Summary

When Lillian Trasher (1887-1961) founded Egypt's first orphanage, others thought that a lone American woman with no means of support would surely be killed or starve to death. But Lillian - certain of God's guidance - stood by her earlier promise to Him, "If ever I can do anything for You, just let me know - and I'll do it."

In the midst of poverty, war, and deadly epidemics, Lillian faced each day with a heart of trust, modeling the life she hoped her children would someday live in their own homes. During fifty tumultuous years, the Mother of the Nile cared for thousands of desperate children, with unwavering faith that God does indeed look after the orphans.

My heart sank every time I listened to the magnificent story of Lillian Trasher. Her unwavering faith in God is a testimony to the truth in the Bible that the Lord indeed provides. A great listen and I highly recommend this book and this series for anyone who wants to be a missionary!

Loved this story--Lillian lived her life completely by faith and obedience to the Lord. Her compassion and love for others was a true testimony of her genuine faith as was her life of trust.

Great way to introduce us to missionaries.

Was inspired by her great faith and how God always provided. Have listened to about 7 of these stories and love them all.

As always, the Benges' outdid themselves!

The story of Lillian Trasher is out of this world, because God's ways are always above the norm. From start to finish, I was mesmerized. I googled her orphanage and it's still going on, what a legacy!

Encouraging and inspiring

This story of Lillian’s life was inspiring not only to my children, but also for myself as a mother. This story will challenge you to truly pray without ceasing as Lillian did throughout her years. It makes you thirsty for the word, and makes you want to draw closer to the Lord. Wonderfully narrated, easy to follow. We didn’t want to turn it off.
