LMCO – The Cost of Keeping Missionaries on the Field

LMCO – The Cost of Keeping Missionaries on the Field We all know that everything is getting more expensive; Food, Education, Health Care, Lodging, etc.  And that is not just here in the United States.  Missionaries throughout the world also experience higher costs.  The International Mission Board (IMB) has listed some examples of costs for keeping missionaries on the field.  These are just some examples: $6 – Pays for a one-mile taxi ride in Tokyo $25 – Supplies one tank…

Lottie Moon Prayer Focus – Day 6

Praise God for the offering that our Rocky Creek family has given so far, our total at this point is $19,641.  That is a good start, but far from what our Rocky Creek family has given in previous years.  We will continue to collect until December 31.

LMCO – Even International Missionaries Give To Lottie Moon

In 2014, Rocky Creek sent a team to Senegal to host the Western Gateway Conference, a retreat for missionaries serving throughout West Africa.  Every missionary family that came to the conference came prepared with money they had set aside through the year for Lottie Moon.  Our team had brought dozens of gift baskets for children, adults, and families for a very special Lottie Moon Auction. The missionaries had a blast bidding on the different baskets and they all went home…

LMCO – This Is Living

Our lives are not intended to be simple, selfish or separated from the lost and dying world.  God has called each of us to GO and share the Good News.  While every person may not be able to go overseas to share the Gospel, every person can certainly share what God has done in their own lives with the people God has placed around them as well as help to supply resources for those sharing the Gospel in some of…

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

In 1888 Southern Baptist churches were introduced to a new offering for international missions, named after a woman called Lottie Moon.  She had tirelessly and selflessly given her life not just to share the Gospel with the people in China, but especially with her  relentless appeal to American churches to send and support more missionary workers in China. “Why should we not…do something that will prove that we are really in earnest in claiming to be followers of Him who,…
