WHO IS ANNIE ARMSTRONG?
Annie Armstrong was born in 1850 in Baltimore, Maryland. Converted as a young woman in 1870, she was drawn to mission work and joined her mother in zealous Christian service. While her opportunities were limited as a woman, she was dedicated to Christ and led a life of service and leadership. She organized women to pray, give, and meet needs. As the first executive director of Woman's Missionary Union, Annie challenged pastors and churches to action and rallied vital support for missionaries. Her life of missions work included leading the formation of missions organizations for children, raising support for missionaries to Italian and Jewish immigrants, initiating fundraising "brick cards" to build churches in Cuba, gaining support for the first Black female missionaries with Home Mission Board (now NAMB), and advocating for Native Americans and impoverished mountain people. In 1934, because of her trailblazing and visionary leadership, the offering started in 1895 to support the work of the Home Mission Board was renamed in her honor to encourage more people to follow her sacrificial example. Today more than $2 Billion has been donated by Southern Baptist churches and individuals through this offering.
