Rescuer of Precious Gems
Amy Carmichael stood on the deck of the steamer, waving good-bye once again to her old friend Robert Wilson. How could she have known she would never see him or the British Isles again? Amy was certain God had called her to India. Indeed! India would be her home for the rest of her life. Her life was one of simple obedience to God, regardless of the consequences. Driven by love, sustained by faith and determination, this woman from Northern Ireland defied the barriers of India's caste system.

Amy sounds to have been such a loving, generous, kind and caring person who, even as a very young lady, began meetings for different groups of desperate people, both when she was in Northern Ireland and in England.
Her hopes of serving Jesus in China were dashed due to her health having suffered badly when she was living in english slums helping impoverished women; and even an attempt to serve in Japan was cut short for the same reason.
Following her return to England to be beside her adopted father, Robert Wilson, in his great health need, she responded to a request to go to work in a mission hospital in the pleasant climate of Bangalore, South India, which country she would never leave.
Women and children turned to Amy, and little girls were given to her, and rescued, such that before long, she was mother to over 100 girls. Then boys began to be sent, and she soon had 80 of them, too.
At age 63, a terrible fall caused Amy to be mainly incapacitated and bed-ridden for the remaining 20 years of her life, but this did not prevent her from continuing in the leadership of her family from her bed, regardless.
This is a wonderful testimony of a precious life dedicated to lovingly serving Jesus and the suffering people in India, which I shall look forward to re-reading again and again.
