The purpose of the Heart to Heart Sisters (H2H) program is an intentional effort to welcome and encourage multicultural women to work side-by-side with all LCMS women in the life and work of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML). The H2H Sisters Committee assists multicultural women as they motivate, equip, challenge, and provide mentoring opportunities within the LWML for women of diverse ethnic groups to serve the church, participate in the LWML, witness to the world, and grow in relationships.
The Heart to Heart Sisters Committee is Giovanne Turincio, H2H Sisters District Leader and Chairman, and committee members Mary Afsharirad and Liz Burnet.
At present there are 19 trained H2H sisters in Texas. Giovanne and all of the H2H Sisters are available to speak at zones, societies or churches. Giovanne can assist with finding a speaker. These sisters are also ready to reach out to other women in their respective areas.
