Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

“But how inadequate our force!  Here is a province of 30 million souls and Southern Baptists can only send one man and three women to tell them the story of redeeming love.  Oh!  That my words could be as a trumpet call stirring the hearts of my brethren and sisters to pray, to labor, to give themselves to this people . . .” 

-Lottie Moon
