Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

Impact on AIDS

Troy Lewis has seen death. He’s also seen lives transformed physically and spiritually in Zambia as an IMB missionary. Troy and his wife, Tracey, were appointed to Zambia with their two boys in 2001.

Troy’s primary focus involves ministering to those impacted by the AIDS crisis. More than 5,500 people die every day from this disease in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Every day people in Zambia are hearing about Jesus Christ, as well—people like Collins. A former street kid, Collins once huffed “petro” and lived in a graveyard. Through local believers and Southern Baptist initiatives, such as True Love Waits, Collins gave his life to Christ. He turned away from a worldly lifestyle that leads many young people to become infected with AIDS.

“I just want to say to Southern Baptists ‘thank you’ for your giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering,” Troy says. It costs Troy about $120 a day to live and minister in Zambia. “Every life that is touched, every life that is saved, every orphan child that is educated is because of the people back home who are giving through this offering.”

How many days will you support a missionary like Troy who is making a difference for this earth and for eternity?
