Without support of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Kentucky Baptists Scott & Joyce Pittman could not reach Brazilians with the Gospel. Check out this video about how they're working to reach the millions of Sao Paulo residents with the love of Christ.
Who is Lottie?
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.
"Why should we not, do something that will prove that we are really in earnest in claiming to be followers of him who, though he was rich, for our sake became poor?"
Lottie Moon, Sept. 15, 1887, Tungchow

THE LETTER THAT STARTED IT ALL
The following letter, written by Lottie Moon on Sept. 15, 1887, was printed in the Foreign Mission Journal in December of that year. It is credited with providing the impetus for the creation of a Southern Baptist offering to support international missions, which later became the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions.
