Missionary trio Mildred Cable (1878-1952) and Evangeline and Francesca French were the first Englishwomen to cross the infamous Gobi Desert, living for years among the diverse peoples of northwestern China in places few Europeans ever reached. Educated and rich, Mildred Cable once planned to be a concert pianist. Instead she served the people of China through wars and revolutions. Whether speaking the truth to a brutal general who held her prisoner, educating generations of Chinese girls, or building self-sustaining Christian communities, Mildred followed Jesus with grit, determination, intelligence, and faith.
