Another Special Life in Christ
These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by
The "Dragon Lady":
She stood 4 feet and 3 inches tall as an adult.
She had been a strong-willed child who climbed through a kitchen window to cook a forbidden
dinner while her mother was at church. As a schoolgirl, she told her best friend that she
would rather read Shakespeare than listen to a sermon. As a skeptical young lady, some knew
her by the nickname "Devil". But something happened and "religious thinking" was changed to
true Christian belief. She put away childish things and stood up to the Boxers in China in
1873. She accepted the hardships of rural China over a privileged lifestyle back in the USA.
To the Chinese children she loved, she became known as "the cookie lady". She eventually
starved to death giving what little food she had to the children...her supporting foreign
missions board had fallen on hard financial times. The first support offering in her name was
in 1888. She left a legacy of eloquently-written letters back home reflecting her passion for
telling the Chinese about Jesus. In 1918, the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board named
their annual churchwide offering toward foreign missions support after Charlotte Diggs
"Lottie" Moon (1840-1912). Southern Baptists have an annual Lottie Moon Christmas offering toward mission work.
