Meet Me in St. Louis!

I always enjoy WMU’s Annual Meeting each year as WMU members from across the country gather to worship together and learn about missions work happening around the world. This summer’s meeting, however, will be extra special. I will be hosting children’s missions groups as they have an awesome opportunity to be a part of WMU’s Annual Meeting in St. Louis!

While planning this experience, a coworker asked me what excited me most about this event. I must admit—I know children and their leaders will enjoy plenty of things about this afternoon experience. But what I find most exciting is the opportunity for children to understand what they are learning right now in Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action can be a way of life for them that will impact the world for Christ.

Exciting? Absolutely!

As part of the afternoon, children’s missions groups will have the opportunity to meet missionaries from around the world, WMU’s executive director, Wanda Lee, and national WMU president, Linda Cooper. Children will also tour our exhibits and find out how Girls in Action, Royal Ambassadors, and Children in Action members are an important part of the WMU family.

I’ll also challenge children to participate in missions each and every day of their lives—by learning, going, praying, and giving to missions.

And, at the end of our time together, I will present each child with a badge for participation in the day’s events.

To participate, leaders need to register their group so we will know how many children and leaders to expect. Find out more about WMU’s Annual Meeting or email me with your questions about this event.

I look forward to meeting you and your children’s missions group in St. Louis!
