Isobel Kuhn and Rosalind Goforth

Isobel Kuhn

God has permitted the writings of two well know Canadian women missionaries to remain in print for our benefit today.  Not only were these women deeply involved in Christian ministry, they were both gifted in their ability to record the lessons God taught them along the way. 

 

Rosalind Goforth, born in England, raised in Montreal, and saved as a child, was attracted to her future husband, Jonathan, because of his spiritual mindedness. God granted them almost fifty years of missionary service together in China. In Mrs. Goforth’s easy to read conversational style we discover the joys as well as the trials of missionary service.  Rosalind Goforth is poignantly forthright in admitting her own struggles and spiritual rebellion and the consequences of her attitudes. 

 

Isobel Kuhn grew up in Vancouver and was saved through God’s clear and dramatic working in her life as a young adult.   Isobel Miller and John Kuhn both left for China after attending Bible college. After their marriage they began their life work of ministry in Asia.  Separation, serious illness, war, disappointment, privation and death were an almost continual part of their lives.  Through these difficulties Isobel Kuhn saw the Lord’s guiding hand of love and blessing.  Her books reflect a heart that works through trials and sees a loving Father ordering all things.  Though her life was cut short by cancer, Isobel’s legacy of writing remained to encourage us.
