WMU (Women's Missionary Union)
Founded in 1888, Woman's Missionary Union is an auxiliary of the Southern Baptist Convention that seeks to equip adults, youth, children and preschoolers with missions education to become radically involved in the mission of God. Headquartered in Birmingham, Ala., WMU is a nonprofit organization that offers an array of missions resources including conferences, ministry ideas and models, volunteer opportunities, curriculum for age-level organizations, leadership training, books and more.
Since its founding the WMU has become the largest Protestant organization for women in the world, with a membership of approximately 1 million. WMU also was the first and remains the largest body of organized laity in the Southern Baptist Convention.
The WMU help organize and raise funds for missions in our local community, the United States and International Countries. These missions include the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Operation Christmas Child, The Baptist Children's Home of NC and many other community outreach programs...

Each year, we honor the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong (1850-1938) when we give to the annual offering for home missions named after her. As a tireless servant of God and a contagious advocate and supporter of mission efforts throughout the world, Annie Armstrong led women to unite in mission endeavors that ultimately led to the formation of Womans Missionary Union, for which she served as the first corresponding secretary.
Annie believed in Christ with all her heart, but it was her hands that expressed that belief in tangible ways. She spent a great amount of time typing and handwriting letters in support of missions. Many of these letters were quite lengthy and all were filled with conviction that more could and should be done in our mission efforts.
In 1893 alone, she wrote almost 18,000 letters! Annie also never hesitated to use her hands to reach out to hug a child or distribute food and clothing and the Word of God to those in need. Her hands held her own Bible as she studied to know how best to share Gods love with others. And, most important, Annie was a woman of prayer, folding her hands in prayer to intercede for the missionaries and for those they were helping discover Christ.
Annie rallied churches to give more, pray more, and do more for reaching people for Christ. As we continue to unite to make her vision a reality in North America today, we can be confident that her legacy will also be ours.
Have you ever wondered who is Lottie Moon? When she set sail for China, Lottie was 32 years old. She had turned down a marriage proposal and left her job, home and family to follow Gods lead. Her path wasnt typical for an educated woman from a wealthy Southern family. But Lottie did not serve a typical God. He had gripped her with the Chinese peoples need for a Savior.
For 39 years Lottie labored, chiefly in Tengchow and Pingtu. People feared and rejected her, but she refused to leave. The aroma of fresh-baked cookies drew people to her house. She adopted traditional Chinese dress, and she learned Chinas language and customs. Lottie didnt just serve the people of China; she identified with them. Many eventually accepted her. And some accepted her Savior. To learn more about Lottie Moon please visit the Southern Baptist Convention's website at http://ime.imb.org/lottiemoon/default.asp
Lottie Moon - Born December 12, 1840 and passed into eternal life on December 24, 1912.
She was a heroine for today-a woman passionate about a lost world, a woman who didn't hesitate to speak her mind. Please give faithfully to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering and help spread the Gospel into all the world.
