I have long been an admirer of Dorothy Carey, wife of the famous William. I know her husband gets the plaudits as the ‘father of modern missions’ but in the midst of amazing suffering I find this woman admirable. I am not saying she was ‘right’, and she obviously caused many difficulties for her husband and family. But she paid a high price for the Gospel and sacrificed in ways we modern Christians could not imagine. We should thank God for such saints.
In case you are not familiar with her story Lex Lozides has posted a brief article on her at his blog, it is well worth reading.
