In 1921 John Bell and his young bride, Edith, left Canada to spend 25 years as pioneer missionaries in northwest China on the borders of Tibet. These stories about their remarkable experiences in this volatile period in the history of China so fascinated their grandchildren that near the end of their lives John and Edith were persuaded to record them. Although most of the stories are about peaceful interaction with the diverse population and cultures of the region, they are also tales of high adventure--piracy, wars, and wartime imprisonment, hazardous escapes by raft down the Yellow River and by plane over "the hump" to safety in India, a cruise-like repatriation on the Gripsholm--all of which effectively scattered the family around the world for several years until their reunion in Canada in 1945. However, the real story is about the goodness and faithfulness of God in guiding, protecting, providing for and using an inexperienced young couple who dared to trust in Him.
