Lottie Moon’s plain tea cake recipe From the Web site for Woman’s Missionary Union (www.wmu.com):

As a way to earn the trust of the people and show her goodwill, Lottie Moon made tea cakes for the children in her village in China. Once the children ate the cookies, they would take Lottie to their homes where she would share the gospel with their mothers. The children began calling Lottie “the cookie lady” instead of “foreign devil.”

Plain Tea Cake
(As made by Lottie Moon)
Three teacups of sugar
One teacup of butter
One teacup of sour milk
Four pints flour
Three eggs, well beaten
Half a teaspoon of soda
Flavor to taste, roll thin, bake in a quick oven.

Adapted recipe:
2 cups flour
½ cup butter
1 heaping cup of sugar
1 well-beaten egg
1 tablespoon cream

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and mix well. Add the flour and cream. Dust a board with flour. Roll the dough very thin. Cut cookies with a round cookie cutter. Place on a buttered or nonstick cookie sheet. Bake at 475 degrees for about 5 minutes.

2010 International Week of Prayer is

2010 Focus: Thailand
Imagine living in a nation where 1 person in 100 knows Christ. That nation is Thailand. Yet there is hope and opportunity, even in a land of great spiritual need. Come with us to the exotic country of Thailand, a tropical land bordered by Burma, Laos, Cambodia, and Malaysia in Southeast Asia. This ancient constitutional monarchy was never colonized by Europeans but is now faced with internal political strife. With a population of almost 66 million, Buddhism is the predominant religion (94.6%) followed by Islam (4.6%) and Christianity (0.7%), enormous challenges exist that our Southern Baptist workers must overcome as they spread the gospel. Help your church learn more about Thailand, and how to support the work there, by participating in the International Mission Study this year.

May the peoples praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise you  (Psalm 67:3, NIV).

It’s a beautiful vision: People who speak Kirmanjki and Kabyle, Thai and Tatar, and use sign language in Czech—all knowing and praising God. It’s a vision that comes closer to being realized every year as Christians seek unreached people groups to tell them the story of Jesus.

Are we there yet? Not yet.

But for the first time in history, we can identify the people groups that remain untouched by the Gospel. We can get there in our generation! But that last part of the journey may be the hardest. It will take all of us—our churches, our missionaries, our national partners, our Great Commission partners.

Southern Baptists must continue to increase their giving to support missionaries through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®. They must pray strategically. And they must own the Great Commission as never before to see that all peoples know Him.
