Kari Torjesen Malcolm (2004): We signed Away Our Lives: how one family gave everything for the Gospel


Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord...

He is like a tree planted by the water,

That sends out its roots by the stream,

And does not fear when the heat comes,

For its leaves remain green,

And is not anxious in the year of drought,

For it does not cease to bear fruit.


Why Peter Torjesen  (Pastor Ye Yung Ching, Evergreen Leaf) gave himself to Christianity and longing to spread the good news to the people of China ?


In 1909, when he was only 17: he offered all his money and wrote on a piece of paper, Og mit liv (“And my life”) after a special church meeting about all the places in China that had never heard of Jesus Christ.

His Motto for China, 1918, Philippians 1:20 (KJV):

“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that is nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.”

Stormie Omartian (2002): The power of a praying woman

Most women want to grow spiritually and have a deep, strong, vital, life-changing, faith-filled walk with God according to a survey taken by the author. We can only develop this kind of intimate relationship with Him by spending time alone with Him through prayers. The author shows us in her book various reasons to pray for different goals e.g. for the work we do, for walking in obedience, for taking us deeper in His Word etc. She also uses Bible verses to support and strengthen her advice to us regarding prayers. A “sample” of how we should pray is also provided. This book has served to inspire me to pray for every aspect of my life. It is what God wants us and tells us to do - the ultimate reason to pray.
