Clearly I acquired to see and expertise so much as I traveled 24 nations throughout 6 continents. I noticed a lot of the world, so lots of its beauties, and so lots of its treasures. In all that I noticed, what stood out probably the most?

I suppose the reply most likely varies a little bit day-by-day however virtually each time I discover myself drawn again to southern India and Dohnavur Fellowship the place missionary Amy Carmichael lived out the good majority of her life. I had already traveled by way of Northern Eire to see her house city, to see the church she based as a younger woman, and to learn by way of her valuable, marked-up Bible.

After which it was off to India the place we traveled to the countrys southernmost tip. From there we drove inland a few hours till we arrived on the gates of Dohnavur Fellowship. Although it had been based over a century earlier than, and although its founder had been lifeless for 70 years, it was not solely nonetheless in existence, however appeared to nonetheless be thriving.

There have been nonetheless youngsters residing on its grounds, although native authorities had mentioned it might now not take care of orphans. There was a big hospital with trendy surgical theaters. There was a house for lepers. There was a church. There have been godly individuals who spoke of the gospel and lamented the encroachment of unsound theology inside Indias church buildings. Maybe most transferring of all, was Me-Malar who had been dropped at Dohnavur as a younger orphan, who had been welcomed by Carmichael herself, who had grown up there, and who had devoted her life to it. She was a good looking, highly effective hyperlink between the previous and the current.

In fact there was additionally an object in Carmichaels quarters that stood out to me and that proved to be precisely the sort of object I had come to find, to review, and to put in writing about. However I suppose to study that, youll have to learn the ebook and/or watch the documentary.
