Ingathering Report - Spring Rally Mar. 26th


The Des Moines West Zone Lutheran Women in Mission Spring Rally was held at Mount Olive on March 26th. 41 attended, representing the 8 churches in the DM West Zone LWML.

We collected ingathering items for the women and children at Hope Ministries. 

We made 1034 pod packets!! 

That total includes those we made at the servant event just before the Rally, as well as those that were already made and brought. Bravo!!

The closest guess came from Kim Walker: 940. Congrats, Kim!!

Second closest guess was Ann Bass: 1234.

Way too high guess: ME!! :-)

Here are the rest of the totals:

Wash Strips: 952

Dryer Sheets: 6 boxes

Women's Underwear: 272

Pull Up Diapers: 792

Other misc. items: 40

The three ladies who counted decided to give Agape Pregnancy Resource Center 300 of the pod packets. Everything else will go to Hope Ministries for their ministry to women and children.


Thankful for your kind and generous hearts!

Sandi, Zone president
