At the age of 21, Hudson Taylor ventured on a dangerous sea voyage to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of China., demonstrating this faith he talked of. Why would a young man give up a promising future to venture into an alien country, let alone one torn apart by war? Would the Chinese accept him and would God bless his vision? In the mid-nineteenth century, there were few Christian missionaries in China and not many more Chinese Christians. Hudson Taylor was so moved by the spiritual needs of the Chinese people that he obeyed God’s call and dedicated his life to taking the Gospel to the Chinese, founding the China Inland Mission.
