National Offering Goal: $70 million
The 2016 Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® is named after Annie Armstrong who was the first corresponding secretary for the Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU). This annual offering celebrates Annie Armstrong’s life and legacy–one that centered around encouraging and stirring up others to support and be involved in missions endeavors. She wrote over 18,000 letters in one year to spur on giving towards missions. Her love to reach the lost did not start there. Annie Armstrong also worked diligently in her community to reach out to those around her through a kind word, giving a hug, or handing out clothing. The offering is given to missionaries serving in North American through the North American Mission Board (NAMB).
