For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.

~2 Corinthians 4:6~


How do your gifts make a difference?

Gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering are used to train and resource missionaries in church planting and compassion ministries. Gifts are also used to create evangelism resources. New churches are being planted, hurts are being healed and lives are being transformed by the gospel because you give.

Pray for those who pack “Shoeboxes” and those who contribute items to be packed. Pray for other mission projects in our churches whether they are local, in our country, or international. Thank God for those who serve as our representatives in all these area.

Many mission projects have hands-on ways you can be a part of their ministry to others, Those who are called should go. Others, should help to help meet their needs. We can all be a part of missions!


Thanks to all of you who pass on information about this daily posting. I regularly meet people who say “Did you say Anna Lee? I read what you write every morning.” Thank you for sharing!
