      I went to China eager and hopeful to be a soul winner I was ridiculously, pathetically unprepared for the costThis is the sequel to By Searching which I have just read Isobel Kuhn begins missionary work, with her husband John Through the narrative, she demonstrates how God uses all things for his purposes and how she learned to trust Him in the dark places Many of her struggles were personal and relate to the inner attitudes and mortifying of the flesh Standing in front of us, an experienced mis [...]

      Do you need encouragement in Christ and the work of His kingdom This intimate auto biography shows how the Lord uses the fellowship of suffering to perfect His character in His own children, and to make His name known.A servant is not above his master but the Master tenderly cares for His sheep and uses them to display His glory We are than conquerors through Him Read and be blessed and strengthened

      Another excellent missionary biography that has left me wanting to read all of her books The personal reflections teach a lot of life changing truths about the faithfulness of God and the importance of waiting for His leadership in every step of our way The answer is not to hurry but to wait to make sure we have clear direction from Him about what He would have us to do in the situation.

      This is such a great missionary biography It s about the challenges Isobel Kuhn had in getting to the mission field and working there in China I loved every word of it She gives lessons learned along the way, and her main point is God taught me through the years to view my own trials as platforms in today s Arena It s an idea she later discovered famous missionary Hudson Taylor also had He said Difficulties afford a platform upon which He can show Himself Without them, we could never know how te [...]

      I m inclined to give it even 5 stars, but maybe it is because of where I was at in my own life when I read it I ll have to re read it and see what I think now.

    6. Rachel on said:

      Very good Lots of different lessons from different periods of life this is one to come back to.

    7. Shorel Kleinert on said:

      When any child of God decides to step out in absolute obedience to the will of God, there will be a frantic effort by the powers of darkness to block him Obstacles will spring up to hinder and discourage that one The possibility of obedience will seem and hopeless When things are the blackest and most discouraging is the very time not to give upHe may seem to be delayed, but He will not be too late for the expectant soul waiting in active faith The flesh loves excitement It is always ready to [...]

      I love biographies, so it s a given that I enjoyed this I wasn t as enthralled as in By Searching, but I loved reading about this fascinating woman s life.

    9. Bro on said:

      Really good book on the life of a missionary who gave their life to God with no money in their pocket and God provided the way through Seminary and then to Southern China It was not a life of ease or money falling from the sky, but it was a journey of faith This book taught me some great principals that God will use us if we are willing to surrender to Him The writer said we move too quickly without direction and don t stay until God opens the next opportunity and that causes many of our mistake [...]

      Very encouraging personal account of CIM missionary Isabel Kuhn Using the concept of an Arena as a place for display and public view, the author compares the small problems and trials of life as a platform to demonstrate the power of Christ working in and forming our character.

    11. Dani on said:

      An easy read and interesting look at some of the challenges faced by Isobel during her life as a missionary Once again, I have walked away with a couple of nuggets that have challenged me and rocked my world a bit Highly recommend.

    12. Linn Beall on said:

      Amazing book Isobel Kuhn went through so much but really tells it like it is She doesn t glorify herself and lets us see what missionary life is really like with the good and the bad and the ugly I so appreciate her honesty It is hard to believe all they went through during the war years.

    13. Elaine Mazzo on said:
