Customer Reviews for Hudson and Maria: Pioneers in China
I happened to read this book just before my expressed my feelings to a girl before she later became my wife. It is an inspiration for me as it is about a man and a woman who commmitted themselves to God and how that commitment brought them through tough times as missionaries in China without causing their love to falter. Even when they lost one of their children to sickness and yet never blame God for it. This book thus has two themes, their missionary work in China and their love for each other. Because they put God as the central focus in their lives, their relationship was all the more strengthened and better for it.
