November 23, 2004
JEFFERSON CITY – The Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering (MMO) through Nov. 19 has topped $600,000, up about $26,000 from last year.
Receipts were at $635,169.94. The total last year at this stage was $609,510.10.
“We’re still hopeful of being able to reach our goal of $750,000,” said David Waganer, Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC) associate executive director. “We urge the church treasurers to send in their checks by Dec. 27.”
Last year, $707,059 was raised. In 2002, the amount was $624,930.
Most of the MMO money being raised will go toward missions, church planting, compassion ministries and evangelism in the 2005 MBC budget.
