Book Review: "Gladys Aylward: Missionary to China" _________________

"A great piece of inspirational entertainment...Ingrid Bergman is...infinitely touching."

-Hollywood Reporter

Ingrid Bergman stars in this "spectacularly mounted, impressively acted and directed picture" (Variety) based on the true life story of Gladys Aylward, a modern day saint whose unquenchable passion to do good took her halfway around the world.

The Army Colonel, the Missionary. and the Mandarin

Inspired by her dream to be a missionary, an English parlor maid (Bergman) journeys to China and opens an inn for tired, hungry mule drivers crossing desolate mountain trails.  Gradually overcoming the natives hostility, she wins the heart of a Eurasian colonel (Curt Jurgens) and converts a powerful mandarin (Robert Donat) to Christianity.  But her greatest feat is achieved during the Japanese invasion of China when she leads one hundred homeless children to safety across enemy-held terrain.  

Powerful and poignant, this inspired film was adapted from Alan Burgess' bestseller The Small Woman.

Tell others about Jesus like Gladys Aylward did:

Though not all Christians are called to the ministry of a Missionary, we are all 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). _________________________________
