Free Vintage Graphics - Missionary Quotes

I have a lovely new printable for you to download if you'd like. It features three different quotes by three missionaries - Hudson Taylor, Corrie Ten Boom, and Elisabeth Elliot. You'll see an example below of what the printable looks like, it's in pdf format and the link is available at the end of this post.

Hudson Taylor (1852-1905) was a missionary to China and founded China Inland Mission (CIM). Hudson trusted God completely for all aspects of his mission work. The featured quote is:

When I cannot read,
when I cannot think,
when I cannot even pray, 
I can trust. 
~ Hudson Taylor ~

Corrie Ten BoomCorrie, her father and other family members helped many Jewish people escape the Holocaust during WWII. Corrie and her sister were sent to a concentration camp, where he sister died and she was later released due to a clerical error. She continued to serve the Lord. One of  history's greatest women of faith. The featured quote is:

When God allows extraordinary trials for his people,
He prepares extraordinary comforts for them. 
~ Corrie Ten Boom ~ 

Elisabeth Elliot - Missionary, author and so much more. One of the top influential Christian women in history. Her first husband, Jim Elliot was killed in 1956 along with other missionaries while attempting to make contact with the Auca people. The featured quote is:

Help me to receive grace, 
to keep a quiet heart,
sure that I am, in this very moment,
held in the everlasting arms. 
~ Elisabeth Elliot ~

My friend Michele, who blogs at Living Our Days, has probably read every one of Elisabeth books and frequently write about her. Here is one of her posts about Elisabeth's new book Suffering is Never for Nothing
Knowing God in the Midst of Our Pain
