A profound look into the life of Amy Carmichael pioneer missionary, poet, hymnwriter and author.Arriving in India as a pioneer missionary, Amy Carmichael had no idea of the dangerous work ahead of her to save young girls from cult prostitution in Hindu temples, and later to take in boys sold to temple service and traveling acting troupes. Not could she foresee the times of material need, physical danger, pain and debilitating illness, disappointment and attack by friends. Her life and the mission she founded in Dohnavur Fellowship are a stunning and inspirational story.Poet, hymnwriter and author, Amy Carmichael's fifty-six years in India and the legacy of her work stand as a lasting testimony to the courageous young woman from Northern Ireland who stepped into the darkness surrounding her and found the greatest "refuge" of all the sheltering love of God. This short biography makes for great reading.The personal story of one whose simple obedience continues to help change the world.
