A London Sparrow: The Inspiring and True Story of Gladys Aylward by Phyllis Thompson


Everyone loves a story of an unlikely person overcoming insurmountable odds. We also love reading tales about those who have been used by God in extraordinary ways. The story of Gladys Aylward comprises both. An unmarried, four-foot, ten-inch London parlor maid, unfit and uneducated, rejected by the China Inland Mission as a missionary, was yet greatly used by God to reach the lost in China.


Miss Aylward’s adventures were many, including journeying alone from London through Russia to China, stopping a riot in a Chinese prison, and escorting hundreds of children through a war zone!
