Just as there were 12 baskets of fragments left over from the feeding of the 5,000, so the notes and letters that Amy Carmicheal left behind provide basketfuls of spiritual nourishment. Come feast on these delightful morsels from the life of one who was truly abandoned to God.
Amy Carmichael was the eldest daughter of a large Christ-centered family in Millisle, Ireland. She was impressed at an early age that nothing is important but that which is eternal. This understanding proved to be the foundation for her service to the Lord among the mill workers of Ireland, the Japanese briefly, and then in India where she began her ministry to children in 1895 and where she remained until her death in 1951.
Take comfort in notes and letters Amy Carmicheal left behind, which provide basketfuls of spiritual nourishment for the Christ-owned soul.
