Excerpt from President Susan's LINK article
Dear LWML Eastern District Ladies & Gentlemen:
Let me start off with very good news! As of March 15,
2020 we have enough mite money to pay off the last 2
mission grants of the 2018-io20 Biennium! Praise God!
Thank you all for your contributions over the last 2 years!
I attended the Assembly of Presidents in St. Louis in
January led by our new LWML National President, Debbie
Larson. Much of the discussion was around District
Conventions coming up in 2020. We had our Eastern
District Board of Directors meetings at our host hotel in East Syracuse, NY
on Feb. 28-29. Everything looked very hopeful at that time.
With the Coronavirus appearing in the US in March and endangering so
many, your Board of Directors considered moving our convention to November,
but, with no assurance it would be over by then, it was decided to cancel
the convention this year. This decision was made with a lot of prayer and
trust in the Lord. It was also made to protect the ladies and gentlemen who
would come to the Convention.
Please continue to get your delegate names
to me by April 15th. We will vote on bylaws, officers and mission grants
online or by snail mail. The officers will be installed at Camp Pioneer in
September. The Keynote address, opening sermon, mission grant speakers,
bible study will be shared with you via e-mail June 12-14, 2020.
I wish you a blessed Holy Week and wonderful Easter celebration on
April 12th. May you see the miracle of Jesus' rising from the grave as the
hope for our troubled world.
Let me continue to challenge you to be in the Word daily and pray for
ways you can serve Him at home, church and in your community. If you
need prayer, do not hesitate to let me know. ... I am here for YOU!
Eastern District President
