Robert A. Jaffray was a giant among the pioneer missionary statesmen of the early 20th century. Heir to the Toronto Globe - one of Canada's leading newspapers- he turned his back on wealth and power to serve in China. Responsible for an ever-growing work there, he simultaneously opened French Indochina to The Christian and Missionary Alliance. Later he orchestrated the missionary effort in Indonesia, today the largest Alliance field overseas. Jaffray was a missionary general. His keen administrating, voluminous writing and incessant strategizing made him a natural leader.
Aided by his wife Minnie, he never allowed poor health- diabetes and a heart condition - to deter him from his work for the Lord. Committed to missions and the people of Southeast Asia to the end, Jaffray died a Martyr in a Japanese prison camp during World War 2. His story serves as an example of how God can use one person- limitations and all- to bring thousands to Himself.
