I love to read about different missionaries and their life stories. Each one is unique and different. They all have different childhoods, different parents and siblings, and different ways of being called to the mission field. But there is one thing they all had in common, their love for the Lord so great that they will follow him anywhere! These people who have followed the Lord no matter the circumstances have always very much interested me. Lots of these amazing stories of persecution and miracles have made me wonder if I would do the same thing for the God I serve.
So i’m going to show you some of my greatest heroes who have inspired me in my walk with the Lord.
Corrie Ten Boom
During World War 2 Corrie Ten Boom hid Jews from the Nazi’s. Because of it she had to go to prison and endure unbelievable hardships.
Most of you probably know of Nate Saint and how he lost his life in ministry for the Lord.
What amazes me about this lady, is the fact that she left all behind to be a missionary to the very same people who killed her own brother.
Lillian was actually engaged when she realized that she was called to the missions field. Though it was very hard Lillian left to Egypt and started a orphanage.
So here are just a few missionaries who I love to read the stories of. These are some of the people who have inspired me!
Who are your heroes of the faith? I would like to know! Feel free to say who yours are in comments below. 🙂
