One of my own childhood memories is that every Christmas our church celebrated the life and work of Lottie Moon, a southern Baptist missionary who served in China. Not only did she literally sacrifice her life so that others could hear about Jesus, but she was a voice to Southern Baptists about the need to support their workers in foreign lands. She died from starvation on Christmas Eve, and our churches honor her and other international missionaries each year by giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.
Our world seems much smaller now than it did 100 years ago. But, there are still more than 6,400 unreached people groups who still need to hear the message of Christ.
You can make a special memory for your children by helping them learn about the gift of giving this Christmas. Sure, there are a lot of organizations that help people around the world. But Southern Baptist missionaries are counting on you to give generously so they can continue the work God has called them to do. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering provides more than 50% of the support needed to keep our missionaries on the field.
Will you do something significant and memorable this Christmas? Give.
