Synopsis

Isobel Kuhn Lights in Lisuland by Irene Howat

Isobel Kuhn wasn't always a missionary - she wasn't always a Christian.Her teachers discouraged a belief in God and promoted evolution. Isobel sometimes doubted whether there was anybody there at all to hear her prayers. They don't go beyond the ceiling you know, she once said to her father who was desperately praying for his young daughter. Isobel even considered suicide once but the thought of her parents' heartache stopped her. Discover what brought this questioning, antagonistic teenager from doubts to faith in Christ. Find out how she affected the lives of countless people on the mission field of China and Thailand. This stirring and challenging story of faith is a role model to young people everywhere.

Reviews

Try another Trailblazer: No Mountain too High - Gladys Aylward by Myrna Grant. Gladys Aylward was another trailblazing Christian who changed the lives of the people around her. She was also a missionary in the Far East. Both Gladys and Isobel are good role models and heroines that girls can believe in. Catherine MacKenzie (Author and CF4K Editor) This book tells of the power of prayer in their lives and of the many sacrifices of creature comforts they endured joyfully and without complaint. It details fascinating descriptions of ship travel to and from China and the Philippines. It could be read profitably by an adult, a student, or read aloud to an entire family. School-aged children would find it an appropriate selection for a book report, too.--Reformation and Revival magazine Try another Trailblazer: No Mountain too High - Gladys Aylward by Myrna Grant.Gladys Aylward was another trailblazing Christian who changed the lives of the people around her.
