At their April 2013 meeting the General Council of LWML–Canada approved a grant of $2,500 to help fund the overall budget for Lutheran Church–Canada’s first ever national outreach conference what will include a major outreach event at Winnipeg’s most-visited tourist attraction The Forks where more than 600 ROC (Reach Out Canada) and youth gathering attendees will gather, along with hundreds of tourists to hear a clear proclamation of the Gospel in word and music. In addition, the outreach event, July 5-7, will have a number of family-oriented activities to promote interaction. The grant from LWML–Canada will help make this possible.
Among the speakers at the ROC is a member of LWML–Canada, Helga Danielson. Her topic is “Sharing Hope from Woman to Woman.” She describes her session this way: God gives women unique opportunities to share their faith. When the opportunity arrives to talk about Jesus, are you tongue-tied? Do you stutter? Does your mind go blank, or do you say the wrong thing? When the opportunity is gone, do you feel like a witnessing failure, yet again? If any of this sounds familiar, this session is for you! We will look at simple ways women can share their faith in everyday life situations—with words and actions. The only prerequisite for attending this workshop is a strong desire to follow Matthew 28:19-20.
