Good evening friends! Its good to be with you as always as we gather together to worship the Living God.
So one of my favorite movies as a child was a movie called the “Inn of Sixth Happiness.” Have any of you seen it? It is an old Hollywood classic starring Ingrid Bergman, which depicted the true life story of a British woman who against all odds became a missionary to China in the 1930s.
This woman, Gladys Aylward, was a working class woman who felt strongly that God had called her to China, yet because of her inadequate education, she was repeatedly rejected by the missionary societies who could send her there.
Despite the obstacles, Glady’s sense of call to China was so strong so that she persisted in finding a way and sought out every contact she could. Eventually, she discovered a missionary woman in her 70s named Jeannie Lawson who needed some assistance with her inn in Yangchen, China.
