Christian missionary. Lottie Moon endured the hardships of starvation, plague and war as one of the first unmarried, female missionaries of the modern era. She spoke multiple languages. The Southern Baptist Board sent her to China to serve as a missionary. There, she gave away her money and food to hungry children. She weighed less than 50 pounds when she died due to malnurishment when she was 72 years old. Several faiths recognize her good works. 'The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering' is a special missionary fund named in her honor. The effort has raised over $1.5 billion for missionaries around the world. (bio by: Someone Who Cares...)
