What does your Lottie Moon Christmas Offering do?
While visiting John and Wanne Dina in Quelimane, Mozambique, I asked, “What does the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering do for you?”
“Everything!” John exclaimed. “The house you are staying in was bought with Lottie Moon funds. The truck we use to go out to the villages to preach and teach was purchased with Lottie Moon funds. The equipment used to show the Jesus film in places where the gospel has not yet been heard was provided by Lottie Moon funds. Everything we do here is made possible by the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.”
