This year for the Monday missionary story,  we will take a hike to India. We'll start out first in the United Kingdom spend a short time there then devote the rest of our time touring India with Amy Carmichael.

Amy was born December 16, 1867 in the United Kingdom. Around age twenty-nine she left for India to become a missionary. She served for fifty-five years without a furlough (a vacation back home).

Amy was best know for rescuing Indian children from terrible situations. She started an orphanage to help care for the needy little ones and to share God's love with them.

Every Monday the missionary story will continue on this site.

For the last three years we traveled with Hudson Taylor to China and read about the amazing things God did there. I'll give you a little spoiler. At one of the meetings in England, Hudson spoke to a large crowd. Young Amy Carmichael went tot he meeting and heard about the need for missionaries. 

Each story is told as if the person were speaking to you, telling you what they see and feel. The idea is to help readers understand these events happened to real people any truly give the glory to God. So while the events are true, other aspects will be added, like weather, feelings, tastes, and more to bring the events to life.

So join us next Monday when Amy's mom tells the story of her three-year-olds greatest desire.
