Jackie Rychel, President of Ministry In Mission, was granted the opportunity to speak to the entire national convention of the LWML, over 3000 attendees, in Mobile, Alabama during the weekend of June 22, 2019. Jackie thanked the LWML membership for the $100,000 grant that was granted at the 2017 convention, to construct the Jacmel Lutheran Home, an elder care home in Jacmel, Haiti. Jackie also gave a presentation, showing photographs of the construction, training of the Haitian elder care staff, and moving in of the residents. She also thanked all the missionaries who helped, prayed and donated to the elder care home. In particular the missionary team from Lutheran Family Service of Iowa for their partnership in evaluating prospective residents, staff training and their physical help in moving the new residents into the home.
