Day 1


Mary Hill Davis came to Texas as a small child in 1870. At age 20 she married F.S.Davis, a physician. They had one son, Raymond, also a physician and surgeon. Mary was president of WMU from 1906 until 1931. She had a heart for missions and for people, which was reflected in everything she did. She encouraged women to give and pray for missions, care for retired pastors, care for orphans and give money to support schools in Texas, as well as China. She saw Texas was a vast mission field, and that immigrants needed to know Jesus just a much as citizens. Year after year she encouraged women to serve, give and pray, which led to the establishment of State Missions Week in September 1910. Because of her remarkable leadership, in 1935 the offering for state missions was named the Mary Hill Davis Offering. Thank the Lord for the example of the life of Mary Hill Davis and for the vision of the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions to reach Texas for Christ.
