The Mission Tidings collection contains the periodical. It was the official magazine of the Women’s Missionary Society of the Lutheran Augustana Synod. Originally printed in both Swedish and English to appease both younger and older readers, it switched entirely to English in 1938. In 1949, the magazine was officially adopted by the Women’s Missionary Society of Augustana Lutheran Church. The magazine was advertised as “the link between your missions and you” and evolved into Lutheran Women’s World in 1958 with the change of the organization’s name to the Augustana Lutheran Church Women.
