My Dearest Mothers’ Union Sisters and Brothers of the Province of the United States of America,
It is with great joy that I bring you greetings and congratulate you on the installation of your Executive on January 14, 2023 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Virginia. I am looking forward to sharing with you via Zoom on this auspicious occasion.
It is indeed heartening to know of the confidence that your membership has demonstrated in those you have re-elected to lead Mothers’ Union USA into the triennium of 2023-2025. They have followed the desires of our Heavenly Father and led your Province well over the last three years.
From Matthew 25:21 we read: His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.
I have had the privilege of working with and getting to know many of your Executive members over the last several years. I think of you all with love and gratitude; I am so very impressed with your dedication and great faith. It is inspiring to me!
My prayer for you is that each of your Executive members: Evelyn, Rita, Cathy, Rosanna, Eugenia D, Allison, Eugenia P, Hulda, Theodora, Elizabeth, Patience, Colleen, Sharon, Roseleen, Annie, Pauline, Evelyn D and Sylvia will continue to walk this journey with Him and support and lead your membership into this new triennium.

I end with a verse from Hebrews 10:22-25:
Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
May you continue to spur one another on, not giving up meeting together, sharing your love with one another, and encouraging each other as we move forward in these challenging times. You ARE making a difference. You ARE transforming lives. You ARE His hands and His feet. I look forward to sharing with you virtually if all goes well on January 14, 2023.
