• “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot

    • womenof7 says:

      I am not sure. It's possible. Lilias was a missionary in Algeria in the late 1800's to the early 1900's. She remained single. Is there more information on A. M. Trotter some where?
