The LWML Oregon District’s first event after Covid-19 restrictions were eased was our 2021 Christian Life Retreat. Sixty-six LWML women connected during the retreat as we put together 470 Blessing Bags to be distributed to the homeless and to care centers throughout the district. This Mission Service activity (March 2021, titled Mission Service Kits) can be found on the LWML website under the Service tab on the home page. Click here for details.
Additional items that were not placed in the bags were sent to each zone, so they could prepare Blessing Bags in their areas for those in need in their communities.
Working together to help spread the Good News that God loves each of us, no matter what our circumstances, was a joy and a privilege. This activity can be replicated in other areas not only to serve others, but also to give Lutheran Women in Mission fellowship time together. It would be a perfect “What’s Your 80?” activity.
May God bless your service to and with others.
LWML Oregon District President
