GRANNY BRAND

This is the story of Evelyn Harris Brand, born in 1879 in England. She went to India as a missionary around 1909. About 3 years later, she married fellow missionary Jesse Brand and they began pioneering work in the southern mountains of India- the "Mountains of Death"- dispensing medical treatment, building roads and schools, adopting abandoned children and teaching about Christ. They served together for 16 years until Jesse died of blackwater fever. After her husband's death, Evelyn continued the work God had given her until her death in 1974 at the age of 95.

Granny Brand was written by Dorothy Clarke Wilson and was published by Christian Herald Books, 1976.
MAY 25 - JULY 14

THE HIDING PLACE is a 1971 book on the life of Corrie ten Boom, written by ten Boom together with John and Elizabeth Sherrill. It was later made into a film of the same name, along with a comic book adaptation. The title refers to both the physical hiding place where the ten Boom family secreted Jews from the Nazis, and also to the Scriptural message from Psalm 119:114, which states, "Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word."

HINDS FEET ON HIGH PLACES

Hannah Hurnard's Hinds' Feet on High Places is a family classic. Hurnard writes with elegance and interest, telling a parable or allegory of Christ shepherding a terrified child on the journey of faith. Her encounter with her two guides, Suffering and Trials and Christ's explanation of their purpose in her life, teach a life lesson every person, regardless of age, must learn.
MARCH 2 - MARCH 21

ADONIRAM JUDSON

This is the story of America's first foreign missionary. Adoniram Judson (1788-1850) spent 38 years in Burma- now known as Myanmar. He was not only a missionary, but also a preacher, writer and composer of 2 hymns.

Adoniram and Ann Judson went through many hard times in Burma. The poor food, unbearable heat, and widespread diseases made life difficult. Two of their babies died in the terrible climate, and both Ann and Adoniram were imprisoned during the war with Britain. But when Adoniram Judson died in 1850, there were 7,000 baptized believers, 63 Christian congregations and 163 missionaries in Burma. To this day, over 150 years later, his Burmese Bible translation is still in use.

JANUARY 21 - MARCH 1

THE INDOMITABLE MR. O

Jesse Irvin Overholtzer grew up in a religious family and at the age of 12, was convicted of his own sin and sought counsel from his mother. He was told he was too young. It wasn't until Overholtzer was in college that he heard the Gospel and trusted Christ as his Saviour. Later as a pastor, he realized children can be saved while he was reading one of Charles Spurgeon's sermons and searching the Scriptures. In 1937, at the age of 60, Mr. Overholtzer began the ministry of Child Evangelism Fellowship, Inc.

This book is written by Norman Rohrer.
DECEMBER 7- 31

PRISONER OF HOPE

In 1954, Jesse and Nettie Miller founded the Overseas Christian Servicemen's Centers Inc. Now called Cadence International, based in Englewood, the organization fosters open-home ministry to servicemen overseas and in the United States, boasting dozens of chapters around the world. The couple settled in Denver in 1957. For the next several decades, Jesse gave inspirational speeches drawing on his POW experience and his faith, and the couple traveled around the world helping to set up new servicemen's centers. Jesse passed away on February 22, 2001, at the age of 80.

Jesse Miller called his autobiography "Prisoner of Hope." "I was a Prisoner of Hope -- not a prisoner of despair, or of adverse circumstance and unfulfilled ambitions, nor a prisoner of deep trial and daily pain and injustice. But a Prisoner of Hope," he wrote. "My great daily expectation was that of deliverance in the midst of all things being against me. As a prisoner of war, there was no physical fortress to which I could return. All safety and security was cut off from me. No human association or powerful government, no plan of escape could provide the security I needed. But there was always my fortress, my God, to whom I returned."
