Missionaries' No. 1 need is for prayer support!
Focused, continuous prayers not only for themselves but for the people to whom they bring the love of Christ.
Missions leaders help churches know how to pray strategically, why to give sacrificially and how to come alongside missionaries to reach the lost.
The purpose of this offering is to support the efforts of the North American Mission Board's Send North America strategy, as missionaries and church planters push back lostness in the United States and Canada.

The 2018 Week of Prayer for Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is:
March 4-11, 2018
Every church promotes their international offering differently.
- What if we don't promote the offering during the week suggested? That's okay!
- What if we pick up a large missions offering only once a year? Way to Go!
Don't Stress. You are able to use week of prayer materials any time through out the year.
