Robert Morrison: Bury Me in China

Missionaries produced at Gosport were not timid, academic Christians—they were gladiators knowingly, entering the ring of the beasts. They didn’t run from death; they waited in line for their turn.”

While working on our project, “Chasing Legacy,” we were inspired by uncovering old and obscure notes, letters, and writings from missionaries. These discoveries led us to write about Robert Morrison. Surprisingly, there has never been a complete biography on him, and nothing has been written about him in the past 100 years. Even mentions of the “Father of missions to China” lacked crucial information. This presented us with an opportunity, commission, and obligation to write his biography. So, like a dog with a bone, Eugene diligently researched the history and story of Robert Morrison.

In missions, God often takes what may appear as tragedies and defeats and transforms them into inspiring and victorious events. Come and listen to a different way of defining success, one that may differ from how many define it today.

Episode 716: Bury Me In China

I am a Messianic Jewish believer that felt the tug of the L-rd towards the unreached. I decided I would go to China. My love for the Chinese people grew while I was there, but when I learned of the Back to Jerusalem movement, I knew the L-rd wanted me to be proclaiming His gospel message to the unreached people between China and Jerusalem. Let’s unite and complete the great commission. We need to accept the challenge Jesus has given us so that we can feel the exhilaration of victory.
