Heart to Heart

In Matthew Chapter 28, God calls us to make disciples of all nations. The LWML hears God's calling and is being intentional in their focus on calling women of all nations. The LWML MNS District supports the LWML Heart to Heart - Sisters of All Nations program and is excited to have two women who are passionate in growing their knowledge of the Heart to Heart Sister program, Evelyn Boltmann and Coral Rose. Evelyn and Coral are women with a Godly heart and a passion for women of all nations. They attended the training at the 2023 National convention in Milwaukee, WI. Coral and Evelyn are leading our Heart to Heart Sister program and they are being supported by two additional Heart to Heart Sisters, Jannie Vang and Toyin Fakugo. If you would like to have a Heart to Heart Sister visit your group or speak at a rally you can reach them via email, h2h@mnslwml.org

Jannie Vang is a part of the St. Paul Metro Zone and attends Gathering Place Lutheran Ministries in Arden Hills, MN. She is married and has three kids. She is the owner and founder of a small jewelry business called Jaspirations. 

Jannie's first national convention was in Tampa, Florida in 2005 when she was invited to join the Heart to Heart sisters, along with 40 + other ladies from different ethnic groups. In 2021, she attended the national convention in Lexington, Kentucky. She was trained in the Heart to Heart program and received her Heart to Heart pin by Deb Vinkemeier. She met and worked closely with Heart to Heart sisters in her district, Evelyn Boltmann and Toyin Fakugo. They attended the MN South District Convention in Wilmar, MN, in June 2022.


Toyin Akinde Fakuajo was born in the western part of Nigeria in Yoruba Land. Toyin was born into a Christian family and attended a nondenominational church. Her father became familiar with a Lutheran missionary in Nigeria. Then, her father lived for a while in the United States. After returning to Nigeria, he and all of Toyin's family joined a Lutheran missionary church in Akure. Toyin was baptized around the age of seven years old. Today, she is a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Brooklyn Park, MN. Toyin participated in the Heart to Heart leadership training when she attended the LWML National Convention in Albuquerque, NM. Additionally, she was part of the national Heart to Heart Sister programming in Mobile, AL. Toyin’s professional training included administrative leadership before making her way into Education. Education was a natural path for her as her parents were both educators. Toyin is a faculty member at Concordia University, St. Paul, Minn., in the College of Education. Toyin relates, “I was blessed with parents and families that held me to high standards and pushed me to be the best I can."
