Sunday, March 3, 2019. First Baptist Church, Burlington, Kansas. Pastor Jay Hale. Annie Armstrong was a passionate advocate of mission work in North America. The North American mission field is wide open. Most churches could not afford to support a missionary to spread the gospel in North America, but by cooperating together, churches can help fund missionaries to take the gospel to the people in North America. In Mark 16:15 we read where Jesus told the disciples to go into the world and preach the gospel. This offering helps us accomplish that command.
