• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

Margaret Barber

1865 ~ 1930

Barber, who went to China as an Anglican and later became an independent missionary with informal ties to the Plymouth Brethren, is best known for her influence on Nee Tuo-sheng (Watchman Nee). Stationed in Foochow (Fuzhou) along the south China coast, she and others regularly taught a Bible class at White Teeth Rock. Here she had contact with Nee at a very formative time of his life, when he studied for a time at Anglican Trinity College. As a result of her own spiritual struggles, she was able to refer him to books by J. N. Darby, Jeanne Guyon, T. Austin Sparks, and others that had been of help to her. She also had impact on many other Chinese men and women, the most noted of whom was Leland Wang (Wang Zai), who later became a Chinese leader.
