Green Leaf in Drought
It was the 1920s, and a young woman named Isobel Selina Miller was making her mark in the theater, social, and academic world. But through her mother’s prayers and after a tragic romance concluded, Isobel discovered peace with God.
After reading about Hudson Taylor and the China Inland Mission, she sensed a ‘call’ to China, specifically to the Lisu people. Preparation at Moody Bible Institute was completed with honors, and eventually she sailed for China as a missionary. There, she married John Kuhn whom she had first met during her training. Together they faced hardships, long separations, severe illness, war, and death itself. Yet through all this the church among the Lisu people grew in faith and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
This is the story of the reluctant exodus, when the last China Inland Mission members were forced from Communist China. The experiences of Arthur and Wilda Mathews answer the question: Can a Christian grow in the direst – and driest – circumstances? Learn from the story of the labors of Isobel Kuhn.
