Amy Carmichael on the Christian Walk


Amy Carmichael on the Christian Walk

No Christian man or woman was ever meant to walk on the natural plane. There is no provision made for such a walk. Always, God’s promise is that His child will break through and live and endure as if he were seeing only the workings of the invisible world, not fixed on physical senses.

Amy Carmichael

Amy Carmichael (1867 – 1951) served as a missionary for 55 years without furlough. God mightily used her despite her weak physical condition. She struggled with neuralgia. The last twenty years of her life she was bed-ridden. She wrote 37 books which have inspired others to pursue missionary service.

Amy was born in Ireland. When her family moved to Belfast, Amy started a ministry to the poor girls working in a mill. Her church was not accepting of her girls, but God was blessing. She received donations to build Welcome Hall to accommodate 500. The Welcome Hall is thriving today as Welcome Evangelical Church.

Amy is best known for rescuing boys and girls from temple prostitution. She started an orphanage and mission in Dohnavur, India in 1901.

India outlawed temple prostitution in 1948.
