2018 Convention Report
Here am I Lord, send me. (Isaiah 6:8)
The Western Region is made up of congregations from North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Colorado. The Western Region WM had their annual meeting Oct. 7th, 2017. It was hosted by Bethel LBC in Antler, ND. “Here am I Lord, send me” (Isaiah 6:8) was the theme verse. Teri Nelson, the daughter of Arlene Schelling, one of the women of the Bethel congregation, came back to share her testimony and mission work she is doing in Ethiopia. Everything was wonderful; great speaker, food, and hospitality. The Antler gals did a super job, thank you gals for taking the time to host this event.
February continued to be our Cup of Blessing month. We had several congregations participate in this fund raiser. Thanks to those who did.
Our Western Region Pastors’ Wives retreat was held on April 13-15, at Metigoshi Ministries in Bottineau, ND. Eight PWs were able to attend. This year we had Alyssa McIvor, from Washington, come and share with the ladies. The theme verse was, “Therefore, encourage one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:18). She held 4 sessions and shared on how to encourage one another. They had rest and relaxation time, and crafts and sewing available to enjoy. Great week-end of sharing and great food. I pray they all returned home with a refreshed soul. Thank you to Alyssa for taking the time to come and share with the gals and thank you to all who were able to attend.
We are still in need of officers for our Region. Only position that is filled at this time is the treasurer position. Please contact Linda Vallevik if you are interested in a position. President position is needed right away.
