A missionary’s look at Lottie Moon’s impact

EAST ASIA (BP) -- If you hear about something enough times, the topic can become mundane. That's what the name "Lottie Moon" became to me growing up in the church. I knew the name was associated with a Christmas offering, but I couldn't tell you who she was, why the offering was named after her, or why she was worthy of remembrance. I certainly didn't know the hardship she endured as she sought to relieve the suffering of others -- placing herself in harm's way to provide hope in the midst of a physical and spiritual famine. Now I realize that we need to know more about Lottie Moon, and we need to pass on her legacy through word and action.
