2017 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering & Week of Prayer for International Missions

Your prayers transform lives.

When you pray for missionaries during the Week of Prayer for International Missions, you support their work of sharing the gospel and serving people.

Read through these stories and discover the ways God works through your prayers. You’ll also find specific ways to continue praying.

God also transforms lives through your gifts to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. One hundred percent of what you give goes to send missionaries and provide for the work He’s given them to do.

In-depth prayer stories are available at and in the December 2017 edition of Missions Mosaic from WMU. Call 1-800-968-7301.
