Friendship Christmas tree reflects church’s Lottie Moon goal

The members of Friendship Baptist Church in Pauline combined their prayer mission and their Lottie Moon Christmas Offering in a unique way, and used the church Christmas tree to chart the progress of their goal. Each ornament represented $100 of Lottie Moon gifts received, and in honor of the church’s prayer mission — the Tigre Quichua people of Peru, whose national flag includes a llama — llama ornaments were made to represent every $1,000 donated. The tree had a total of 67 ornaments and six llamas, representing a total Lottie Moon Offering of $6,734.
