Lottie Moon was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus. Throughout her career, Lottie wrote numerous letters, urging Southern Baptists to greater support of missions. One of those letters triggered Southern Baptists' first Christmas offering for International Missions-eoungh to send 3 new missionaries to China.
