Clip 9 from Adoniram Judson

March 23, 2010

Missionary life was hard. It still is. But all things considered, it used to be much harder.

After the death of her dear, and only friend Harriet (which in the first months of the journey, Harriet not even reaching their destination), Nancy Judson wrote,

I am left behind, still to endure the trials of a missionary life. O that this severe dispensation may be sanctified to my soul and that I may be prepared to follow my dear departed sister.

Nancy was distraught, let alone Newell Rice who had tried to nurse his pregnant wife Harriet to health on shore for a few weeks, having taking the emergency respite from the ship travel. He boarded the ship once again, this time childless and wifeless.
