Kelli LaVoie and Tracy Eickhoff
MN South District's Committtee on Young Women Co-Chairs
The Lord was gracious and provided us with a fantastic response for our 2017 National YWR applications! We enjoyed reading through the applications and letters of recommendation. We were in prayer for weeks, asking God to guide us in selecting two YWRs to join us in Albuquerque this summer at the Convention, celebrating 75 years of sharing God’s Word! We are thrilled to introduce to you Amy Khamphanh and Adrienne Zhang. Tifanie Shimanski, from Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Hutchinson, will be serving as the alternate.
Amy is married and has two kids. She is a member of St. Matthew Lutheran church in Worthington. Amy is active in worship band, volunteers with Love INC and enjoys helping with various church servant activities. Adrienne is married with two kids and lives in Hamel. She enjoys participating in her church's choir at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Wayzata, along with an interest in community service events. Like all the candidates, their love of the Lord and desire to learn more about the LWML was obvious in their applications.
To help welcome Amy and Adrienne, we have a couple of requests of all of you LWMLers. If you are attending the convention this summer, stop and say hello – introduce yourselves! We want them to meet the wonderful ladies of the MN South District. If you aren't planning to attend the convention, please keep Amy, Adrienne, and all our MN South ladies, in your prayers during the convention. We pray this is going to be an uplifting and “dazzling” trip for Amy and Adrienne.
