The World – The paper was too thin, Sept 20, 2021

A young lady in distant Australia through some unusual accident had lost both her lower limbs and her arms to the shoulders. As she lay helpless, the light of Jesus shone into her soul. She desired that in some manner she might be a blessing to others. She conceived the extraordinary plan of having her father make for her shoulder a pad that would carry a fountain pen. By the painful process of moving her body she learned to write. She then started to write letters about Christ to the prisoners in the national penitentiary. Months passed by, but no word was received concerning her letters. She began to grow discouraged but finally a letter from the warden came, asking if it would be possible to use heavier paper in writing her letters, for when they were passed from hand to hand among the fifteen hundred prisoners, the thinner paper wore out too soon. The result of this service to the Master was that during the years of her life by this means alone hundreds of prisoners were brought to Christ.
 
It is not how much we do, but how faithful we are in accomplishing what we are able to do,
that brings the reward of the Christian’s service.
