    Fall Mission gathering of the Owatonna Conference Lutheran Women’s Missionary League will meet Saturday, September 30, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 2500 7th Ave NE, Owatonna, MN.  Registration and brunch is 9:00 - 9:30 am.  Cost is $10.00.  The program follows at 10:00 am and ends at noon.
    Fall Gathering attendees are encouraged to donate “ingathering” of Christian Children’s books to be given to St. Martins Lutheran Schools, Winona.  The Learning Center Preschool - books for ages 2-5; Elementary - ages 4-12; and high school teens - ages 13-18.
    The theme is: “Woman at the Well”, from John 4.  The speaker is Coral Rose, MN South District LWML, Heart to Heart Sister.
    Coral says:  “God worked in every season of my life, preparing me for my 8 years of missionary service in Africa.  God knows our life histories and loves us in spite of/because of them.  Christ came to be a part of that story.
    Coral Rose grew up in a Lutheran family, living mostly in the Milwaukee, WI area.  She earned an accounting degree at Valparaiso University and worked for 20 years in various business positions.  She then felt called to attend Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN, earning a Masters in Religious Education.  After a few years leading children’s ministry programs she was called to serve as a LCMS missionary in South Africa, and Ghana. She has returned to the U.S. and continues in her ministry.
    All women interested are welcome to attend.  There is a flyer on the LWML bulletin board in the hallway.
