This weekend many churches across the Canadian National Baptist Convention will be collecting a special "Lottie Moon Christmas Offering". It is an offering to help missionaries across the world share true hope to a hurting world. Over 5500 International Missionaries are supported by this offering and they work in every conceivable field like evangelism, church planting, medicine, agriculture, community development, disaster relief, health education and tech support. Lottie Moon served for 39 years as a missionary to the people of China. She loved those around her as Christ had loved her and when a famine hit the country she gave her food away to the many starving around her. Her love and commitment to the Chinese people continues to be an example and an inspiration to us all. It is for this reason that giving to Lottie Moon Christmas Offering has become a tradition in our house that we look forward to every year. Check out this video on Lottie's story and how others have followed in her footsteps.
