Who/What is it?

  Who/What is it?  

Lottie Moonthe 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.

Well over 100 years ago, a single missionary named Lottie Moon, while serving in China, began writing letters challenging the American church to send and support more workers to go there. After her death on the field, her challenge was heeded in the formalization of an offering in her name. Even if you’re not a Southern Baptist who has given to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, her life is a reminder of why we must give to send and support missionaries serving among unreached peoples in unreached places.

DELMAR MISSION OFFERING.  Benny Delmar started Southern Baptist work in Wyoming in 1951, Montana in 1953 and North Dakota, also in 1953. That’s the way he had been reared. He was an “oil patch kid,” and at every new place his family moved to, his mother would start a Sunday School.

For more than 60 years, O.R. (Benny) Delmar started Southern Baptist churches, more than 140 of them in the Northern Plains plus more in Oklahoma, Arizona and Canada.
