Description

EVEN THOUGH ADELAIDE LOCHER never actually joined the international mission family of which I am the privileged "father," I am very happy to write a brief foreword to Mrs. Canfield's story. Miss Locher certainly offered herself to God for China; and He said, "Thou didst well that it was in thine heart," but He closed the door. Then is it worthwhile to write of one who was thwarted, never even reaching the mission field? We love to read stories of high achievement-what did Adelaide Locher achieve? Reading this book you will discover, I think, that like Enoch (Hebrews 11:5, 6) she had this testimony, that she pleased God. There is no higher aim than that. And "without faith it is impossible to please him." This is a story of courage that would not be daunted, of joy that nothing could quench, of one who trusted God without asking for explanations. An English writer, C. A. Fox, who knew the discipline of suffering, writes: Two glad services are ours; Both the Master loves to bless. First we serve with all our powers, Then with all our feebleness. Nothing else the soul uplifts, Save to serve Him night and day- Serve Him when He gives His gifts, Serve Him when He takes away. As I finished reading the story of Adelaide Locher, greatly moved by the radiance with which she faced long periods of suffering, I prayed that its fragrance may remind all who read it of the loveliness of Him who produced that fragrance in her. He alone is worthy. Frank Houghton, General Director, China Inland Missionshow more
