Best Sellers: Little Lights – Gladys Aylward

ImageThis week another title that is on our Kids best seller list is one of the Little Lights Books – Gladys Aylward. She is a great missionary heroine. She was one of mine as a young girl. I loved the fact that she stood up for women, rescued orphans and did what God called her to do – despite what other people thought she ought to be doing. If it had been up to society, the church and even the mission organisations she’d have stayed a parlour maid polishing stair cases and beating carpets until she was married or too old to carry on. But God had called Gladys to a different life – a life of missionary service. Many people underestimated Gladys Aylward because she was small, a woman and from a working class background. The official missionary organisations certainly didn’t think she was the sort of candidate they were looking for. However, God proved them wrong.
