Mountain Rain: A Biography of James O. Fraser (Pioneer Missionary to China)
Author: Eileen Fraser Crossman
Pages: 265, Paperback
“Much of the spiritual teaching one hears does not seem to work. But I found that the Cross of Jesus Christ worked. I felt like a man perishing of thirst, to whom some beautiful, clear cold water had begun to flow … I had so much to learn! It seemed as if God was saying: ‘You are crying to me to do a big work among the Lisu; I am wanting to do a big work in you yourself.'”
James Fraser was only 22 years old when he abandoned a promising engineering career and went to China. At first sight of the Lisu tribespeople of Yunnan province he felt an immediate affection for them. For the rest of his life, he traveled on horseback over rugged mountains, laboring to bring the Lisu the good news of Christ. Packed with personal letters, insightful anecdotes, and riveting stories of missionary life in China, this superb biography by his daughter shines with God’s constant faithfulness and power over evil.
