About-

Born on a farm in Canada, Jonathan Goforth's ambition as a young boy was to study and become a politician. Little did he know then what the future held in store. At the age of eighteen he was converted to Christianity and immediately became interested in missionary work. After attending Knox College in Canada, he set out for China with his wife, Rosalind.

Many hardships and trials followed. Their first child died in the spring of the following year. Others were later claimed by malaria and menengitis. In 1900 the Goforths, along with others, had to flee before the Boxer uprising. Their escape was a miracle in itself.

Goforth of China is the amazing story of a man with unusual vision and determination.
