Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
The LWML Oklahoma District Board of Directors held a conference call on March 14, 2020 to discuss the scheduled April 17-18 District Convention.
The decision was made to postpone the convention for the health and safety of everyone to a later date to be determined; however, the delegates will be voting electronically on the original dates of April 17-18.
Details on voting and the future date, of what will now be a Mission Servant Conference, “Fix Our Eyes on Jesus” will be forthcoming.
Please remember all those affected by the COVID-19 and all health care workers in your prayers.
Dianna Just, LWML Oklahoma District President
and the LWML Oklahoma District Board of Directors

Looking back on my four years as LWML President, I don’t think I can really settle on one highlight. The celebration of the 75th Anniversary of LWML in 2017 was a highlight because of the new logo and a special 75th Anniversary Mite Box design. In 2019 it was the publishing of the new history book and the new Mite Box design.
My ride on the LHM Rose Parade float was a personal highlight because I dreamed of attending that parade all my life. We have been back to work on the floats ever since then and plan to go again this year. Sitting on the float next to Rev. Dr. Dale Meyer, President of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, and former Lutheran Hour Speaker, led to us moving our LWML St. Louis office to the Seminary campus. This in turn has led to better contacts with seminary students and their wives as well as more interaction with the staff and faculty. The benefit of our future pastors knowing how LWML is a partner in their ministry and the support available to them and their wives is invaluable.
One more personal highlight was getting started on LWML podcasts. I had pushed for those for many years and they are now a reality. I hope you’ve listened to them! Also, getting an LWML App was a big step. As always, there are so many things going on in LWML! So many ways to “Serve the Lord with Gladness!” ~Patti Ross
The mission of the Lutheran Women's Missionary League is to assist each woman of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world.
In a historic meeting at Zion Lutheran Church in Oklahoma City, women from six cities-Apache, Chickasha, Norman, Shawnee, Lawton and Oklahoma City-became the first Lutheran women to organize as the Lutheran Women's League of Oklahoma in l928. Their goal was to unite to further mission work, particularly in Oklahoma. In 1942 they became one of the 15 original charter members of the national Lutheran Women's Missionary League. Since that time Oklahoma LWML has grown to include women of 74 congregations and a membership approaching 1450.
