From District President Joan Berquist
2022: Summer Mission Tidings

Different, but United

People watching! Recently when traveling home from Mesa, Arizona, after the birth of our newest granddaughter, Charlotte (8 lbs. 1 oz., 20 inches long) I had some uninterrupted time in my flight schedule to do some people watching.

All shapes, all sizes, all ages, each going on a trip or coming home from a trip. Each one different from the other. That is exactly what our LWML leadership is like. Each one is different from the other, but our goal is the same. We are all doing what we can to share Jesus with the world.

At our recent North Wisconsin District LWML convention in Green Bay, we voted to support a Mission Grant Goal of $115,000 and selected the Mission Grants that we will support during the 2022-2024 biennium. The officers we elected are Joan Berquist, President; Dawn Via, 2nd Vice President; Diane Simon, Treasurer; Rev. Brian Liermann, Jr. Pastoral Counselor. Continuing in office are Mary Harrington, 1st Vice President; Kaye Schwalenberg, Recording Secretary; Sharon Kautzman, Financial Secretary; Deb Young, Mission Grants Director; and Rev. Larry Yaw, Sr. Pastoral Counselor.

Our newly elected officers each bring their own talents to the board of directors, maybe doing it differently, but sharing the same goal. Please continue to pray for all of our leadership as some adjust to their new positions and others continue in their term of office, serving the Lord with gladness!

Join us at LWML NWD Fall Retreat on September 8-10 at Camp Luther. Registration form is in the 2022 Spring Mission Tidings.
