On behalf of the women of the Minnesota South District of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, WELCOME to the Minnesota South District LWML web site. We are pleased to have you join us!
I am Margaret Hesemann, president of the Minnesota South District for the 2014 – 2018 term. It is indeed the Lord’s calling to serve in this office, and I pray that He will take my best efforts and perfect them to His glory in the LWML.
The Minnesota South District is composed of 8 conferences, 24 zones, 185 societies and an estimated membership of over 3700. Our mite goal for the 2016 – 2018 biennium is $265,000, used to share the Gospel message around the globe.
What a blessing it is to be in this office, serving with the talented and dedicated women I have come to know as sisters in Christ. Through them, the truth of Romans 1:12 NIV is made evident: “that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.”
As you can see browsing through our pages, we are women working for the Lord. Our mission statement says it well: “The mission of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is to assist each women of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in affirming her faith so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.” We serve the Lord with gladness, reaching out to women of all ages through mission education, mission inspiration and mission service.
I pray the Lord is leading you to our organization as an opportunity to grow in faith so that you too are enabled to use your gifts in ministry to His people.
In Christ’s love,
