- Lottie Moon, missionary to China – “Surely there is no greater joy than saving souls.”
- Amy Carmichael, missionary to India – “Her life was the most fragrant, the most joyfully sacrificial, that I ever knew” (written by Sherwood Eddy).
- Samuel Zwemer, Professor of Missions and missionary to Asia Minor – “The sheer joy of it all comes back. Gladly would I do it all over again.”
- Hudson Taylor, missionary to China, and David Livingstone, missionary to Africa both said – “I never made a sacrifice.”
Counting the cost of following the call of Jesus to proclaim His gospel of grace is not worth comparing with the joy we receive. Will you and I look at the rest of our days through devoted eyes?
