The official colors of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League are purple and gold. Purple, symbolizes royalty, and gold symbolizes value and integrity. The vision of the LWML is to recognize that each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God given gifts as she supports global mission and serves the Lord with gladness.
When you use your gifts to serve God, “Jesus’ love in action,” you are spreading the word of Christ around the world. You are painting the planet purple!
We would like you to share with us where, what, when, and how you have shared “Jesus’ love in action.” The Gospel Outreach Committee would love to hear about and share your mission servant activities! Please contact us through the LWML email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.

A New Kind of Gift Exchange — A Reflection of Jesus’ Love in Action
Instead of exchanging gifts at the Christmas Party last year, our LWML group decided to place the money we would have spent on a gift exchange to share Jesus’ love in action with a CASA family (Court Appointed Special Advocates for children). The family was anonymous but we were provided basic information about them. We gathered enough money to buy the family personal items and gifts. We were also able to pay some of their bills. This family is now attending church and the children are going to Sunday school. God has blessed us and them as we reached out to share the hope and promise of Christ at Christmas.
Thank You Lord for the opportunities that you put in front of us. Help us to recognize these opportunities to share your love and the Gospel with others.
