Potomac Zone Rally The Potomac Zone Spring Rally was held at Calvary Lutheran Church in Silver Spring, MD on Saturday, April 21, 2018. There were 44 participants and over one thousand dollars was donated and divided between our two Gifts from the Heart recipients, Faith and Work Enterprises of Baltimore, MD and Christ Lutheran Church of the Deaf, Silver Spring, MD. Michelle Baughman and Patti Adamson were installed as new zone chair and co-chair at the Zone Rally (pictured at top left.) Old Dominion Zone Rally The ladies of the Old Dominion Zone gathered at Redeemer Lutheran in Richmond one Saturday morning. 24 LWML’ers represented 5 Zone churches enjoyed a morning brunch. Zone Chair, Marge Bruning, welcomed guests. Natalie Hartwig’s (Trinity Lutheran) devotion reminded us to turn to our family of believers, as did the disciples after Christ’s crucifixion, for support & encouragement in troubled times. Natalie reminded us that all hymns in the Lutheran Service Book may be used as devotions. Our special guests Pastor JP Cima & wife Aimee were accompanied by their three children. Pastor spoke of his family’s ten years in Hanoi, Vietnam, of Vietnamese people who became close friends, Christians & pastors, who are continuing their work since their ouster from Vietnam. The Cima’s new assignment is in Cambodia, adjacent to south Vietnam! Monetary Gifts from the Heart were collected and presented to the Cima’s. From the beginning of JP’s vicarage in Vietnam, they have supported their own missionary work 100 percent! Please pray for them as they transition to Cambodia this summer.
Christine Maconachy, our District Representative, brought greetings from Edi Collis, our Chesapeake District President. She spoke of District & National Mission Grants, Chesapeake District Convention this September, & National LWML Convention in June 2019. She encouraged us to be involved, support Mites to fund Mission Grants, and spread the gospel message. New Zone officers were elected: Penny Helmore, Chair; Marian Dawgert, Co-Chair; Linda Nau, Secretary/Treasurer.
