Dear LWML Leaders,
Confidence in Christian leadership is being grounded in the Word.
It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed (Deuteronomy 31:8).
Congratulations! After prayerful consideration, you have accepted a leadership position within your LWML district, zone, or local group. You have met up with your predecessor, and she has handed off her materials. Now is the time to open the binder and get started. On the first page, you see a beautiful image with these words — It is the Lord who goes before you (Deuteronomy 31:8). These are the words Moses spoke to Joshua when he was chosen to lead the Israelites back to the promised land. You will not be leading tens of thousands of people across the Jordan River, but you will be helping women share their love for Jesus with others. You have no need to be afraid. First and foremost, God will be with you. Secondly, you have a huge resource and support group in the other women of the LWML. Some are previous leaders, some are peers, but all are prayer warriors for you. Your work for the LWML will be blessed because you have faith that God is by your side, and you are seeking to serve Him.
God’s blessings as you serve Him through the LWML.
