It was a privilege for the members of our Mariachi San Pablo to be able to contribute music and entertainment at the National Convention of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League. In addition to providing an hour-long concert for 3,000+ people, the mariachi shared music in the exhibit hall and during the closing worship service. Pastor Stephen Heimer, trumpeter and singer in Mariachi San Pablo, also accompanied hymn singing and assisted in communion distribution in the opening worship service.
The mariachi concert’s theme matched the convention theme, “Jesus Christ Above All” with sets of music that communicated Christ to be:
King of Kings
King of Creation
King of Love
King of Life
As part of the concert, the LWML invited the ensemble to share some information about YLM. Convention participants gathered school supplies and hygiene supplies that were transported to the YLM campus during the convention.
