, on June 29 - July 1, 2018, and granted the sum of $10,000 to enable Lutheran Ministries Media to expand Worship Anew coverage in the district and throughout the world.  Worship Anew
