The Lottie Moon Christmas offering remains the lifeline of international missions. As always, 100 percent of the offering goes to the
international missions budget. This pays for the missionaries’ language studies, travel and other items to make their ministry possible.
It also pays for more basic needs…it pays their salaries, food, rent, clothing, and helps put their children through school. Your
offering does all these things so the missionaries will not have to work one or more extra jobs just to survive. It preserves their
calling by allowing them to devote themselves full time to their individual ministries.
You may order offering promotion materials using this form
AFTER you have received and reviewed your MBCB-WMU sample packet of LMCO items (early
October). Your state WMU office distributes posters, prayer guides, and envelopes from mid-October through December. Your
church can choose how and when to promoto LMCO, but the suggested Week of Prayer is on the event calendar each year.
