One of the things we learn in Fourth Grade Sunday School is about missions and missionaries, as they tell people all over the world about the Good News of Jesus.  We learn that we can pray for missionaries, give to support mission causes, and perhaps even go as missionaries some day.  We usually study the book of Acts during the year as it tells about Paul's great adventures on his missionary journeys, and we also learn about present-day missionaries and how they minister in today's world.  We even help real live missionaries by praying for them and sending them notes and gifts of encouragement.

Lottie Moon

One major emphasis during the year is the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions at Christmas time.  It is named after a pioneer missionary to China, Charlotte Diggs (Lottie) Moon.  Click here or on her picture to read about her inspiring life.  You can also find  the cookie recipe for the tea cookies that Lottie Moon baked for the Chinese children--try them!
