Women Who Impacted the World for Christ – The Dragon Lady

Lottie MoonFor much of my childhood, I thought there was one missionary…Charlotte (Lottie) Diggs Moon (1840-1912). Much later in my life I learned of her incredible impact in the country of China. Her words that follow highlight her love for the Chinese people: “If I had a thousand lives, I would give them all for the women of China.”

She used her knitting and sewing skills to interest Chinese women in the gospel. She worked tirelessly during her forty years in China and took only three furloughs. She actually died of starvation because she would not eat because the people that she was attempting to reach with the gospel did not have any food to eat.
