Lottie Moon wasn’t always a dedicated Christian lady. When she was young, her father passed away, and she became a rebel against God; she didn’t like to go church. Until one day, when a friend invited her to attend a missionary meeting, and hear the gospel that transform lives. That night she found out how ugly she was spiritually and the necessity to confess her sins. She did, and her life was very different, and she decided to become a missionary. She was very smart and finished her education with a masters degree. Two years after, she started her journey to China, she arrived to this country on this day. She worked in Tonchow, Northern China.
The Chinese did not respond well to her message at the beginning. She prepared cookies to break walls, but people there didn’t trust her, thinking that those cookies were poisoned. Very slowly, they finally trusted her and in her message and in her Lord.
She spent 40 years in this mission field, with just three times of furloughs.
She was so devoted to her missionary life that she refused to eat when a severe famine attacked China. She became very ill and people encouraged her to go to America for healing time, but she died in the boat before arriving home, on December 24th.
"If I had a thousand lives, I would give them all for the women of China," said Lottie Moon. She may not have given a thousand imaginary lives for China but she gave the one she had.
In His service.
