No Reserves, No Retreats, No Regrets

  1. This encouraging story was shared with me over 10 years ago by a pastor via email. I have it along with hundreds of other sermon illustrations in a file. I’ve shared it many times in sermons/lessons over the past decade. I have no idea where this version came from.

  2. Well, when I saw it was originally written by Mrs. Howard Taylor, I wondered if you knew about her? She has an amazing testimony. Geraldine Guinness was her maiden name and she went to China as missionary when she was still a single woman in her early 20s at the tail end of the Victorian era–which is quite remarkable. She wrote about her every experience her ministry and her prolific written work gives us a beautiful picture of missionary work in that era. It’s just incredible. I encourage you to read up on her or even read some of her work.
