This year’s Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and Week of Prayer for International Missions downloadable resources are available now on the International Mission Board’s website. This year’s Week of Prayer is Dec. 4–11.
In addition to stories, full-color photos and videos, IMB is offering a global impact guide, social media graphics, presentation graphics, kids’ resources, goal posters and a bulletin insert. Resources are also available in Spanish, Korean and Chinese.
These resources are designed to invite Southern Baptists and their churches to actively participate in the task of praying for missionaries and to raise awareness of God’s work around the world. The stories and other materials are also geared to help unite individuals and churches in meeting this year’s $196 million LMCO goal.
IMB President Paul Chitwood said he believes the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering can help Southern Baptists remain on task to address one problem that rises above every problem — lostness.
157,690 people dying daily without Christ
There are 157,690 people dying daily without Christ, he added, and more than 3,000 people groups remain unengaged. He noted the convention exists for the purpose of praying, giving, going and sending, together.
“Together, we get to share the good news of Jesus with people and places where that news has never been heard. Together, we send, sustain and support missionaries to be steadfastly present around the globe,” Chitwood said. “We must reach the nations, together.”
To hear Chitwood, senior leadership and missionaries share more about the 2023 vision, go to imb.org/presidents-call to secure a spot in the exclusive video call (registration required) on Nov. 4 at 3:30pm EDT.
