The North American Mission Board states that 269 million people in North America do not know Jesus Christ. America needs to see us as His children working together for His Kingdom. Thanks for bringing the Annie Armstrong missions effort and offering to the attention of your people.
The theme for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions this year is “On Mission: Here and Now”! 1 John 3:18 states, “We must not love with word or speech but with truth and action.” The Annie Armstrong Missions Offering emphasis is not just an opportunity to give our money, but an even greater opportunity to impact our neighborhoods and communities with the wonderful news of God’s involvement in our lives. All of us are painfully aware of the lost condition of people with whom we bump shoulders every day. These lost people are our neighbors - people right down the street from our houses. Working together we can be difference-makers in sharing the Gospel across our land.
The suggested dates for this emphasis are March 4-11, 2018. During this Week of Prayer for North American Missions, consider how you can make a Kingdom impact by praying fervently, giving sacrificially, and going intentionally to work alongside our Southern Baptist missionaries to do our part in sharing God’s powerful message of hope and forgiveness.
