When Amy Carmichael (1867-1951) arrived in India, she had no idea the dangerous work ahead---to save young girls from cult prostitution in Hindu temples. Nor could she imagine the times of material need, physical danger, pain and debilitating illness, disappointment and attack by friends. From this crucible, she writes of her uplifting times with God---who calls us all to find safety in Him, to live honestly before Him, and to receive peace as we live in His presence.
Amy Carmichael, a well known poet, hymnwriter, and author, spent fifty-six years in India as a missionary. 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.
