Lottie Moon

Our church goal for Christmas Offering 2013 was $1,000¦ we surpassed that goal!
Each year during the Christmas season we take a special offering honoring Lottie Moon, this offering is then given to the Southern Baptist International Mission Board for their continued work in Internation Missions.
 
CHARLOTTE "Lottie" DIGGES MOON ( 1840 - 1912 )
Lottie Moon-the namesake of the international missions offering-has become something of a legend. But in her time Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today's missionaries. She was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus.
When she set sail for China, Lottie was 32 years old. She had turned down a marriage proposal and left her job, home and family to follow God's lead. Her path wasn't typical for an educated woman from a wealthy Southern family. But Lottie did not serve a typical God. He had gripped her with the Chinese peoples' need for a Savior. 2
