Attention, Ladies:  The Alpha Circuit of our Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society (LWMS) will hold its Fall Rally at Crown of Life Lutheran Church (32725 Ryan Rd, Warren, MI 48092). The guest speaker will be Joyce Lehman of the Thai Village Crafts Mission, which exists to provide vocational training and income-generating work for the low income population in Northern Thailand. They produce a large variety of unique handmade jewelry, personal accessories, stationery, and home décor, with products available for sale in Thailand and the USA. They seek to develop long-term Christian relationships with artisans, while also connecting them to Christians and the opportunity to hear the Gospel through partnership with the WELS Lutheran church in Thailand. The Fall Rally will take place on Saturday, October 16th. Registration and continental breakfast begin at 9 am. Attendees are asked to bring their own bag lunch. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Ginger Olson by email (gingerolson72@gmail.com), or by phone (248) 288-3577.
