Dear Church Leader,

At this very moment, specialists are helping military veterans cope with post-traumatic stress disorder at our Baptist Home in Smithville – and even planting a church on campus that ministers to those who have faithfully served our country. The Missouri Baptist Children’s Home is helping “Lisa,” a 13-year-old, overcome the trauma of human trafficking through the ministry of Freedom 43:19. And more than 100 college students are serving in Missouri Baptist churches as they answer God’s call to missions.

All of this – and much more – is possible only because your church members give faithfully to the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO). Our annual state missions offering supports more than two dozen ministries. These include Christian foster care, disaster relief, church revitalization, and other projects that help transform lives and communities with the gospel.

The theme of this year’s offering is taken from Romans 12:10. Near the end of this letter, Paul instructs his readers in Christian ethics, urging them to love without hypocrisy, detest evil, and cling to what is good. He continues, “Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Take the lead in honoring one another.”

What a privilege Missouri Baptists have to honor one another by contributing to God’s work of grace in the hearts of people across our state.

Last year, 744 Missouri Baptist churches supported MMO and gave an all-time record amount. We are asking the Lord for even more MBC churches to catch the vision of what a state missions offering can contribute to His work in our communities. 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 willingly to the Lord’s work across our state.

All materials in this packet are provided free of charge – whether you download or order them from the MBC. Our goal this year is $740,000. You can make a difference. We are trusting God to provide – and to receive the glory as a result of your church’s gift of support through MMO.
