This is a fascinating story about Dr. Nelson Bell, his wife Virginia, and their children. Dr. Bell served many years as a medical missionary in China, practicing medicine, preaching, and raising a family under the most difficult conditions. His daughter Ruth would become the wife of evangelist Dr. Billy Graham.
I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Bell preach and meeting him twice after his retirement and return to the US. He was a remarkable man. An excellent example of what one man can accomplish when he has faith in God, determination, and a love for his fellow man.
