CHARLOTTE "Lottie" DIGGES MOON ( 1840 - 1912 )Lottie Moonthe namesake of the international missions offeringhas become something of a legend. But in her time Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like todays missionaries. She was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus. 1
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. 2
