Lottie Moon was a southerner living in the 1800’s who at 32 years of age decided to become a missionary to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the people China. Having a deep burden in her heart for the people of this Asian nation, she adapted to Chinese customs and language and labored tirelessly in her service.
She wrote letters home testifying about the spiritual hunger of the Chinese people of her day. Her letters told of the needs of the Chinese people and her desire for more missionaries to take up the call to serve. Lottie Moon continues to inspire many to missionary service today. The International Missions Board site has published information describing Lottie Moon’s mission, vision and story along with facts, quotes and actual letters that she wrote from China.
