An autobiography/biography of a woman who put her faith solely in God and let Him lead. She traveled to China with no support and ten dollars in her pocket. God provided and also brought many opportunities for her to witness where few to none had before. Her life is a beautiful picture of a believer striving to trust and serve God and of the Lord's grace and provision.
Amazing story of a lady who pursued what God called her to despite opposition. She travelled unsupported to China, by herself...was arrested in Russia, and finally made it to China and that was just the beginning.
I couldn't put this book down. Gladys Aylward left the comforts of England for a place she'd never been, China. She knew they needed to hear about Jesus and she obeyed. Her story challenges me that obedience can mean great risk. And obedience means seeing God's marvelous hand at work!
