6 stories to make you believe in miracles.
In her book Outrageous Openness , Tosha Silver writes about her straight-laced, highly-skeptical, economics professor friend Don, who liked to introduce Tosha as his “wacky, psychic pal with a degree from Yale.”
One day, Tosha asked Don, “Really Don, total truth. Has anything ever happened that made you wonder if you had the full picture? Anything ever rock your perfect little rational world?”
Don went on to tell her about one night when he was in college, when he went to sleep before his roommate had come home for the night. At 3am, Don awoke with a pounding heart and heard his roommate calling his name, twice. But the room was empty.
He stumbled out to his VW Bug, woke up with a start, put on his clothes, walked to his car, and started driving. But it felt more like the car was driving itself to the side of the road several blocks away. Like a magnet, Don was drawn to a spot ten blocks away, where he found his roommate buried under a snowbank, drunk, disoriented, and freezing.
Tosha was fascinated. “Man, you gotta be kidding me. This didn’t change your life at all?”
“No way," said Don. "I had to see it all as a coincidence. If I hadn’t, I would have had to question everything.”
Don is not the only rationalist to sweep under the carpet an anomalous experience that didn’t fit into his world view. If he had allowed himself to realize that he had come face to the face with a perfect example of human telepathy and clairvoyance, he might have faced a threatening, that perhaps his worldview isn’t large enough to encompass what really happens in people’s lives.
Psychoanalyst, researcher, and UC-Berkeley professor Elizabeth ("Lisby") Lloyd Mayer faced a similar dilemma. One day in 1991, Lisby’s 11 year-old daughter Meg’s handmade harp was stolen from the theater where she was playing. For two months, Lisby tried everything to recover the harp. The police got involved. She contacted instrument dealers all over the country. A CBS TV news story even aired. But nothing worked. The harp was lost.
Then a friend of Lisby’s said, “If you really want that harp back, you should be willing to try anything. Try calling a dowser.”
Lisby was skeptical. All she knew about dowsers was that they were made up of odd people who walked around with forked sticks telling you where to drill wells.
But Lisby’s friend told her that really good dowsers could find not just underground water, but lost objects. At a loss, Lisby figured she had nothing to lose. She contacted the president of the American Society of Dowsers , Harold McCoy in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and explained that a harp had been stolen from Oakland, California. She asked Harold if he could help her locate the harp.
Harold said, “Give me a second. I’ll tell you if it’s still in Oakland.” He was silent for a moment and then said, “Well, it’s still there. Send me a street map of Oakland and I’ll locate that harp for you.”
Lisby overnighted Harold a map of Oakland. Two days later, he called to give her the address of where the harp was located. Lisby had never heard of the street he named, but she passed the information along to the police. The police shook their heads. They couldn’t issue a search warrant based on a hunch. So Lisby decided to drive over and post flyers within a two block radius of the address Harold had given her, offering a reward for the return of the harp.
Three days later, her phone rang. A man said that his neighbor had recently showed him the exact harp the flyer was describing. He promised to give it to a teenage boy who would deliver it to her in the rear parking lot of an all-night Safeway.
In spite of her own skepticism, Lisby showed up at the appointed time and place, where a young man loaded the harp into the back of her station wagon. That’s when Lisby came to the same conclusion Don would have come to if he had accepted what had happened with he and his roommate. This changes everything.
Lisby went on to write a wonderful book Extraordinary Knowing: Science, Skepticism, and the Inexplicable Powers of the Human Mind , which is full of stories of people who knew things they shouldn’t have, as well as the scientific data supporting the existence of paranormal phenomena like telepathy, clairvoyance, remote viewing, and the power of prayer.
The Neurosurgeon’s Success Secret
Lisby was talking to a client, a neurosurgeon with impeccable credentials and an uncanny ability to perform the most dangerous surgeries. In spite of how life-threatening his surgeries were, his patients never seemed to die. But this neurosurgeon kept getting migraines, and standard treatment wasn't working, so he went to see Lisby.
She helped him pinpoint exactly when the headaches began. It turns out the headaches started right when he stopped teaching medical students and residents at the university hospital. Why did he stop teaching? He was reluctant to tell her, but he finally confessed.
The neurosurgeon admitted that his success rates are so high because he waits until a white light surrounds the patient's head. Then—and only then—he knows it's safe to operate. But how can he teach this to medical students? Surely he can't train residents to look for halos around people with brain tumors and aneurysms?
Because he felt like he had to hide the mystical experiences that help him guide his patients safely through surgery, he quit teaching, and perhaps the discord within him led to migraines. The neurosurgeon was stuck. He felt he couldn't tell anyone at the university that he sees white lights nobody else sees. Surely, it would ruin his reputation. By betraying what was true for him, he was getting migraines. It’s a conundrum many face when we deny our own experience of reality because it doesn’t fit with our neat little world views.
Stories of Everyday Miracles
After reading Lisby’s book, I asked people on Facebook and on my blog whether they had ever known something they shouldn’t have known, something that made them feel like we live in a friendly universe that guides and protects us. The 100+ stories that came in touched my heart. Here are a few.
I was in Rio, Brazil for my brother's wedding and a few days after the ceremony, we were all sitting relaxing on the beach. My brother had walked down the beach alone about half an hour before I got a terrible, chilling feeling. I just started telling his best friend, "Go find Landon! Go find Landon!"
His friend knows my "gut" instinct level well and took off down the beach. He finally got to my brother where a lifeguard had saved him from the undertow.

The woman who needed a hug
I was in a small Hallmark shop looking for a card when it happened. There were two other people in the store: the clerk at the register and a woman further down the aisle. All of a sudden, I was overwhelmed by a voice and a feeling throughout my being, which said, Hug her .
The instinct became more frequent and insistent until I walked over to the woman and said, "I know this will sound strange, but do you need a hug?"
Her face immediately crumpled as she nodded her head and leaned into me. I'm not sure how long we stood there with our arms wrapped around one another. Once her tears had subsided enough for her to speak, she told me it was the one year anniversary of her teen daughter's passing.

Home buying instincts
In April 2012, after serious intent to buy a home in a neighboring town, after bidding on a property, I just flat out and unilaterally decided against it in the 11th hour. My family was beyond upset with me. The kids were excited about living in this town, but my gut flat out refused. There was nothing to explain this feeling. The town was perfect, and the home was lovely. I just felt that it was the wrong choice. I am typically accommodating and flexible, but in this instance, I was adamantly against the idea.
We settled on a home within our own town. We moved in June, and the kids started school in September. On December 14, 2012, the unthinkable happened at Sandy Hook Elementary school. My youngest (a child I never thought I would be able to have and came into this existence ever so unusually to begin with), would have been in that school on that day had I stayed the course. -

12 Tiny Stories of Gratitude
An honest repairman. Water aerobics. Lifesaving medicine. These are just a few of the things New York Times readers are grateful for this year.
By Alisha Haridasani Gupta
Illustrations by Daniel Salmieri
- Nov. 23, 2022
We asked Times readers to tell us what they were thankful for this year, in fewer than 100 words — a storytelling style popularized by The Times’ Tiny Love Stories . We received nearly 1,500 entries that touched on everything from large moments of gratitude, like a lifesaving drug or the birth of a child, to the joys of the mundane, like ice cream and exercise.
Here are a few of the responses we received:
Spaghetti Pie and laughter
Halfway through a five-years-long goodbye with my father, I forgot what his laugh sounded like. After his death a few months ago, my siblings and I recovered three treasures. Gifts, really: a recipe card for Spaghetti Pie, an experimental dinner he made for us once that was as disgusting as it sounds; a photo of him dressed as a turkey, something he did most Thanksgivings just to embarrass us; and mock infomercials he’d recorded a decade before he got sick. In the video bloopers, I heard his laugh again — a breathy “pah” not unlike my own.
— Carrie Friedman, 45, Los Angeles
A neighborly neighbor
Your ‘hello’ waves, your bouncy gait as you mow our lawn since it’s right next to yours. Your spicy chicken curry when our third was born. Your ‘stop!’ when my son’s green ball rolled into the street and I wasn’t there. Your giant trampoline filled with little feet from every house. Your ‘send the kids over’ so I could sip coffee in silence. The passing down of the dinosaur costume you made, a pink dress, puzzles. How you thought of me, looked out for me and my family in this disconnected world.
— Jenna Jonaitis, 34, Grand Rapids, Mich.
The kindness of the cashier
I work from home, taking twice-weekly breaks to walk to the market. I talk to Mirella the cashier as she rings up my purchases. I ask about her grandson. She asks about my kids, who she has seen grow from stroller to college. This year, we check in about her sister and my mother, who both have Alzheimer’s. The brutal disease is robbing us both, and as part-time caregivers, the sad weight of it all can be a lot. But twice a week, someone I’ve never seen outside the market checks in with me and I’m grateful.
— Emily Franklin, 50, Boston
A tiny record store opened up in our tiny Northern California town. I am a vinyl junkie and immediately became a regular. Now, one of the owners knows my tastes so well, he’ll text me randomly: “Mule Variations and Swordfishtrombones . Interested?” I’m the round-the-clock caregiver for my disabled husband. The owners hold the LPs for me until I can make it in. Their store is a bright spot of promise and nostalgia in a life that can be sad.
— Annalisa McMorrow, 53, Point Reyes Station, Calif.
Three years of heartache.
Nine months of hopeful concern.
And now elation.
Astrid is finally here!
— Madelaine Driskill, 34, Colorado Springs
The miracle of medicine
I saw his wet eyes. He was terrified. “Will I make it, doc?” he asked, like many had done before. He had AIDS and Covid-19, the two diseases that marked my career, and monkeypox, the new one that was bringing back the ’90s fears and stigma. I remembered a time, not long ago, when I would have had little to offer beyond my compassion … not now, not anymore. I gave him antiretrovirals, a monoclonal antibody and, after a call with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, TPOXX and cidofovir. I am grateful that I was able to answer: “Yes, I think so.”

We gather at the field around 7:30 a.m., enough time to apply wraps, balms and braces, and roll out tired limbs. Our bellies, stuffed into our favorite English football jerseys, overhang the elastic of our shorts. The game begins and the thump, thump of foot on ball is punctuated by the usual insults: “The goal is over there, Mike.” For an hour, all is forgotten: last night’s shouting match with the wife, the dwindling bank balance, the polite rejection at work. We are together, playing a game that we love. I’m grateful for old men in too-tight soccer shorts.
— Barak Goodman, 59, Brooklyn, N.Y.
I am armpit deep in a swimming pool with 50 other water-aerobic women of a certain age, kicking as high as I can while pumping my water weights down and as far as each will go. “Harder,” the leader yells. “Higher.” We yelp and obey. Our group of women faithfully stomp, kick, punch and leap because we love it here. We love each other and support each other. We have seen the dark side of life, and are here to live and laugh and even move. There is no fat shaming here. I am mighty grateful for it all.
— Barbara Hart, 77, Cincinnati
‘An honest repairman’
It was a tough week and I was exhausted as I drove home from the airport. Suddenly the engine just cut off. I drifted to a stop on the shoulder of a busy highway. I called a tow truck and my car ended up at a nearby repair shop. This was going to be expensive. I called a cab and got home. The next morning the repair shop called and said the bill was $10. What? Turns out I had run out of gas, not broken down. He could have charged me anything, but I found an honest repairman.
— John Parker, 69, Pawleys Island, S.C.
Short and sweet
I’m grateful for my family and ice cream.
— Noah Pasco, 6, New York City
A coincidence or a spiritual visitation?
The day after you died in May, a mourning dove began visiting my backyard for the first time. He often appeared after I sat at the wooden table, perching on a nearby branch as his small, feathered body vibrated into a series of coos. I jokingly named him TJ — an inverse of your name — and whether he came by coincidence (as you would have argued), or a spiritual visitation (as my mystical mother suggested), he stayed for several weeks. Talking to him filled me with gratitude and reminded me that you live on: within me and everyone who loves you.
— Natalie Jabbar, 36 , Bay Area of California
‘Love and perseverance’
Our 25th wedding anniversary. We are lesbians. When we met in Portland, Maine, in 1994, we were both activists. Lesbians and gay men were just beginning to challenge marriage laws. We bought the first book written about planning a gay wedding. On Oct. 4, 1997, we gathered with 75 friends and married. It was not legally recognized. But nothing could stop us. For 15 years we traveled to any state or country that would give us a legal document, recognizing us as a couple. Ontario was our first legal marriage; then New York State and finally the United States. Love and perseverance.

6 Stories of Angels, Prayers and Miracles

Some of the most fascinating and uplifting stories of the unexplained are those that people perceive as being miraculous in nature. Sometimes they are in the form of answered prayers or are seen as the actions of guardian angels. These remarkable events and encounters lend comfort, strengthen faith -- even save lives -- at times when it seems these things are needed most.
Are they literally from heaven, or are they created by a little-understood interaction of our consciousness with a profoundly mysterious universe ? However you view them, these real-life experiences are worth our attention.
The Home Run
While many of these kinds of stories are life-altering, or otherwise deeply affect the people who experience them, some involve activities as seemingly inconsequential as a kids' baseball game.
Consider John D.'s story. His baseball team had made it to the playoffs but was struggling in one of the semi-final games. John's team was at bat in the bottom of the last inning with two outs, two strikes, and three balls, bases loaded. His team was behind, 7 to 5. Then something very unusual happened:
"Our second baseman called a timeout so he could tie his shoe," John says. "I was sitting on the bench when suddenly a strange man I had never seen before appeared in front of me. I was frozen still and my blood turned to ice. He was dressed all in black and he spoke without even looking at me. I was not very fond of our batter. This man said, 'Do you hold courage in this boy, and do you have faith?' At that, I turned to my coach, who had taken off his sunglasses and was sitting right next to me; he didn't even notice the man. I turned back to the stranger, but he was gone. The next moment, our second baseman called time in. The next pitch, our batter hit a home run out of the park, winning us the game 8 to 7. We went on to win the championship."
Angel's Guiding Hand
Winning a baseball game is one thing, but escaping serious injury is quite another. Jackie B. believes that her guardian angel came to her aid on two such occasions. Most interesting, her testimony is that she actually physically felt and heard this protective force. Both happened when she was a child of kindergarten age:
"Everybody in the town used to go to the hill by the post office to sled in the winter," says Jackie. "I was sledding with my family and I went to the steep part. I closed my eyes and went down. I apparently hit someone going down and I was spinning out of control. I was heading for the metal guardrail. I didn't know what to do. I suddenly felt something push my chest down. I came within less than a half inch of the rail but didn't hit it. I could have lost my nose."
"The second experience was during a celebration of my birthday in school. I went to put down my crown on the bench at the playground during recess. I was running back to play with my friends. Three boys suddenly tripped me. This playground had a lot of metal things and wood chips (not a good combo). I went flying and hit something about 1/4 of an inch under my eye. But I felt something pull me back when I fell. The teachers said that they saw me sort of fly forward then fly back at the same time. As they hurried me to the nurse's office, I heard an unfamiliar voice keep telling me,'Don't worry. I'm here. God doesn't want anything to happen to his baby.'"
The Accident Warning
Is our future planned, and is this therefore how psychics and prophets can see the future? Or is the future only a set of possibilities, the path to which can be altered by our actions? A reader with the username Hfen writes how she received two separate and remarkable warnings about a possible future incident toward which she was heading. They may have saved her life:
"At approximately four in the morning, my phone rang," writes Hfen. "It was my sister calling from across the country. Her voice trembled and she was near tears. She told me she had a vision of me being in a car accident. She didn't say whether or not I was killed in it, but the sound of her voice made me think she did believe this but was afraid to tell me. She told me to pray and she said she would pray for me. She told me to be careful, to take another route to work -- anything I could do. I told her I believed her and would call our mother and ask her to pray with us.
I left for work at the hospital, terrified but strengthened in the spirit. I went to talk to patients about some concerns. As I was leaving, a man sitting in a wheelchair near the door called to me. I went to him expecting that he had a complaint against the hospital. He told me God had given him a message that I would be in a car accident! He said someone not paying attention would hit me. I was so shocked I almost fainted. He said he would pray for me and that God loved me. I felt weak in the knees as I left the hospital. I drove like a little old lady as I observed every intersection, stop sign and stop light. When I got home, I called my mom and sister and told them I was fine."
The Flight Papers
A saved relationship can be just as important as a saved life. A reader calling herself Smigenk relates how a little "miracle" might have rescued her troubled marriage. A few years ago, she was making every effort to mend her rocky relationship with her husband and set up a long romantic weekend in Bermuda. Then things started to go wrong, and it seemed her plans were ruined... until "fate" intervened:
"My husband grudgingly agreed to go, but was concerned with the short time between our connecting flights," Smigenk says. "We thought things were going well going into Philly, but there had been some bad weather and the planes were backed up; hence, we were put in a holding pattern and landed just as our connecting flight to Bermuda was due to board. We rushed through the airport, only to arrive at the check-in desk as the gate door was closing. I was devastated and my husband was not in a good mood.
We asked for new flights but were told that it would take two more flights and about 10 more hours to arrive. My husband said, 'That's it. I'm not putting up with this anymore,' and started to walk out of the area and -- I just knew -- out of the marriage. I was truly devastated. As my husband was walking away, the attendant saw on the counter (and I swear it had not been there when we checked in) a packet. She was obviously upset that it was still there. It turned out to be the landing papers packet that the pilot must have on board to land in a different country. She quickly called the plane to return. The plane had been on the runway ready to start powering up the engines. It returned to the gate for the papers and they allowed us (and others) to get on.
Our time in Bermuda was wonderful and we resolved to work on our problems. Our marriage has gone through more rough times, but we both have never forgotten that incident in the airport when I felt as if my world had collapsed and was given a miracle that helped us keep a marriage and a family together."
The Reading Angel
It's remarkable how many stories of angels come out of hospital experiences. Maybe not so hard to understand when we realize they are places of sharply focused emotions, prayers, and hope. Reader DBayLorBaby entered the hospital in 1994 with acute pain from "a fibroid tumor the size of a grapefruit" in her uterus. The surgery was successful but more complicated than expected, and her troubles weren't over:
"I was in horrible pain," DBayLorBaby recalls. "The doctor gave me a morphine IV drip, only to find out that I am allergic to morphine. I had an allergic reaction, and so they counteracted with some other meds. I was horrified! I had just had a major surgery, learned that I might not be able to have children in the future and had just suffered an acute drug reaction. That same night they gave me another pain med and I slept soundly for a few hours.
I awoke in the middle of the night. According to the wall clock, it was 2:45. I heard someone speaking and realized someone was at my bedside. It was a young woman with short brown hair and wearing a white hospital staff uniform. She was sitting and reading aloud from the Bible. I said to her, 'Am I alright? Why are you here with me?'
She stopped reading but didn't turn to look at me. She simply said, 'I was sent here to make sure you'd be alright. You are going to be fine. Now you should get some rest and go back to sleep.' She began to read again and I drifted off back to sleep. The next day, I was having my checkup with my doctor and I explained to him what happened during the night before. He looked puzzled and checked my post-surgery reports and notes. He told me that no nurses or doctors were stationed to sit with me the night before. I questioned all of the nurses who cared for me; each said the same, that no nurses or doctors had visited my room that night for anything except to check my vitals. To this day, I believe that I was visited by my guardian angel that night. She was sent to comfort me and assure me that I would be okay. Coincidentally, the time on the clock that night, 2:45 a.m., is the exact time recorded on my birth certificate that I was born!"
Rescued From Hopelessness
Perhaps more painful than any injury or illness is the feeling of utter hopelessness -- the despair of the soul that leads one to thoughts of suicide. Dean S. knew this pain as he was going through a divorce at the age of 26. The thought of being apart from his two daughters, aged three and one, was almost more than he could bear. But in one night of stormy darkness, Dean was given renewed hope:
"I was working on a drill rig as a derrickman and seriously thought of taking my life as I looked down the high 128-foot derrick I worked in," says Dean. "My family and I have strong beliefs in Jesus, but it was hard not to contemplate suicide. In the worst thunderstorm I'd ever seen, I climbed the derrick to take my position to pull pipe out of the hole we were drilling.
My co-workers said, 'You don't have to go up. We'd rather take some downtime than lose a man up there.' I brushed them off and climbed anyway. Lightning flashed all around me, thunder boomed. I cried to God to take me. If I couldn't have my family, I didn't want to live... but I couldn't take my own life in suicide. God spared me. I don't know how I survived that night, but I did.
A couple of weeks later, I bought a small Bible and traveled to the Peace River Hills, where my family has lived for so long. I sat down on top of one of the green hills and started to read. I had such a warm feeling enter into me as the sun parted through the clouds and shone on me. It was raining all around me, but I was dry and warm in my small spot on top of that hill.
I now have moved on to a better life, have met the girl of my dreams and the love of my life, and we have a wonderful family together along with my two daughters. Thank you, Lord Jesus and the angels you sent that day to touch my soul!"

Miracles Helped Pioneers Overcome Obstacles, Move Forward with Faith

Many Mormon pioneers recorded miracles that blessed them with the means, sustenance, and protection they needed to press on as they strived to follow God throughout their lives.
Catfish and coins
Mary Elizabeth Rollins Lightner, 1863 pioneer, recorded an experience in an autobiography about a miracle that helped a group of Saints cross the Missouri River after they were exiled from Jackson County. Photo courtesy Church History Library.
Mary Elizabeth Rollins Lightner, an 1863 pioneer, recounted an experience in which she and a group of Saints exiled from Jackson County found themselves on the banks of the Missouri River without enough money for everyone in the group to cross using the ferry.
“One or two families must be left behind, and the fear was that if left, they would be killed,” Lightner recorded in an autobiography.
She said a few men traveling with the group determined they would try to catch some fish, hoping the ferryman would accept the fish as payment. They put out their lines and pulled up some small fish and a 14-pound catfish.
“On opening it, what was their astonishment to find three bright silver half dollars, just the amount needed to pay for taking their team over the river,” Lightner recorded. “This was considered a miracle, and caused great rejoicing among us.”
A pile of bread
Mons and Elna Larson, a convert couple from Sweden who were 1859 pioneers, saw a miracle on their journey west at a time when their company’s provisions began to run out. Company members were rationed to one pint of flour per person a day, according to a life sketch of Mons Larson written by his grandson Elliot.
One evening during this time, the Larsons camped near a river. While Mons was out fishing that night, Elna saw a tree about a mile away from their campsite and felt inspired to go to it.
“To her great surprise, there she found a pile of dry bread,” Elliott wrote. “She gathered it all in her apron and was so overjoyed that she sat down and wept.”
Mons also caught several fish that evening, and the Larsons brought these extra provisions back to their campsite.
“So that night they had a full meal, the first for many days, thus preserving their lives until help reached them,” Elliott recorded.

Daniel and Mary Ann Allen, 1849 pioneers, experienced a miracle of protection while they were living with the Saints in Nauvoo, Illinois. There, Daniel helped to build the Nauvoo Temple and was assigned to serve as a special missionary to Rock Island County, according to a history written by the Allens’ great-granddaughter Ila L. Bauer.
“During the height of the persecutions every man connected with the Church, and especially those who had dared to stand guard at the jail in Carthage where the Prophet Joseph and his brother Hyrum had been incarcerated, were in danger of being killed by the ruthless mob,” Bauer wrote.
Daniel had been one of these guards and one evening felt particularly uneasy. He told Mary Ann he had a feeling the mob would be after him that night and felt he must find a way to outwit them.
“Tucking the children into bed with a good night kiss, his answer came,” Bauer explained.
He saw his wife’s frilly, white night cap on the dresser, tied it on and got into bed “with the baby in his arms and a prayer on his lips,” Bauer related.
Soon, there was a loud pounding at the door, and a group of men demanded to see Daniel. Mary Ann told them he wasn’t there, but that they could search the house if they’d like.
“After carefully going over the entire house and glancing quickly at the figure in the bed cuddling the sleeping child, they stormed out exclaiming, ‘There is no one there but an old woman in bed with her child!’” Bauer recorded.
Bauer wrote that after the men left, the Allens knelt in prayer and thanked God for their deliverance.

14 Unimaginable Miracles That Will Leave You Speechless
🌺 Written by Jessica Clark
Get ready to be amazed! In this article, we’ll take you through 14 extraordinary stories of miracles that are so astonishing they’ll leave you absolutely speechless.
These remarkable tales of divine intervention against all odds will touch your heart and remind you of the extraordinary power of hope, faith, and the unexplainable events that shape our lives.
1. Virtuous Life
One commenter had always identified as a Christian, though their faith sometimes wavered. Two decades ago, they found themselves in possession of a significant quantity of drugs, a situation that could have led to a potential 20-year prison sentence.
Miraculously, the evidence mysteriously vanished from the evidence room, resulting in the dismissal of their case. They regarded this as a divine intervention and thanked God for it, which ultimately served as a catalyst for them to mend their ways and lead a more virtuous life.
2. Better Health
Another commenter had witnessed an elderly man in a wheelchair, whose health had steadily deteriorated, approach the front of their church for a prayer session. Pastors and fellow congregants at the church laid their hands on him and fervently prayed for his healing.
The man suddenly broke into a sprint around the sanctuary, wearing a broad smile with tears of joy streaming down his cheeks. Later, the commenter saw the same man roller skating, an activity he claimed to have not engaged in for two decades. It was undeniably a genuine and remarkable healing.
3. Repaired Relationship
Earlier this year, one commenter’s aunt, suffering from alcohol-induced liver failure, slipped into a coma. In a desperate plea, they prayed for her to wake up and say goodbye.
Miraculously, she emerged from the coma a day or two later, though her liver remained fragile, allowing them to reconnect and bid farewell before her eventual passing. Despite their estrangement during her alcoholism, they cherished the chance to reunite, thanks to what they considered a divine intervention.
4. Divine Sobriety
Having struggled as a heavy drinker for years, one commenter tried unsuccessfully to quit on their own. One pivotal night, they humbly prayed to God for help, and within two weeks, they were freed from alcohol and cigarettes.
This remarkable change occurred 14 years ago, and they emphasized the profound impact of prioritizing God in one’s life. They encouraged others to seek God’s love and guidance by reading His word and allowing His presence to lead them.
5. Unexpected Answer
Reflecting on prayer, one commenter observed that God doesn’t always grant one’s desires but provides what is truly needed.
A few years ago, amid a painful breakup, they cried, pleading with God for their ex to contact them. Shortly after, their phone rang, and a concerned friend called to check on them, reminding them that God had answered their prayer by supplying the genuine need for love and reassurance of not being alone.
6. Educational Excellence
Another commenter shared a close bond with their cousin, who faced challenges in a troubled family environment, leading him astray into gangs and even an arrest during his teens.
Deeply concerned, they believed it wasn’t their place to change him but turned to prayer, trusting in God’s guidance. Remarkably, one to two years later, their cousin severed ties with the gang and committed wholeheartedly to academics.
Despite struggling with basic words like “orange” at 16, he made impressive progress. Today, he is about to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from an English-medium university, marking a significant turnaround in his life.
7. Miraculous Healing
A few years ago, a commenter’s grandfather suffered a severe stroke. The situation was dire, prompting them to offer numerous prayers for his recovery.
Miraculously, their grandfather made a remarkable recovery, now leading a healthy and independent life. To see him thriving, it’s difficult to believe that he had suffered such a devastating stroke just a few years ago, a testament to their gratitude toward the Lord.
8. Religious Conversion
With a mother devoted to Buddhism, one commenter’s deep love led them to desire her acceptance of the gospel. Seeing her reluctance to discuss Jesus, she prayed for divine guidance.
In just a few years, a miraculous change occurred. Their mother started attending church with them, declaring herself a believer in Christ. This transformation felt like a direct message from God to her heart, and it was noteworthy that they had rarely preached the gospel to her.
9. Improved Conditions
A few months ago, another commenter had faced a non-life-threatening but emotionally distressing skin condition. Overwhelmed by pain one day, they knelt in prayer, tears flowing.
Later, as they opened their social media, they encountered a scripture from 2 Kings 20:5: “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; indeed, I will heal you. “Remarkably, within one to two months of that prayer, their skin condition improved significantly.
10. Abolished Alcoholism
For most of their life, another commenter didn’t believe in Jesus, but one day, they learned about the power of faith as small as a mustard seed. Despite their diverse spiritual journey from Sikhism to atheism, agnosticism, and New Age beliefs, they prayed to God in Jesus’s name to remove their 16-year-long alcohol cravings and frequent drug use.
Remarkably, they achieved 300 days of sobriety after their prayer, with no alcohol cravings, even in its presence. They also lost interest in drugs, realizing they were allergic when they attempted to use it again and haven’t touched it since.
11. Life Renewed
Another commenter’s youngest son experienced a miraculous womb healing. Initial ultrasounds showed concerning measurements and a missing hippocampus, prompting an “emergency” c-section plan.
After a weekend of fervent prayer, during which the commenter’s wife felt God’s presence and their baby’s growth intensified, God conveyed to her, “Your baby is healed.”
On the c-section day, another ultrasound showed their baby’s measurements matching 35 weeks gestation, baffling the medical team compared to previous results. Subsequent MRI scans confirmed their son’s intact brain, a testament to the miraculous healing they had witnessed.
12. Divine Intervention
In another commenter’s childhood, they had a heavy wall decoration above their bed’s headboard. One morning, while tired and half asleep in their bedroom, they heard a clear voice instructing them to roll over.
They immediately complied, and moments later, the wall decoration fell from its place, landing on their pillow where their head had been. This disembodied voice likely spared them from severe brain damage or death, and they attributed it to God or His protective guardians.
13. Danger Avoided
Someone else who commented on the thread shared that when they were in high school, they were driving their mom’s car with a friend when they accidentally went into a dangerous intersection, thinking the traffic light had turned green. Cars were coming at them fast, but then something incredible happened.
All three cars stopped suddenly, even though it didn’t make sense. They believed it was a powerful force, possibly from Jesus and his angels, that saved them. Their mom thought it was their guardian angel. This experience made them sure that miracles go beyond regular explanations and show there are mysterious things in the universe.
14. Narrowly Escaping Death
One other commenter in the thread shared that their nephew had a horrible accident and had to be taken to the hospital by helicopter. It was a serious situation where he could have even lost a limb or worse. They did something daring – they prayed for a miracle, not just for him to get better, but for a true miracle.
Their nephew is still getting better, and he’s had a lot of surgeries with screws, rods, and plates put in different parts of his body. Amazingly, each surgery turned out even better than the doctors expected. They believe that God gave them this miracle, and they want to share this incredible story with everyone.

15 Missionary Heroes and Their Inspiring Stories
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links which won’t change your price.
I grew up on a steady diet of missionary stories.
During the long Alaskan winters of my childhood, we had hours of read-aloud time. Curled up around our trusty wood stove, we soaked in the words and the life experiences of some of the greatest heroes of faith: missionaries. David Livingston, J. Hudson Taylor, “ Ai-weh-deh “, Mary Slessor, and many other lesser-known missionaries were familiar names in our home, almost like family friends.
But it wasn’t just foreign missionaries and stories from generations ago that filled my childhood. My parents regularly practiced the art of hospitality, and we were honored to house and get to know modern-day missionaries as well. Seeing them live today on the foundations built by the great missionaries of the past was a gift that has encouraged and inspired me in my own daily walk in all the years since.
As an adult, I look back fondly on those evenings around the fireplace, remembering the words of the missionaries, both past, and present, that graced our home. Thanks to that heritage, I am determined to raise my daughter knowing and loving these heroes of the faith, as well.
For generations, missionary stories have inspired the next generation to go and serve, as well. Two of my siblings have also served extensively overseas, and my brother and his family are preparing to launch to Africa early next year.
Missionaries aren’t always born with exceptional gifts or outstanding talents. It’s the every day, simple people like you and me who let God completely guide their steps who He uses to do great things–here, or far away.
If you are feeling low on faith or have never read much about the missionaries of the past generations, I hope the stories of these fourteen missionary heroes and their companions will inspire you like they have inspired me every day.
15 Missionaries You Should Read About
Adoniram (1788-1850) and ann (1789-1826) judson.
At the age of 25, Adoniram Judson was the first American missionary to Burma. He and Ann married two weeks before they boarded a ship bound for India, from which they eventually were able to make their way to Burma. Judson would spend the next nearly forty years of his life living among and witnessing to the Burmese people. Until her death, Ann was the friend of many and even more fluent in the Burmese language than her academically inclined husband. Judson’s efforts were slow-going. He was imprisoned and tortured, but he never gave up on his God-given calling to reach Burma for Christ. Before his death, Adoniram Judson had not only established several churches in Burma, but he had also given Burma one of the greatest gifts: the Bible in their own language.
You can read more about Adoniram and Ann Judson in these books:
- My Heart in His Hands: Ann Judson of Burma by Sharon James
- To the Golden Shore: The Life of Adoniram Judson by Courtney Anderson
- Adoniram Judson: A Bicentennial Appreciation of the Pioneer American Missionary by Jason G. Duesing
- The Life of Adoniram Judson by Edward Judson
Dr. David Livingstone (1813-1873)
As a child, he worked in the cotton mills to help support his poverty-stricken family. David Livingstone learned perseverance and went on to put himself through medical school and become a doctor before following in the footsteps of Robert Moffat and going to Africa as a doctor and a missionary. Missionary, explorer, and champion of the anti-slavery movement, Dr. Livingstone used his influence and experience to fight great wrongs in the society of his day and to blaze a path for other missionaries to follow in the villages he went to. He believed that he was not called to preaching as much as he was called to finding routes and resources for trade that would displace the profit in slave trading and worked tirelessly towards this end. He was loved by many and respected by the tribes with whom he had contact.
You can read about Dr. Livingstone’s life and discoveries in these books:
- Livingstone: Trail Blazer for God by Leslie and Madge Morrill
- David Livingstone: Explorer and Missionary by Sam Wellman
- The Life and African Exploration of David Livingstone by Dr. David Livingstone
Mary Slessor (1848-1915)
Growing up in the slums of Aberdeen, Scotland, with an alcoholic father and little hope of changing your circumstances doesn’t seem like a promising start for anyone. But for Mary Slessor, her childhood taught her a tenacity and a strength that would serve her well in her years spent living in Nigeria. Mary grew up hearing her devout mother read the mission paper every month. In her heart grew a desire to share Jesus with others. She was 27 when David Livingston passed away, and she decided that she would go and continue his work to reach all of Africa. Mary’s work began in Calabar, and she lived and worked in places where no European had ever been. She faced life-threatening illness and hardship, but “Mighty Mary” did not once consider giving up. She lived with Okoyong and Efik people for 15 years, learning their languages and helping them settle disputes; working tirelessly to educate and overcome superstitions, such as twin-killing and women’s rights. She earned their love and respect and as a result was able to spread the gospel to areas no other missionary could.
You can read Mary’s story in these books:
- Mary Slessor: Missionary Mother by Terri B. Kelly
- Mary Slessor of Calabar: Pioneer Missionary by W.P. Livingstone (free Kindle book!)
J. Hudson Taylor (1932-1905)
For 51 years, J. Hudson Taylor poured his life into bringing Christ behind the closed doors of China. He founded China Inland Mission, and as a result, more than 800 missionaries were brought into the country. Hudson Taylor was a prayer warrior and a faith giant. He was able to speak several Chinese dialects and helped to translate the new testament into the dialect used in Shanghai, where he spent many years of his life. Unlike many European missionaries, Taylor was careful of Chinese culture, respecting their way of life and even adopting their clothing. He faced sickness and loss with a spirit of unshaken trust, leaving behind a legacy that has inspired thousands of missionaries in all corners of the world. In his own words, “All God’s giants have been weak men, who did great things for God because they reckoned on His being with them.”
You can read more about Taylor in these books:
- Hudson Taylor by J. Hudson Taylor
- God’s Man in China by Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor
Amy Carmichael (1867-1951)
Perhaps not many people thought that Amy Carmichael had much of a chance at being a missionary. Suffering from neuralgia, Amy was often weak and in pain so great that she was confined to her bed for weeks at a time. But Amy knew that God had called her to mission work. And with the encouragement of a few, she did go. In India, she found her life calling, and spent her remaining 55 years there without ever going home. Her life was dedicated to ending child prostitution and giving a home and a future to India’s many orphans. Amy was also a prolific author, and her many books have encouraged and inspired many throughout the years.
You can read about Amy’s life in these books:
- Amy Carmichael: Selfless Servant of India by Sam Wellman
- With Daring Faith: A Biography of Amy Carmichael by Rebecca Davis
- A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot
Dr. Nelson Bell (1894-1973)
Dr. Nelson and Virginia Bell worked in China for 25 years, serving the people’s spiritual and physical needs. Dr. Nelson kept a busy schedule as a doctor and surgeon in the clinic in which they served, and used every opportunity to let Jesus shine through his love and care for his patients. Ruth Bell Graham was their second child, and her parents’ example of faithful ministry and loving obedience to Christ obviously shaped her life and ministry.
You can read the Bell’s story in A Foreign Devil in China by John C. Pollock .
Eric Liddell (1902-1945)
Eric Liddell was a successful athlete, but fame and honor didn’t sway him from what he knew was his life calling–to preach the gospel in China. Eric was born in China, to missionary parents. He attended school in London, where he trained and became known for his athletic abilities. He went on to compete in the Olympics but remained true to his convictions. In 1925, Eric returned to China and used his skills to minister and influence many young Chinese for Christ. He was captured by the Japanese during World War II and passed away of an inoperable brain tumor during his imprisonment. His death left a great empty place in the lives and hearts of the many people who he had spent his life serving. His final written words? “It’s complete surrender.”

- For the Glory: Eric Liddell’s Journey from Olympic Champion to Modern Martyr by Duncan Hamilton
- E ric Liddell by Catherine Swift
- Complete Surrender: A Biography of Eric Liddell by Julian Wilson
- Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness by Eric Metaxas
Russell Deibler (1905-1943) and Darlene Deibler Rose (1917-2004)
As a young wife, Darlene and her husband went to what is now the Western Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea. She was the first American woman to travel into the Bailem Valley where she and her husband worked before WWII broke out. With the Japanese invasion of Papua New Guinea, Darlene and Russell were captured and sent to separate concentration camps. Russell did not survive, but against the odds, Darlene did survive and went on to spend many more years in Papua New Guinea as a missionary.
You can read about her life and how her faith sustained her in the prison camps in her book Evidence Not Seen: A Woman’s Miraculous Faith in the Jungles of World War II .
John (1907-1934) and Betty (1906-1934) Stam
The Stams were a young missionary to China. They were captured by a communist mob of rebels and taken captive, along with their three-month-old baby, Priscilla. John and Betty were both brutally murdered by the mob, but Priscilla survived and was miraculously rescued by a lay pastor and returned to her family in the states. Their sacrifice steeled in many at home the desire to share Jesus with the unreached people in many countries.
You can read about the Stam’s lives and sacrifice in:
- John and Betty Stam by Kathleen White
- The Triumph of John & Betty Stam by Mrs. Howard Taylor
Jim (1927-1956) and Elisabeth (1926-2015) Elliot
Jim and Elisabeth met in college, but they didn’t get married until they separately went to Ecuador to minister to the Quichua. They married in Quito and moved to a more remote area to try to make contact with the Huaorani tribe (called the Aucas by the Quichua). Jim and four other missionaries were later killed by the tribe they were trying to reach. After her husband’s death, Elisabeth returned and spent two years ministering to the tribe that killed him. Elisabeth Elliot is one of the most known and loved women missionaries in the last few generations . Through her extensive speaking and many beautiful books, her legacy and inspiration will live on in the hearts of all who read them.
You can read the Elliots’ stories in the following books:
- The Journals of Jim Elliot edited by Elisabeth Elliot
- Through Gates of Splendor by Elisabeth Elliot
- The Savage My Kinsman by Elisabeth Elliot
- End of the Spear by Steve Saint
Gladys Aylward (1902-1970)
She always knew that she would be a missionary, but when Gladys applied to the China Inland Mission she was denied. They didn’t think someone so young could learn the language, and she had little education to back her up. Gladys wasn’t one to give up, and after working as a housemaid, she spent her life savings on a train ticket to China. Her trip was full of setbacks, but in 1932, Gladys arrived in Yangcheng and began to work with an older missionary, Jennie in setting up the Inn of the Eighth Happiness. Gladys worked for the Chinese government as a “foot inspector”, enforcing the new laws against female foot binding. She became a beloved Chinese citizen, affectionately called “Ai-Weh-Deh”. She took in many orphans and unwanted girls. When the region was invaded by the Japanese during WWII, Gladys took around 100 orphans over the mountains to safety. Unable to return to China after the communist regime was in place after the war, Alyward settled in Taiwan where she spent her remaining days running her orphanage and sharing Jesus with her many friends and the children for whom she cared.
You can read more about Gladys Aylward and her amazing life of faith in Gladys Aylward: The Little Woman (Gladys’ story in her own words, as told to Christine Hunter).
Jack (1928-2011) and Allegra McBirney
Jack and Allegra McBirney became missionaries to Newfoundland in the early 1960s , together with their six children. The McBirney family spent about seven years on the mission field, teaching God’s Word through Bible clubs and home Bible studies. When they had established a Bible-teaching church, they returned to the United States. Jack was instrumental in founding two Christian schools in the San Francisco area. Meanwhile, Allegra poured her heart into her radio ministry, writing, and speaking, traveling the world in her ministry to military families . Jack also made many trips to Russia (in between treatments for cancer), burdened to lead communist teachers to Christ and introduce a Christian curriculum into former communist schools. When Jack’s health began to decline due to Alzheimer’s, Allegra stopped traveling to care for him. They had been married 61 years when Jack went home to Heaven. Despite severe cataracts and constant health struggles, 90-year-old Allegra continues her ministry and correspondence from her home–often even from the confines of her bed. Allegra calls it her “one-person publishing company” as she continues to oversee the translation and distribution of her books around the world, for the outreach of the Gospel.
You can read more stories from the life of modern-day missionaries Jack and Allegra McBirney in some of Allegra’s books for children:
- A Treasury of Very Special Stories for All the Family , Volumes I and II
- Little Stories from Mike’s House
Brother Andrew (1928)
Andy van der Bijl was born in a small Dutch village in the late 1920s. He was always looking for thrill and adventure, so when he was 18 he joined the Dutch Army. He lived recklessly during his time in the military, with little thought to God or the future. But when he was shot in the ankle at age 20, which sent him to the hospital for awhile and ended his military career, the love and joy of the Sisters who cared for the injured–as well as his sense of guilt over the things he did while in the military–led him to pick up the Bible. He came home an empty, broken young man, but with a thirst to know God. One night he finally prayed, “Lord, if You will show me the way, I will follow You. Amen.” From that day, God led him on a new kind of adventure, bringing Bibles and much-needed spiritual encouragement behind the Iron Curtain, and later to countries in the Middle East.
You can read about Brother Andrew’s conversion and his journeys in his book God’s Smuggler .
Bruce Olsen (1941)
From the time he became a Christian at age 16, Bruce felt a pull in his heart to go to the unreached corners of the world and tell others about Jesus. At 19, Bruce Olsen bought a plane ticket to Venezuela. Shortly after his arrival, he learned of the Bari tribe, a group of people with little to no positive contact with the rest of the world. They were violent and considered “Stone Age”. He had a burden to reach the Bari with the news of Jesus and his life work centered on connecting with and sharing the Gospel with them in a way that they could understand. His life was full of challenges as he attempted to reach and be accepted by the Bari, but the ways God used him to lead them to Christ were truly beautiful.
You can read the story of his mission work in his book Bruchko .
Martin (1959-2002) and Gracia Burnham
Martin & Gracia Burnham had been missionaries with New Tribes Missions for 17 years when their lives suddenly changed. While celebrating their wedding anniversary, they were kidnapped by a local militant group and held hostage for over a year. Sadly, Martin was killed during their rescue on June 7, 2002.
Gracia tells the gripping story of their captivity and spiritual growth in the book, In the Presence of My Enemies .
Gracia also authored To Fly Again , highlighting specific lessons God taught her husband and her while they were held captive. Her transparency as she shares lessons we all need to learn encourages the reader in contemplating a wide range of topics including as revenge, worry, praise, joy, and impatience.
If you aren’t aware or a part of the modern missionary efforts that are going on around the world, I urge you to take a moment to get involved. A prayer, a letter, or a word of encouragement go so far in keeping the spirits of our brothers and sisters across the seas strong.
Now I want to hear from you!

Thank you to Gretchen Louise ( editor in chief here at Kindred Grace ) for contributing the informational bios of Jack and Allegra McBirney.
Chantel has loved good stories with real-life challenges and happy afters since she was a young child.
She is a country girl currently living in Tennessee, USA, and carving out a little urban slice of country living down south. She and her husband seek to live their lives simply and joyfully and teach their two redheaded children to be intentional about their days.
She is a writer at heart who blogs only sometimes these days .
Yes! Remember reading about many of these! Paul Brand “The Gift of Pain”- about his time serving the lepers. I remember reading a series of comic book types in the late 70s…there was one missionary story I wish I could find now- I think she, too, was serving the lepers…and a Pearl necklace was a special note at an important part of her story- I just can’t remember her name!
We have directed a Bible camp for over 40 years and each of our cabins are named after missionaries. Each summer we pick one of those missionaries and tell their story during our missions class each day with our campers. For some, it’s their favorite part of camp. Each cabin has the missionary story and their picture hangong on the wall of their cabin. Many of the missionaries mentioned are ones we have used for naming our cabins.
Having been raised in a drunkards home, I was gloriously saved while in the Air Force at the age of 23. I gave my whole life to the Lord that night. Little did I know that that decision would take me around the world many times preaching the gospel and training young preachers. My cildren were raised listening to those very same missionary stories. (Some while on the mission field in PNG. (Darlene Rose is still a family favorite) Though we now have many stories of our own, those missionary stories of old still encorage us to pick up our sad sacks, and march on for Jesus! Our oldest is to this day a missionary in PNG, living stories of her own now, with a daughter and her husband now reaping from the seed we sowed those many years ago. The sold out Christian life is the only way to go! Thank you for the humble reminder of the goodness of God in a persons life!
My wife and I are missionaries in Japan and the spiritual darkness around us is often very discouraging. I often read biographies of missionaries and it is encouraging and reminds me why we are on the field and that we must continue to be faithful in our calling to spread the Gospel.
Dear Chantel, I was so blessed to read this article that you wrote. YWAM Heroes of the Faith books were ones I read to my two daughters as they were in elementary school. I am now home schooling my son 11, who is still learning to discover a love for reading. Therefore reading aloud to him is one way I’ve found to reach him as well as the YWAM audio books. I was wondering of what you have recommended here, are there any in particular you feel would be able to be read aloud to an elementary age child? Also, I have teen daughters one coming home from a YWAM trip away, and will most likely be willing and even inspired by a favorite biography of a woman missionary. My daughter has had a particular interest in women’s concerns: birthing, advocacy for women via the pro-life movement. The other daughter seems to only be willing to read books that are super fast action packed books. Any recommendations you would like to give, would be so very, very welcome and appreciated. More than anything, I believe the books about people being obedient to God, encourage children to grow in their walk with the Lord. It is in my heart that this be furthered for my children. I am printing out your article, but age recommendations is the part I am trying to extrapolate from your recommendations. God bless you, and thank you for sharing !!!!
Have you studied the life of hymn writer and pastor George Matheson? 1842-1906 he was blind from his youth, but pastored 31 years in Scotland. Wrote the hymn O love that will not let me go. He was engaged as young man but the lady broke it off because of his blindness. He never married. The hymn express how Gods grace can overcome great sorrows and give joy in life. Similar to Fanny Crosby.
I’m so glad to see this post. My childhood was very similar to yours in the fact that we grew up reading missionary lives. Books like Bruchko, Brother Andrew, Gladys Aylward, Adoniram Judson and many others were among those books we read and re-read many times. I remember how inspired I used to be when I read those lives. I praise God for the lives of his servants and hope that he would use us too in his work.
The Grace of Almighty on these lovely missionaries who perished and given life for God’s Gospel will make our soul fresh and make our hearts multiply in Faith.
Loved reading about these men and women who had a call to go into the world, to tell the good news of our Saviour and Lord and how God made away back to Him through His Son Jesus Christ. I wanted to be a Missioary, but some health problems that are life threatening kept me from it. So I asked God to allow me to become a pastor. As of now I been a Pastor for 27 years. God has also allowed me to do some short time mission work. The one name I would have liked to see on this list is Ms. Logged Moon, she was called to be a Missionary to China. God blessed the work she was called to, and saw many, many people come to Jesus and she also helped to set up a hospital and lives where savied that way as well as Savied through the Blood of Jesus Christ. She gave all she had even what little she had. She became sick and had to return home back the USA. She died before reaching home. She died at Sea. I hope others feel as I do and that her name belongs on this earthly list. Her name I believe is in a great Book, The Book of Life put there by Jesus. May God Bless all Missionaries and the Workers in the Fields where Christ has each of us working. May His Harvest be great!!!
Excellent. I would have also added William Carey – Father of modern missions.
Hi, I also admire Jackie Pullinger – missionary in Hong kong since 1966 at 22 years of age. She lead many drug addicts in Kowloon wall city, which is now a park. Thank you for writing about the missionaries. Their lives are refreshing and inspiring to me. They are the hands and feet of Christ.
I would recommend a Missionary Adventure, a story of a man that is born a Jew and the son of a Jewish Rabbi in Poland. After his conversion being excommunicated and eventually going to Brazil. Its one of my favorites. Missionary Solomon Ginsburg.
Ah! What a beautiful collection of missionary stories. I will happily read every single book that you put on this list.

I recently found out that Gracia Burnham’s sister is married to the brother of my Pastor’s wife.
Have you read any biographies about John and Betty Stam? My grandmother originally told me about the. She was always encouraging me to read missionary stories.
Chantel, I read every word of this. So fascinating and rich. I recognize some of these from biographies I’ve read, homeschool curriculum books (A Chance to Die! God’s Smuggler!), etc. But thank you for introducing me to new names.
My Church is full of former Missionaries. We also support quite a few Missionaries at our Church as well. I guess because of the former Missionaries in our congregation is the reason why our Church body is so missionary minded. Quite a few of the Missionaries whom we support, come to speak at Church and give us updates on what’s going on and how we can pray. When I give my tithe for Church, I mark the envelope for the money I’m giving to go to the Missionaries whom we support. My folks and I receive newsletters from a couple Missionaries whom we have become friends with. Several people from my Church are involved in the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship, and the past couple years, I’ve been teaching the Missionary Stories. My favorite one was the first story I taught. It was about a Missionary couple who went to minister in Korea in the exact area where I was born! Their names are John and Lois Cook, and the Director for Child Evangelism Fellowship put me in contact with the Cooks! I was so thrilled, and we’ve been in contact ever since. The Cooks’ story starts out when the husband, John is little and it goes through his growing up years. It also goes through his young adult years when he comes to the Lord and meets his wife, Lois, and they get married. Then they feel the Lord calling them to go to Korea right after the Korean war. Then it ends up with their time in Korea, what they do there and everything that happens to them. Both John and Lois are still alive, and I got to talk to Lois on the phone, and I’ve received several letters and notes from them in the mail. I also love all the stand by Missionary stories too! I especially love Amy Carmichael’s story. My favorite story in Amy’s growing up years is when she really wants blue eyes because her parents have blue eyes. Amy’s eyes are brown, and she doesn’t like the fact that they’re brown. Amy prays one night before bed that God would give her (Amy) blue eyes when she wakes up in the morning. Morning comes and Amy gets out of bed, pulls a chair over to her dresser (chest of drawers) and climbs up and looks in the mirror, hoping to see blue eyes. What color eyes does she see staring back at her?……Not blue. Brown eyes. Amy is upset and tells her Mom that God did not answer Amy’s prayers. Amy’s Mom says, “Yes, he did, and his answer was no”. Then later when Amy goes to India, the people have brown eyes, and someone tells her, “You’re lucky that your eyes are brown and not blue”. Amy sees that God gave her brown eyes for a purpose.
Another missionary story that I got to teach in Good News Club, which is with Child Evangelism Fellowship, is about a Missionary by the name of, Richard Row. He was a Missionary to the Isnag people (forgive me, but I do not remember the area where they lived). Richard Row got to know and became friends with a little boy named, Leonard Pugyao. They would sit together everyday and learn each other’s languages. Leonard went by Nard for short, and Nard was to the age where he was supposed to be going to school. He started school, but it was hard for him to understand and such, so he would go to spend time with Richard. Nard’s Dad found out that Nard wasn’t going to school, so the Dad kept Nard home to work their little farm. Richard had learned the Isnag language and was translating the book of John into the Isnag language, and gave Nard his very own copy of the Bible to read. Nard was 14 when he got the gospel of John in his language. He accepted the Lord at that time too. Richard was thrilled and then he invited Nard to go to go via air plane and go to high school. Nard worked with Richard to translate the new testament into the Isnag language, and he got to work on the planes that were nearby. One of the Pilots suggested that Nard could learn to actually fly the planes. Nard was kind of unsure, but he got the necessary training for it. Nard also told the Lord that he would do whatever God wanted him to do, and that’s when he decided that he would become a Pilot. After the training, Nard loaded up the new testament Bibles and took them back to his village. Nard’s sister was there when he landed and Nard asked her if she knew what was in the box. She said no, and he told her that it was the new testament in their native language! Nard also was marveling over God’s goodness in sending Richard Row to witness to the Isnag people. Nard is also still alive. He keeps in contact with our Director of Good News Club. Richard Row has since passed away though, but Richard is home with the Lord.
Anyway, these are my two favorite stories about Missionaries. Thanks for sharing your favorites with all of us! Blessings! Bethany I too have grown up on Missionary stories. I still read them from time to time, and I’m introduced to other ones that are new to me when I teach them at Good News Club during the school year.
What an amazing list! I, too, grew up on missionary stories. I devoured several of the heroes of the faith series they have for younger readers. But one of my all-time favorites was With Daring Faith .
And I see a few in this list that I’m not familiar with. I’ll have to add them to my reading list.
Thanks so much for sharing!

Virgin Mary statue reportedly crying in Mexico town sparks questions about potential miracle
Posted: November 18, 2023 | Last updated: November 18, 2023
A statue of the Virgin Mary in the Mexican state of Colima that is reportedly weeping tears has drawn crowds of onlookers and questions about a potential miracle.
The statue was first noticed "crying" in October — but videos of the statue's purported tears gained traction on social media in mid-November.
The statue, which is encased in glass, is named the Virgin of Dolores. It's located in the town of El Chanal, which is near the city of Colima, the capital of the state with the same name.
VIRGIN MARY STATUE WITHSTANDS EARTHQUAKE IN TURKEY AS CATHEDRAL COLLAPSES: 'INSPIRING SYMBOL OF HOPE'
"Dolores" translates to "sorrow" or pain."
In Catholicism , one of the titles of the Virgin Mary is Our Lady of Sorrows, inspired by a prophecy in the Gospel of Luke.

"So, a couple of tears started flowing," eyewitness Víctor Ramos told the news outlet CEN.
The statue's eyes reddened as she "cried," claimed Ramos.
"Similarly, when we cry, and our eyes become red, the same happens to the image," Ramos said.
WHAT ARE ANGEL NUMBERS AND WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP SEEING THEM?
Perhaps the statue's tears were a reaction to the "violence rates that are being experienced here in the state of Colima, also here in the community," said Ramos.
The U.S. Department of State is right now warning against traveling to the entire state of Colima due to "crime and kidnapping."
In 2022, the city of Colima had a homicide rate of 181.94 homicides per 100,000 residents, said Mexico's Citizens’ Council for Public Safety and Criminal Justice. This was the highest in the world.
Ever since videos of the supposedly crying statue went viral on social media platforms, the church has experienced a slew of visitors hoping to see the crying statue for themselves.
Two Catholic priests told Fox News Digital that they were hesitant to endorse any devotion to the supposedly miraculous occurrence.
"These phenomena have to be subject to the judgment of the Church , which usually comes from the local bishop after an investigation and hearing experts on the matter," said Fr. Thomas Petri, O.P., president of the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC.
"Often, there's a natural explanation for these sorts of things," he said.
But even after an investigation by Church authorities in which no natural reason is found, "Catholics are not obliged to believe in these phenomena," said Petri.
AS CATHOLIC CHURCH FACES PRECARIOUS CULTURAL TIME, BISHOP ROBERT BARRON OF MINNESOTA MODELS THOUGHTFUL FAITH
"However, we can always be grateful for any event or occurrence that causes people to pause and think about God and heavenly realities," he added.
Fr. Paul Hedman, a priest of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and a self-described "skeptic" on these types of phenomena, also urged caution.
"People should remain indifferent and not get too excited until the Church is able to investigate," he said.
A crying statue, said Hedman, could be caused by something such as condensation, or "outright fraud by those looking to make a buck."
"I would generally encourage people to maintain a healthy skepticism — the truth will come forward, and it is better to be cautious than to pour your soul into something that turns out to be inauthentic," he said.

Statues that appear to be crying or experiencing other such unusual things are an uncommon but not unheard of phenomenon — and is not limited to Christianity.
In 1995, India experienced a full-blown frenzy after it was reported that statues of the Hindu god Ganesh appeared to be drinking milk, The Independent reported at the time.
In September of that year, rumors began swirling throughout India that statues of Ganesh were miraculously drinking milk that was offered on spoons, said The Independent.
It is a Hindu custom to offer food and drinks to statues of gods.
Milk sales in New Delhi rose by 30% over the days that followed as curious Indians tried to see if their statues would also drink milk, said The Independent.
Scientists later said that the statues' supposed consumption of milk was actually a natural phenomenon known as "capillary action."

Charlie Brown's Christmas Miracle: The Inspiring, Untold Story of the Making of a Holiday Classic Hardcover – October 17, 2023
- Hardcover $25.54 19 Used from $19.84 24 New from $19.36
Purchase options and add-ons
Discover the inspiring, unknown, against-all-odds story of how the classic animated holiday special A Charlie Brown Christmas almost never made it on to television. Professor and cultural historian Michael Keane reveals much in this nostalgia-inducing book packed with original research and interviews. Keane compellingly shows that the ultimate broadcast of the Christmas special—given its incredibly tight five-month production schedule and the decidedly unfavorable reception it received by the skeptical network executives who first screened it—was nothing short of a miracle. Keane explains why the show, despite its technical shortcomings, has become an uplifting and enduring triumph embraced by millions of families every Christmas season, even more than fifty years after its premiere.
This gripping and joyful behind-the-scenes story of how the creators of A Charlie Brown Christmas struggled to bring the program to life will also help readers (and loyal fans) understand how America’s favorite Christmas special changed our popular culture forever. Keane masterfully weaves the momentous events of 1965 (the turbulent year of the program’s production) into his story, providing critical context for a profound new understanding of the program’s famous climactic scene, Linus’s spot-lit soliloquy answering the question repeatedly posed by Charlie Brown—"Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?”

From the Publisher
A note from the author:
"This book tells the inspiring, against-all-odds story of how A Charlie Brown Christmas overcame production difficulties, an incredibly tight six-month delivery schedule, and the skepticism of television network executives to become the most popular animated Christmas special in history. The ultimately successful making of A Charlie Brown Christmas , as well as its enthusiastic embrace by audiences for more than fifty years, was the culmination of an improbable series of events...
This is the story of Charlie Brown’s Christmas miracle."
– Michael Keane
