From District President Becky Haltaufderheid

The Fall Rallies are now completed. What a great Bible study we shared on the different religions written by Pastor Doug Reinders. As I journeyed throughout the district, this Bible study was presented by ladies that dressed the part and by ladies reading about the religious differences from additional sources they had researched. Thank-you, Pastor Reinders for teaching us in this manner.

The Assembly of Leaders Committee completed the last leadership training on November 2. Thank-you to the five societies who graciously hosted these training sessions. I know many ladies that attended said they were happy they attended and learned new skills to use in their LWML functions in the future. I encourage you to continue to use and research the information we shared with you in order to engage, encourage and equip the ladies of your congregations to use their God given gifts and talents as they serve the Lord with gladness through the ministry of the LWML.

Please remember that December 3 is Giving Tuesday! This is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, a day to give to the LWML Mission goal. This year, two generous donors have come forward to match funds up to $20,000. You are able to donate online by using LWML Facebook page, by going to lwml.org/givingtuesday, or by sending your contribution to the LWML office at 801 Seminary Place Suite L010, St. Louis, MO 63105 and be sure to note “Giving Tuesday” with your contribution.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and Todd and I wish you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving. I am thankful for Jesus’ protecting arms as I traveled all over North Wisconsin District this fall. I am especially thankful to be side by side with all of you as we go about being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Blessed to serve!
