Every year we thank the Lord for all our missionaries who are serving outside the United States and we collect an offering for their support. It is called the Lottie Moon Offering in memory of the lady who starved herself to death because she gave away her own food to the starving people in China. More than 100 years ago, Lottie began serving God as His missionary to the Chinese people through the Southern Baptist Mission Board. Her sister was appointed as a missionary to Chine in 1872 and the next year Lottie was appointed. She was passionate about sharing the good news with girls and women there. Needing more Bible and Christian literature and more missionaries to help her, she began writing letters home to churches in the US asking for help. The response was slow at first but eventually churches responded in love and generosity,
Southern Baptists have collected this offering at Christmastime for years (since 1888)(since 1to support all our missionaries who are sharing the good news of God's love in many countries overseas.

After many years of having our church weekly information published on the front page of the weekly Baptist Record, we received notice this week that service will end.
You will continue to receive the weekly Baptist Record, which published every week except Christmas week and the week of the 4th of July. The company that handled the church pages for many of our Mississippi churches announced that they will no longer be printing the "Church Page" on front of the Baptist Record, beginning in 2020.
Your last two issues with the Alta Woods "Evangel" page on the front will be mailed December 12 and December 19.
I repeat, you will continue to receive your Baptist Record every week, except there will be no Alta Woods church page on front.
Several months ago now, Cindy Hamil, daughter of Billy and Peggy Roberts, put a fresh face on our Alta Woods Website. We think it is really nice. Thank you, Cindy, for a beautiful job!
