The President’s
Corner


He Is Risen!


Dear Sisters in Mission,



Spring just waltzed in early and unexpectedly in March. Trees started to
bud and bloom and daffodils popped up to magnify and glorify the wondrous
works of Our Lord! Just as we have just celebrated our ris
en Lord, the world we
live in has reawakened from its winter slumber. Rejoice and be glad!



Just like the Spring blooms, The Washington East District UMW is
budding. We recently welcomed Mt. Calvary (Charlotte Hall) into the District and
we are talking
with two other units who are interested in reorganizing. I thank
God for all of you and the work you do in mission in your communities and
beyond.



We want to extend our sincerest appreciation to the Pastors and local
units of Brooks and Queens Chapel UM
W for hosting Mission Team meetings this
year. The women of Brooks extended radical hospitality to us in January with a
full breakfast! Thank you, again, for a delicious meal! Likewise, the women of
Queens Chapel. Oh, my goodness!. What a campus they
have built there!
Absolutely beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality.



We are all looking forward to the Northeast Jurisdictional Quadrennial in
Hershey Park, PA June 14
-
16. If you have not done so, please get your
registrations in before the May 1 d
eadline. The Women’s Division has a number
of exciting mission activities planned for that weekend. A message from our
Conference President, Nancy Randers
-
Pehrson, is attached with additional
information about the activities and events planned for this w
eekend.



Congratulations to two of our biggest supporters on their new
appointments. Pastor Mandy Sayers of Journey By Faith (formerly Covenant
Point/Lakeside UMC) will become Pastor of a church in Gaithersburg effective
July 1. Pastor Mandy was the spe
aker last year at our Annual Prayer Breakfast.
We will miss you, Pastor Mandy! Congratulations also to Pastor Cindy Banks
(formerly of Indian Head UMC) who has been appointed Pastor of Shiloh UMC in
Bryans Road, MD effective in March. Thank you for all
your efforts in helping to
reorganize Indian Head UMW! And, thank you both for your support of the United
Methodist Women.


Blessings in Abundance!

Nona Colbert,

President




From
Communications


Greetings


Thanks to everyone for your response to our April 2012 Voice of the Tu
rtle.


As a result of your input, I was able to
submit the newsletter to our President for review. Ever wonder about the abbreviation of
A.S.A.P.?


There’s work
to do, deadlines to meet
and

you
have

no time to spare. God knows how stressful our life can b
e and want
s

to
ease our cares. That is why it is so important for all of us to
( ALWAYS SAY A

PRAYER).

Again, thanks for
allowing me to get the information to our units regard
ing

what is happening in the Washington East District and for
your diligence in s
ending your articles. If by chance
you notice that

something
is omitted

please feel free to give
me a call or email me.

From the Treasurer


Greetings!


I recently emailed/mailed to each local unit Treasur
er a 2011 Statement of Giving along with
verification of the 2012 Pledge to Mission from that unit. The statement was emailed to the President
if there was not an email address for the Treasurer in our 2011 directory. I appreciate that a number
of units
responded by submitting their 2012 pledge!


2011 Audit:
I hope that you have been able to complete an audit of your 2011 books. If you have,
please email/mail me a copy of the results. If you need more information about getting this done,
please contac
t me so I can send you a list of what should be reviewed and a form that can be
completed by the auditor.


NE Jurisdiction UMW Meeting Offering:

The Baltimore Washington Conference UMW has asked
each local unit to prayerfully consider giving an offering f
or the NEJ Meeting in Hershey, PA on
June 14
-
16. The offering should
not

be taken from funds that you will give to Pledge to Mission and
5
-
Star areas of giving. It could be a special offering from the members of your unit or perhaps a
special fundraising

effort. The offering will go to mission projects of the NEJ UMW.
I must
receive

your offering to me on or before
June 1

so that I can send a single check to the Conference
Treasurer.


As always, please contact me if you have any questions or would like
to meet sometime for training
without having to wait until November!

CELEBRATING WOMEN


Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress
passed Pub. L. 97
-
28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week
beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.”


Motivation and Encouragement

Julia Bettencourt


Women
need motivation and encouragement from their sisters in the Lord. Nothing is more
special than just a little touch that came unexpected. We never know what people are going
through and how just a tiny bit of encouragement can be like a shower of blessing f
alling right
on top of them.


"...a word spoken in due season, how good is it!" Proverbs 15:23




Here are a few things you might want to try.






Tell someone they are a blessing to you. Be specific.



Tell someone you are praying for them (and make sure to do s
o).



Send flowers to perk up someone’s day.



Write out a card to say hello. (be sure to mail it or hand deliver it)



Give a compliment to a different person every day for a week.



Share a special verse either by word of mouth or write it in a card or note.



Sen
d someone a note.



Praise someone out
-
loud for something they've accomplished.



Go out of your way to talk to someone and just "listen" to what's going on in their lives. Make
the conversation about them and not you.



Share your enthusiasm about something Go
d's done for you. (Be specific)



Share how the women's ministry in your church is a blessing to you.



Invite someone out or over to lunch or dinner.



Invite someone over for tea.



Invite a couple ladies over to watch a movie together.



Offer to take dinner to a

family that you know is in need or could use the help.



Give a sister in the Lord a hug.



Think of something uniquely you, and do it.

Susanna's Chronicles


Board President's Message




Dear Susanna Wesley House (SWH) Family,






2012 has started off with a bang! New leadership (I'm the newly
elected board president),
new partnership with the YWCA of Greater Baltimore, working on new plans for
renovating 607 and 609 with Episcopal Housing Corporation; and all the while, the
mission of SWH continues. I am so proud of the dedication, service and

commitment that
our faith partners, organizations, donors, committee and board members have towards
SWH. The Board and I thank our Executive Director, Janet R. Adams, for her
determination, steadfastness and commitment as SWH continues to grow.

SWH receive
s calls and emails weekly from various community sources asking for updates on the
happenings at the house. Many groups and organizations visit SWH and leave items from our 'Wish List';
volunteer services and resources towards the general upkeep of the hou
se; and volunteer to help with
special events focused around the children. I thank everyone for your ongoing financial support. SWH
would not be as stable as it is without your contributions. Special thanks to our grant and foundation donors
for their cont
inued support of our mission towards women and children. Remember our board members are
ready to visit your group or organization and discuss the mission of SWH.

I hope you enjoy our latest newsletter and I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions.

De
ar Ones,

For once you were in darkness, but now in the Lord you are light
.

Live as
children of light

for the fruit of the light is found in al
l that is good and
right and true. Try to find

out what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in
the unfruitful
works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is
shameful even to mention what such people do secretly; but everything
exposed by the light

becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Sleeper,
awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
