Letter from Lois
The LWML Utah-Idaho District virtual convention was held on August 15, 2020 – and what an event it was! Approximately 25 people gathered at Friendship Celebration in Meridian, Idaho, and many others in groups at churches and in the safety of their own homes. We gathered for our 37th biennial convention under the theme, “Lift Up Your Eyes” based on John 4:35b: Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are ripe for harvest.”
We heard from God’s Word as Terri Bentley urged us to see the opportunity to sow the gospel seeds. We can rejoice together as souls are saved for eternal life. Other speakers shared the stories of their faith walk, news of past and current grants, and greetings from the LWML Treasurer and President.
The tech team at Friendship Celebration did an awesome job in live streaming this event. To view the virtual convention video, click HERE. Thank you for your continued prayers as we seek ways to carry out God’s will in the months ahead.

Featured Mission: Disaster Response Trailers $80,000
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Convention chose nineteen grants with a budget of $2 million for the coming biennium. Disaster Response Trailers is an opportunity for the church to provide Gospel-centered care for both body and soul as teams reach out with mercy, love, and witness. These trailers provide trained volunteers with the tools and cleaning supplies needed for immediate results. Districts and congregations contribute financial support as well. At present, twenty trailers is the goal and the teams will be responsible to maintain their training in “down-times” by putting equipment to good use, aiding those in the area who need assistance with maintaining their homes. For more information on this grant and other 2015-2017 Mission Grants go to www.lwml.org.
