President's Message

Letter from the LWML District President, Deb Vinkemeier

Adventures in Advent

These days with COVID our adventures are unusual. Adventures are supposed to be exciting and fun. The last nine months are far from being exciting and fun. They have been challenging, not knowing what the next days will bring.

In a few days, we will begin the Advent season, a time of getting ready for Someone of great importance. We look forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus. We also look forward to and prepare for His final coming in glory. A time to truly rejoice!

It is difficult to be filled with joy at this time without giving hugs, having our smiles hidden by masks, and not being able to visit loved ones in hospitals or nursing homes. It is a lonely time for many.

When we are faced with challenges and struggles, our life still can be filled with joy, not only for ourselves but also for others. Salvation is found in Jesus, the fulfillment of all God’s promises. How can we not find joy in that!

So this Advent, go on that exciting adventure by calling a shut-in, giving a donation to a food shelf, or sending a Christmas card along with an LWML Mustard Seed devotion. Adding joy to others will increase your own joy!

Jesus is the light of hope. Make the most of every day as you receive and shine that love and light of Jesus through your words and actions this blessed Advent and Christmas season.

I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. John 12:46
