"I am encouraged and inspired by these women who trusted God and went to hard places. Their confidence in Him and their willingness to forsake comfort for those to whom they were called makes me long for those qualities in my own life. I admire the steel backbones of these women and the compassionate hearts they had for the lost."Amy Carmichael was a Christian missionary to India who served there for 55 years without furlough. The title of Elliot's biography was no doubt inspired by Amy's response to a question she received in a letter from a young lady: "What is missionary life like?" Her reply: "Missionary life is simply a chance to die."
So, if you are looking for something to read at the minute, perhaps you might want to read and be inspired by the life and legacy of Amy Carmichael. Also, take time to visit Beth's blog where she posted about this topic back in October of last year!
