From District President Becky Haltaufderheid
LWML Gifts from the Heart


Happy Easter!

He is Risen! Alleluia! After walking through Lent and Holy Week, we thank God He died to take away our sins and rose triumphantly so that we can enjoy our heavenly home with Him. We give thanks to Him with prayer, rejoicing, and our mite offerings. Thank-you for your faithful and prayerful mite offerings given. National LWML exceeded the $2,075,000 goal by $97,373.76! The North Wisconsin LWML was able to fully fund two grants and partially fund the District Professionals Financial Aid grant for a total of $34,500. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

In June many will be traveling to Mobile for the 38th Biennial Convention, June 20 – 23. If you are blessed to go, here is some important information you will need to know. If you are going by air, you will need to send your flight itinerary to Claire Carlson so that arrangements can be made to transport you from the airport to your LWML hotel. For more information click on this link: Airport Some of you will be riding the district bus which is always a great time of fellowship and special experiences. Sue Neider, Meeting Manager, will keep you up to date on the travel plans and your tours along the way!

On Thursday, June 20, there will be servant events to be involved in, half day tours in the Mobile area, and delegate training scheduled for 2:30 – 3:30 pm. The NWI District photo is scheduled at 5:00 pm in the lower level of the Convention Center (map) . We ask that all attending from NWI District be present for the photo. At 5:35 pm, our District Caucus will be held in Room 106B. We will be pinning our three YWR’s, introducing our delegates, H2H sisters present and special guests. On the way to the caucus you will be able to pick up your boxed supper.

On Friday morning, Karol Selle will be leading a early morning Bible study titled, “A Missionary? Me?” This new Bible study was authored by Karol and will be available for purchase at the LWML store. Jan Struck will be present as the humorous interrupter to “make a joyful noise to the Lord.” Donna Pyle will lead is in Bible study, and so many other speakers will inspire us.

Saturday morning begins with the “Mission in Motion” walk at 6:30 am. Get ready to have some fun as those walking will be led by a five-piece marching brass band that has marched the streets of Mobile for over 100 years! If you are not walking that morning, please come out and enjoy the music and activity. You can still support the LWML even if you are not walking. Fill out a Mission in Motion pledge form.

May you be blessed as you prepare for this convention. If you are unable to attend, I ask that you pray for safe travels for all, the delegates as they prepare to carry out the Lord’s work through the LWML, and ask that God blesses and guides all those involved in the convention preparations.

So blessed to serve!
