M. E. Barber served the Lord as a missionary to
China from 1896 until her death in 1930. During the first period of her
service she was associated with a missionary society, but in the second
period, which began in 1909, she went out on her own, trusting the Lord
to supply all her needs.
Though she is not well known, her service to the
Lord was with great effect; Watchman Nee testified that it was this
sister who raised him up in the Lord. We have much to learn from her
life. As a valuable addition, this book includes her complete poems.
