About 70 women plus a few husbands and children, gathered at Shepherd’s Hill at the Crossroads on September 20-22 to retreat from the hustle and bustle and learn more about perseverance.
Donna Pyle led the women to study Nehemiah through her new book titled “Perseverance: Praying Through Life’s Challenges (A Nehemiah Battle Plan).”
Dr. Becky Grossmann, Lutheran Bible Translators, told attendees about the ways that the LWML has helped to share the Word of God to the people in Liberia, Africa.
God’s beautiful fall colors were showing in the trees around Shepherd’s Hill at the Crossroads.
The ladies of the LWML ND District were also able to participate in the dedication of the new playground at Shepherd’s Hill. This playground is the fulfillment of a Mission Grant selected at the 2014 District Convention.

The students are well and getting ready to attend the bi-annual Catechetical Club Competition next month, August 5-8! This time, the students and leaders will all meet at the Project 24 site, Rongo. Rongo is located outside of Kisii in southwestern Kenya.
I recently had the opportunity to attend and work the LCMS National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis. What an incredible experience to be able to share our faith and this wonderful program with the 23,000 youth and leaders of our church! The NYG theme this year was “Real. Present. God.” In the same way, The Catechetical Club Competition has a theme each time, and this August it is “Defend Your Faith”!
Please pray for the students and leaders as they gather for fellowship and to share in God’s love.
Baraka za Mungu!
