Isobel Kuhn questioned whether God even existed. Mary Slessor grew up in a slum with an alcoholic father. Joni Eareckson broke her neck during a diving accident and Corrie Ten Boom just lived with her family in a little watch shop in Haarlem, Holland. What is so special about these girls and how did they change their world?

Find out how:
• Isobel Kuhn believed in God and obeyed his call to travel to Asia to tell the Lisu people about God
• Mary Slessor put herself through evening classes and eventually became one of the first white women to venture into the interior of Africa
• Joni Eareckson struggled through her treatment and endless hospital visits to become the inspiration to many Christians
• Corrie Ten Boom put her life on the line to save the lives of many Jews in the hiding place, a hidden room behind her wardrobe in a little watch shop in Haarlem, Holland

Others include Granny Brand (Missionary in India), Gladys Aylward (Missionary in China), Jackie Pullinger (Missionary in Hong Kong), Amy Carmichael (Missionary in India), Elisabeth Fry (Worked among the sick, prisoners and homeless) and Catherine Booth (Co-Founder of The Salvation Army).
