Gladys Aylward (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

514ybakasyl-_sx310_bo1204203200_Without formal education or a missionary organization to back her, Gladys raised her own finances for the overland trip that would bring her to the country and people that God had etched so deeply on her heart… China! What follows is an amazing adventure of faith and determination. Gladys Aylward, a housemaid from England, dared to trust God in the face of dire and seemingly hopeless circumstances. Her life is one of the truly great missionary stories of our era.

One thought on “Gladys Aylward (Christian Heroes: Then & Now)

  1. Gladys Aylward gives me hope for myself. Not only are we both vertically challenged women, we are both 28 (age she was at in chapter one), and we are both not gifted other than with the gospel! I am challenged by how she simply does whatever is needed to serve God, even cleaning up after mules in a foreign land where she risked her life to arrive in and where she wanted to be a missionary who proclaimed the good news to the Chinese. She gave her entire life and body to serve God, forgoing her own preferences and desires. Yet she must have “been one of the happiest women that have ever stepped this earth.”
