NOOK Winner in Pipestone

"I was so surprised; I never win anything!" Sheri Cox, winner of our LCEF Minnesota South District NOOK is pictured above. Cox is looking forward to learning how to use the new NOOK which also came with a giftcard to download the New Testament.

"It was truly a joy to meet Sheri and have the opportunity to see her home congregation, Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Pipestone, MN," said LCEF Director of Communication & Marketing Maria Hendrickson. Our Saviour's Pastor Jon Olson congratulated Sheri and commented on how much he knows she'll enjoy the gift given that she is such an avid reader.

Cox won the NOOK via a drawing at the Lutheran Church Extension Fund booth in June at the 2012 MNS District LWML Convention in Mankato where more than 300 attended. LCEF is a ministry of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and supports its members and leaders.
