Missionary to China
Have you received Christ as your Lord and Saviour?
Plan of Salvation _________________
Tell others about Jesus like Gladys Aylward did:
Though we are not all called to be Overseas Missionaries like Gladys Aylward, all we who are Christians are called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

"God Was Leading Her to China and No Man Would Stop Her."
Her greatest feat is achieved during the Japanese invasion of China when she leads one hundred homeless children to safety over the mountains across enemy-held terrain. _________________
Enduring Threats On Her Life and the Perils of War
After reading a magazine article about China, Gladys Aylward couldn't put the idea out of her mind. But when the China Inland Mission rejected her as a missionary, Aylward found her own way there in 1932, trusting God with every step.
Her simple dependence on God would be a recurring theme during her amazing tenure in China, a mission which lasted, with one ten-year interruption during the Communist takeover, until her death in 1970. Enduring threats on her life and the perils of war and disease, Aylward lived an adventure for Jesus Christ that is one of the great missionary stories of the twentieth century.
An Adventure for Jesus Christ
Like Corrie ten Boom, Gladys Aylward praised God that, in her own words, "one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."
