She has enthusiasm for the organization and a commitment to encourage other young women of the WLML.

She has the willingness to commit to the position for two years and is willing to travel to conventions and Board of Director meetings.

Be the Hero, Be the Answer, Be the Match!

Donation of your body tissues is a great way to practice Christian stewardship and to help others in need. There is a need for bone marrow donators across the country and we can help! To help, go to bethematch.org and answer a few simple questions. You will be sent a kit to swab your cheek and return it to be analyzed. Testing is free for women 44 years of age and younger, but don't worry if you are over the age limit, you can help too!

Get your whole congregation involved by sponsoring a blood drive through the Oklahoma Blood Institute, and inform people about the program at the blood drive. You can even have laptops available to help people sign up.

Join the YWRS in this great stewardship opportunity and spread God's love to your community and the world. The likelihood of being a match is small, but it is still important to register because you never know who you could help. Two of our very own district board members have been on the registry for over 10 years and have never been contacted, but are ready to help when the time comes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Tish Mindemann (oklwmlvpofsfm@gmail.com)
