“Things don’t matter, but people do.”
That was a quote often cited by martyred international missionary Dr. Martha Myers. She lived out sacrificially the fact that people really do matter. The things of this world — no — they don’t really matter; they’re temporal.
She looked at the eternal. Every time she touched a life — Dr. Myers as she was so often called — knew that people really did matter.
Today, we are standing upon the shoulders of two spiritual giants: Dr. Martha Myers and also Kathryn Mallory who was an iconic figure, both in the life of both Alabama Baptists and Southern Baptists.
Our new state missions offering is named the Myers-Mallory State Missions Offering. More information is available online at Myers-Mallory.org.
You will be hearing more in the days to come, but please save the dates of September 11-18 to
participate in the inaugural Week of Prayer for State Missions. It’s a time when many Alabama Baptists will immerse ourselves in prayer for the emphases of the Myers-Mallory State Missions Offering.
Remember: “Things don’t really matter, but people do.”
