Despite the pandemic, women of Lutheran Women’s Missionary League–Canada have managed to find many ways to serve others. Leading up to the triennial national convention they have been encouraged to share pictures of what Christ has accomplished through them.
Foothills LWMLC society, Calgary, is so thankful to our congregation for embracing our service projects, especially during these pandemic times.
