Since the days when those early apostolic heralds of the glad tidings brought home to the churches of Antioch and Jerusalem the reports of their conquests among the heathen, the mission story has never failed to enrich the spiritual life of the church, and to inspire God's children to respond to His call for workers. Missionary information is necessary to missionary inspiration. Our young pe0p1e, to whom the calls from the regions beyond come with special force to day, need.to lift up their eyes and look on the fields White already to harvest. They need to study the great mission fields of the world, and to know how God is using persons like themselves to bring the message of His grace into the lives of those who sit in darkness. God has wonderfully blessed the heralds of the ad vent message in China since they entered that great country, only a few years ago. This book is not an attempt to tell the story of this work. It is merely a series of typical pen sketches, which will give the reader a concrete idea of our missionaries at work. We shall see their surroundings, understand their methods, appreciate their perils, and enter into their joy of seeing souls turned from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God.
