Mite Update

Thanksgiving Blessings to everyone,

The mites collected during September were $12,400.32 which brings the total of mites collected for this biennium to $216,671.63. Continue to keep up the great work of collecting mites and we will reach our 2020-2022 goal of $265,00.

With the Thanksgiving holiday only weeks away, prayers of thanksgiving are uplifted to all the wonderful ladies of Minnesota South who have generously given mites this past month.

And what you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. (Colossians 3:17 NIV)

Most of you know we have a new mission statement, but I’d like to repeat it.

As Lutheran Women in Mission, we joyfully proclaim Christ, support missions, and equip women to honor God by serving others.

Here are some ways to give a donation to mites.  Give in honor of someone, in honor of a special anniversary or a birthday. And remember that someone who is special to you that taught you to know about Jesus.  That is what mission work is all about.

One of the objectives of the LWML Minnesota South is to gather funds for mission grants.  If you are unable to give mites at your local society this month, consider using the link "Give Online" on the home page under the Mite Goal Graph.  It is a secure and safe way of giving.

WHAT IS A MITE BOX?

It's a cardboard box (3-1/8" x 1-3/4" x 2-1/4") designed by LWML to received thank offerings, above and beyond our regular church giving.  It holds pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars and checks.   

Mite boxes are FREE and can be used by LWML members, their families and friends.  Ask any LWML member about the box.  Take it home and place wherever you can feed it: dressing able, office desk, laundry room, kitchen counter, or even the car, etc.
