Way to go Lottie!!

What a privilege it is to thank Southern Baptists for their giving to the 2006 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. The goal of $150 million was surpassed by almost $200,000! How exciting it is to be a part of group of people who not only say they believe in reaching the world for Christ... but are willing to give sacrificially to help see it happen. How does this affect who we are as an organization?

  • The offering supports the work of more than 5,100 missionaries across the globe. This year's gift is expected to have a notable impact on the number of personnel being sent to the field. Board leaders anticipate sending 200 extra missionaries over the next two years, in additional to the normal appointment numbers.

  • More unreached people groups will have access to the Gospel, more people will be won and baptized, more churches planted and leaders discipled and trained around the world because of such a generous level of giving.

Personally, it continues to provide us with a home to live in, a vehicle to drive, children's schooling, resources to purchase tracts & Bibles, and funds to travel to the unreached & hard to reach areas of the Philippines to see what needs to be done to bring to Gospel to those places.
