Befriend A Mission Program

Befriend A Mission Program

The Befriend A Mission (BAM) program encourages women of LWMS to remember the missions of WELS as well as the missionaries who serve them. Every two years, LWMS circuits are assigned specific world and home missions. The women of the circuits pray for those missions, write letters of encouragement, and sometimes send small gifts or care packages.
