Human Care

We have certainly experienced frigid, below zero weather, but it’ll soon be a memory and Spring will be here! How about providing Blessings Bags? You can have them in your vehicle, ready to hand out. I have posted this before but there is always a need. This is a February 2016 Mission Servant Activity. Find it on the Mission Service Activities site

Soup kitchens will be a welcome respite for those needing a hot meal. Collect canned soup and boxed crackers and deliver to a soup kitchen or to a local food pantry.

February is the month of love. Although, shouldn’t they all be?! Our sweet shut-ins would love to know they are remembered. Make cards to be distributed to those living in a care facility. Many free printable Christian valentines are available on the internet or get creative yourself! Candies are often appreciated as well!

On the LWML website there is a resource called, “LWML Toolkit Kits”. You can do a search using the title “LWML Toolkit Kits”. There are a wide variety of kit ideas. One, which goes along with making cards noted above, is the “Shut-In and Nursing Home Visit Kit”. It has many suggestions that could be included. Be sure to contact agencies/nursing homes to make sure they can use them. Or, provide kits for your church’s elderly.

You can also find Servant ideas at this link, Sharing Jesus' Love Through Action 2019 — A Year's Worth of Mission Service Activities and Mission Service Activities Archive.

The 2019 National LWML Convention’s Gifts from the Heart are listed in detail in the Quarterly Winter 2018 Convention Insert, page C. Please consider choosing one as one of your Spring Zone rally’s GFH.

Please share an activity your society, church or zone has done to be a servant to others. You can email our eNews editor, Roxanne Pieper at enewseditor@mnslwml.org. National also likes to hear from you at depgo@lwml.org. Pictures are always appreciated.
