Starting this Thursday – and every Thursday through the first part of the month of December – I’m gonna Throw This Out There: A WHOLE LOTTA LOTTIE!
Who is Lottie?
Why does Lottie need so much money?
What if we don’t give to Lottie?
Why is her name Lottie?
Pastor – are you pocketing some from Lottie? What’s the deal here?
I’m gonna talk a whole LOTTA about LOTTIE.
Today, let me simply whet your appetite by copying this info from the IMB site:
“Lottie Moon – the namesake of the international missions offering – has become something of a legend to us. But in her time Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today’s missionaries. She was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus.
Why was the offering named for this early missionary?
Throughout her career, Lottie Moon wrote numerous letters home, urging Southern Baptists to greater missions involvement and support. One of those letters triggered Southern Baptists’ first Christmas offering for international missions – enough to send three new missionaries to China.”
I look forward to Throwing Out There some information about Lottie and her SUPER IMPORTANT offering.
Before I sign off – let me Throw This Out There – who can find out how tall Lottie was?
