Hudson Taylor By Shane Glaser

Hudson Taylor was born on May 21 1832 in England. He had no siblings and his parents were Amelia and James Taylor.
At age 15 Hudson Taylor became skeptical and worldly and his eyes became weak because of gaslight and murk from the weather. At age 17 Hudson Taylor started studying mandarin, medicine, and immersing himself ever deeper in the bible.

Had a wife named Maria and eight children but then his wife died at age 33 and half of his kids died before they turned ten and then he married Jennie Faulding.

He died on June 3 1905 in Changsha Huna, China.
He translated the Bible to Chinese, recruited more missionaries, increasing the missionaries in China by 25%, and created the CIM China Inland Missions. Hudson Taylor went on missions in China because his parents and he also went to China to live and he learned China.

He achieved to reach a lot of people in china and is still inspiring 1,000s of Christians today.

1 Peter 3:15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to every one who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverance

"China is not to be won for Christ by quiet, ease loving men and women in the stamp of men and women we need is such a will put Jesus, China, (and) souls first and foremost in everything and at every time even life itself must be secondary". Hudson Taylor

He battled depression all of his life both from the way he drove himself and of immensity of the dusk. Even after thousands of conversions there was about 400 million Chinese unreached. At one point he sank towards despair and awful temptation even to end his own life.
