Mission Thoughts on Monday - Burma / China

Dr. Mason, of Burma, once wanted a teacher to visit and labour among a warlike tribe. He asked his converted boatman, Shapon, if he would go, and told him he would have only four rupees a month as a teacher, where as he was earning fifteen as a boatman. After praying over the matter, he returned to Doctor Mason, and the following conversation ensued - -

“Well Shapon, said the doctor, “what have you decided - - will you go for four rupees a month?”

“No, teacher,” replied Shapon, “I will not go for four rupees a month, but I will go for Christ.”

UNDAUNTED SERVICE: A one-legged schoolteacher from Scotland came to J. Hudson Taylor to offer himself for service in china. “Why do you, with one leg, think of going as a missionary?” asked Taylor.

Because I do not see those with two legs going, so I must,” replied George Scott. He was accepted.
