I have recently returned from an arduous period of travel, visiting many state convention and associational annual meetings and fall church events. In many of those meetings, I heard mention of the upcoming emphasis upon international missions during the Christmas season. I have heard our personnel from the International Mission Board give reports, calling Southern Baptists to rise to the challenge of our $175 million Lottie Moon Christmas Offering goal.

Affirmation of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

I could not get the recent short-falls of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering off my mind. I got up and wrote what you are now reading. It is my prayer that God would use our church along with the fellowships of the Southern Baptist Convention to touch the unreached people groups of our world, especially those that are unengaged by anyone for the Gospel.
