Mei-Lyn* was snared in the sex trade for years until a Christian worker helped her escape. She is now active in a house church and sings in the choir. Last summer, while on mission to Western China, she led youth camps for Muslim students, and five people followed Christ. She plans to do the same work next summer. Your gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO) funded the ministry that freed Mei-Lyn from sex slavery, introduced her to Christ, and taught her marketable skills.
Lottie Moon – the namesake of Southern Baptists’ international missions offering – has become a legend. But in her time, Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today’s missionaries. She labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering® was established in 1888 to support Southern Baptist international missions efforts. Your generosity enables missionaries to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God. Partner with IMB by giving to LMCO today!
More than 3,500 IMB missionaries serve among the nations, sent by Southern Baptist churches to take the gospel to those who have never heard. The need is urgent as just over 7,000 people groups are still unreached. Given our global reality, we don’t have time to stay stagnant or shrink back. The gospel is too good, and our God is too great. That is why IMB and Southern Baptist churches are partnering to empower missionary teams to evangelize, disciple and multiply healthy churches across the globe. Together, we will work to fulfill God’s vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe, and nation worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ.
Because you gave to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®, IMB missionaries baptized 86,587 people and planted 18,380 new churches around the world. The LMCO national goal this year is $185 million. Your partnership will send and empower an ever-increasing, Christ-exalting force of men and women to pursue the nations for the glory of his name. Give to LMCO today!
