The Lottie Moon International Missions Offering is named after Lottie Moon a missionary to China and a legend to the International Mission Board.  Lottie was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus.  She wrote numerous letters home, urging Southern Baptists to greater missions involvement and support.  One of those letters triggered Southern Baptists' first Christmas offering for international missions - enough to send three new missionaries to China.  Materials are ordered at our online store.  Order Materials.
