The Iowa West District Lutheran Women in Mission gathered (around 400 people) for their convention June 16-18 at Camp Okoboji. I attended as our Des Moines West Zone President. We collected the following items to distribute to those in need:
- Eyeglasses for MOST Ministries - the number of these was not reported, except they said they received "A lot!"
- Towels and washcloths for Orphan Grain Train - a total of 584 towels, 72 hand towels and 473 washcloths
There were a number of other offerings taken at the convention as well as "Mystery Silent Auction" (which was a blast).
Total funds raised AT convention for mission work was $23,579.59
2022-2024 Mission Goal (Mites) is $218,484. Keep those mites coming :)
thanks and blessings,
