Dear Church Leader:
Kendra* never ventured outside of St. Louis. A victim of human trafficking, her life to this point was little more than one harrowing experience after another. So the trip to Branson to see “Samson” at Sight and Sound Theatre was a game changer.
At every stop – the theater, a restaurant, a hotel – she experienced a more welcoming world and the love of caring Christians, thanks to Human Trafficking Rescue, a ministry of the Missouri Baptist Children’s Home.
The Children’s Home is one of 16 ministries your church supports through its generous gifts to the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO). Thanks to you, Kendra’s life will never be the same – and neither will the lives of countless others.
Together, through MMO, Missouri Baptists support Christian foster care, start new churches, provide disaster relief, host age-level retreats for Christian young people, and fund other projects that transform lives and communities with the gospel.
The theme of this year’s offering is drawn from 2 Corinthians 9:7 – “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful (Greek: hilaros) giver.”
Last year, 794 Missouri Baptist churches supported MMO, and we are hoping that number tops 900 this year. If your church hasn’t been receiving an MMO offering, please review the resources in this promotional packet and bless your people with an opportunity to give cheerfully to the Lord’s work across our state.
All materials on these webpages are provided free of charge – whether you download or order them from the MBC. Our goal this year is $715,000. You can make a difference. We are trusting God to provide – and to receive the glory as a result of your church’s faithful, hilarious gift of support through MMO.
