In Honor of Lottie

She sailed across the sea
To a land so far away.
She left behind her expected life,
When she heard what God had to say.

Of a woman named Lottie Moon.

And would arrive in China soon.

Here are 7 fun and fresh ideas you may want to consider as you plan to promote and fundraise for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering:
