Many North American cities could reasonably be called pre-Christian. Even in the traditional “Bible Belt” Christianity is
being pushed to the margins. In the midst of this, God is bringing the nations to our shores and offering
unprecedented opportunities for the gospel.

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.
