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.

An encouraging account of faith

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!

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.

Need more!

We enjoy playing the audible version with Kindle on the TV. We hope you will continue writing & making Audible versions. When we finish & rate, it us for Kindle. I had to go back & rate all the previous ones we've done over the years. Lillian was excellent!

another fabulous Benge read

I love this series and preview each one before allowing my 12 yr old daughter to listen. I have not found a one of the Christian Heroes books I felt was inappropriate for her yet and she enjoys them almost as much as I do. This one, as all the others so far, did not disappoint. reminded me some of George Muller and Gladys Alward- so if you liked those, you will enjoy this one as well.
