About the Book

An ordinary man found that serving a great God is always a rewarding life.  He saw lives changed from the bondage and hopelessness of sin to lives of great victory and peace.  His calling took him to dangerous places where he faced wolves, bandits, guns, bombs, and even being lost in the mountains at night.  He faced poverty, famine, and the death of many loved ones, and he found that God was sufficient for each day.  This man was Knute Hjalmar Ekblad, missionary to North China in the early 1900's.  His faith in his great God is contagious to any reader.
