From Our President

Happy New Year! Hello 2024!

The year of our Lord two thousand twenty-four is here! There is much to be accomplished over the next six months as the 2024 Convention Host Committee continues to plan for the district convention in June. The Nominating and Mission Grant Committees will meet to finalize the ballots for convention. I will be in St. Louis for the Presidents Assembly meeting January 25–27, 2024, and the Executive Committee and Board of Directors will be meeting in February. Spring events are in the planning stages and, then, in a blink of an eye, it will be time for the 2024 LWML Texas District Convention. With plenty of excitement in the air as the plans come together for the convention, there certainly is not a lack of items to be added to everyone’s prayer list.

Assembly of Leaders (AOL) is a training session held every four years by LWML. Five members of the LWML Texas District attended the sessions held in October 2022. A past member of the LWML Leadership Committee now lives in Texas and is also available to assist. These attendees were tasked with taking the training back to the members of their district. Filled with fun, facts, and features, the AOL time together is a great means of providing training in leadership skills, information on all the resources available to the members, and how each department is relevant to the mission of LWML. I have encouraged the presidents of neighboring zones to work together and plan an AOL session. There are six trained leaders that can be called upon to facilitate the training. The zones provide the facilities and, of course, eager attendees!

The first training session was incorporated into the Zone Presidents Orientation held in February 2023. Zones from the Greater Houston area, which includes Bayou City, Gulf Coast, New Horizon, Golden Harvest, and White Oak, conducted a successful gathering this past August. Another is planned for the south Texas area in April 2024, which includes the Mid Coast, Coastal Bend, and Rio Grande Valley. There is much more Texas District to reach. Quoting Dr. Seuss: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Perhaps the Lord has more places for you to go. These AOL sessions are made to give you “more things to know.” I encourage all women and pastors to attend the AOL session in your area.

Questions may be directed to me at president@lwmltxdist.org. The AOL team looks forward to sharing this information across the LWML Texas District that, with the Lord’s blessing, each member and supporter of the LWML, when called upon, will be better prepared to Proclaim Christ — Support missions — Serve others.

Being bold in Hope,
Frances Molitor
LWML Texas District President
