Annie Armstrong was unstoppable in her passion for missions.
Annie was born in Baltimore at a time when there was little opportunity for women. Yet, her devotion to Christ led her to a life of service and leadership. She organized women to pray, to give and to meet the needs around them. She challenged pastors and churches to action and rallied vital support for missionaries. Ultimately, Annie was recognized as a national Southern Baptist trailblazer for her visionary leadership that still inspires millions today.
The week of prayer for North American Missions
The Week of Prayer is annually observed by SBC churches to pray for missionaries, their ministries and their families. Prayer is the fuel for spiritually sustaining missionaries in places where the gospel is greatly needed, but often opposed.
The official date is the first Sunday in March through the second Sunday. Your church can choose this date or another time during the Easter season to participate.

Bobby and LaKeisha Williams have a simple goal—to meet the deep need of New Orleans with the even deeper love of Christ. Some buildings are still boarded up from Hurricane Katrina. The area around their church plant is predominantly African American and low-income.
