From President Linda Pelot
On behalf of the convention committee from zones 4,6,10 and 11 and the North Wisconsin District Board of Directors, I would like to invite you to the 35 Biennial North Wisconsin District LWML Convention. It will be held June 20-22, 2014, at the Patriot Center in Rothschild, Wis.
“Come to the Mountain” to be encouraged in your faith walk as you fellowship with your sisters and brothers in Christ. There may be laughs and tears, and the important business of electing officers and new mission goals will be accomplished. The theme of our convention from Micah 4:2 beckons us to “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, He will teach us His ways, so that we may walk in His paths.”
Our prayer is that the convention will be a mountaintop experience for each of you. You will find the necessary registration here on the website or in the January Mission Tidings.
May God bless our time together as we gather in His name at the foot of Rib Mountain. Come to the Mountain” and be blessed, and be a blessing to others. Come to the mountain!
Former LWML District President Dies
It is with sadness that I must report
that Lois Kroenke has lost her battle with
leukemia and gone to her heavenly home on April 16, 2014.
Her last days were spent at Maple Lane in the Town of Belle
Plaine with her husband, Robert.
Lois had served the LWML so faithfully as District President
from 1958-1962. From 1965-1971 Lois and her husband served as
missionaries to New Guinea where her skilled husband, Bob,
constructed many of the mission buildings.
Their mission story is published in their book titled
“Letters from New Guinea.”
She was a faithful member of St. Jakobi Lutheran Church, but so much more than that, she was a faithful servant to our Lord. She never failed to point people to Jesus and knew just the right words to say to remind people of their eternal importance to God and His great love for each of them. Her gardening skills were out of this world and when I asked her the “secret,” she replied that she forked her grass clippings into her garden throughout the summer to add compost continuously. She was slight of stature, but mighty of deed, full of boundless energy, and a joyful servant of the Lord. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her. Our loss is heaven’s gain -- Lois has gone home.
