Amy Carmichael with childrenAmy Carmichael - A Life Abandoned To God, by Sam Wellman, is a biography found in The Fellowship library. It weaves Amy's own words, poetry and humor into the amazing story of Amy's life. She championed the cause of mill girls in 19th century Ireland. Amy took this ministry with her to Japan, where she continued to focus on mill girls. Most of her 86 years were spent in India. Dohnavur Fellowship housed thousands of orphans. Even with limited mobility during the last two decades of her remarkable life, she persevered in her passion to bring young Indians into God's kingdom. Today orphans in far-away India often face human trafficking. Just as in Amy's day, many Indian children live in wrenching poverty and are prone to abuse in a variety of virtual slave labor. Amy was less than 100 pounds and an ordinary woman. But she obeyed God and lived an extraordinary life.
