Amy Carmichael-Until We Meet Again

Amy Carmichael, A Life Lived For Christ

Amy Carmichael lived her life as a missionary. She originally thought God wanted her to work in Japan, but due to health issues, she ended up in India. 

She closed her eyes to go to sleep January 18, 1951 and never opened them again here on earth. She was eighty-three years old when she was take to be with Jesus.

I must admit, I wished I had know that Frank Houghton, from the China Inland Mission, the same mission Hudson Taylor started in China, had spent time with Amy Carmichael and wrote her biography. I read this in one of the last chapters. I'm not sure what additional stories can be found there:


Please note-these were the prices listed for 4/11/16.





I hope you have been inspired by her life. If you've missed any of the stories or would like to go back and read any, write "Amy Carmichael" in the search section off the right about half way down: 












Some of the books Amy wrote are:
