Annie Armstrong was strong willed, to say the least. When the founder and head of the Woman’s Missionary Union heard that Southern Baptist missionary Lottie Moon was suffering in China for lack of financial support, she started a letter writing campaign urging churches to pass the plate. One year she wrote 18,000 letters, pounding them out on a manual typewriter.
So renown was her tenacity for the cause that a similar offering for missions in the U.S. was eventually renamed for her. Today it’s the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions.
The Week of Prayer is March 5-12. The 2023 goal is $70 million to support special missions of the North American Mission Board. To learn more about the missionaries, download additional resources, and to give online, go to AnnieArmstrong.com.
