Gladys Aylward: The Small Woman With a Great God DVD
[DVD-GA]



At barely five feet tall, Gladys Aylward may have been small in stature, but she was a giant of conviction. Even Hollywood was amazed at her story, making a movie about her, entitled The Inn of the Sixth Happiness.

This fascinating documentary presents the events of Gladys’s life, chronicled by Carol Purves, author of Chinese Whispers: The Gladys Aylward Story. Included are photographs, illustrations, and recordings of Gladys’s own voice.

Young Gladys sensed a calling from God to leave London and go to minister in China. She worked as a parlormaid for many years until she had saved enough money for her passage. In 1930 she boarded a train outbound from London, and after many weeks and harrowing situations across land and sea, she finally reached her destination.

In China she assisted aging missionary, Jeannie Lawson. Together they opened an inn for mule drivers and told them stories about Jesus. After Mrs. Lawson’s death, Gladys began to take in unwanted children, eventually gathering about 100 of them. Upon Japan’s full force invasion of China, Gladys and her 100 children traveled for days on foot across the mountains to safety. Gladys continued her work with children until her death in 1970.

See how this ordinary woman experienced the extraordinary, simply because she said “yes” to God.
