Mission grants increased by LWMLC

Lutheran Women’s Missionary League-Canada (LWMLC) meeting in convention in Ottawa July 9-12, 2009 under the convention theme “Shine Like Stars” increased its mission grant goal by $25,000 to $125,000 . In addition the women raised more than $13,000 from a walk for missions. Subject to reaching the grant goal of $125,000, this will allow several additional grant proposals to receive funding. The Mission Walk also provided an opportunity to witness to the community in downtown Ottawa. Sporting t-shirts with the convention logo on the front and a web address on the back, 125 women walked to and around Parliament Hill and through the Sparks Street Mall. During the walk there were opportunities to talk with others about the group’s identity and mission.

Delegates re-elected Judy Grande, Regina, Sask., president for the next three years. Also re-elected were Arlene Kish, Bruno, Sask., vice-president, member development; and Gloria Meyer, Virgil, Ont., financial secretary. Newly-elected were Joyce Heinbuch, Rocky Mountain House, Alta., vice-president, Christian growth; Iris Barta, Winnipeg, vice-president Christian mission; Marion Hollinger, Saskatoon, vice-president, communication; Anna Gruber, Hanover, Ont., recording secretary and Linda Horton, Calgary, treasurer.
