Gladys Aylward aspired to be a missionary to the people of China. As a young woman, she enrolled in missionary training school, but was devastated when she was told by the school director that she was not good enough to be a missionary. Perhaps, he told her, she should be a maid in China instead. Glady was determined to make a way, and through her through her faith, she became a missionary, reaching many for Christ.
Thank you, YWAM Publishing! FTC Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
This book is very inspirational and shows a very strong role model for young women in particular. I liked that it showed how strong Gladys Aylward was in striving for her God-given vision. She believed in her heart that she had to go to China, and she didn’t give up, even after being told by someone in authority that she wasn’t good enough. Gladys believed that she had a mission to go tell people about God, and the obstacles didn’t stop her. Her faith pushed her to keep going, and that can inspire any Christian. This book is highly recommended!
