John and betty stam quotes
John and Betty Stam by Kathleen WhiteMY REVIEW:
While slightly difficult to read - and probably not best for readers under 12 - this book is a short biography of John and Betty Stam. It begins with an introduction to the history of missions in China and ends with the legacy their lives left behind. This book is a brief 128 pages, but filled with their short and impacting testimony of Gods goodness and faithfulness in all things.
I was significantly blessed by their continuing trust in God in all things - small and large. Their lives - as short as they were - were such bright lights for Christ and truly brought glory to God both in life and in death.
This book is a great overview of their lives and an encouraging testimony of Gods work in the lives of those who have gone on before us. You will be encouraged by their faithfulness and challenged by their dedication.

The Life And Death Of Missionaries John And Betty Stam
Betty was preparing to give their three-month old baby, Helen Priscilla, a bath, with some assistance from the amah Mei Tsong-fuh. The cook, Li Ming-chin, busied himself in the kitchen. His wife, mother, and two children similarly had begun their various daily activities. They had come there under the auspices of the China Inland Mission to oversee the infant Christian work that had been established in the southern portion of Anhwei Province. There were very few Christians in the area, but the Stams were thrilled at the prospect of carrying out pioneer evangelistic work to help bring the Gospel to that needy part of China.
CHINA MISSIONARY MARTYR JOHN & BETTY STAM
The history of missions is the history of answered prayer. From Pentecost to the Haystack meeting in New England and from the days when Robert Morrison landed in China to the martyrdom of John and Betty Stam, prayer has been the source of power and the secret of spiritual triumph. It is the cause, not the death, that makes the martyr. I could be martyred for my religion. Love is my religion and I could die for that. I could die for you.
