About this Item

FIRST EDITION. 12mo. (14)13-261p. Frontispiece portrait of Troxel plus many, many black and white captioned photos. Blue cloth with gilt decorations and letters. Very minor wear to extremities, gilt bright, gift inscription, else very good and better. No jacket. On 23 November 1901 Rev. Cecil Warren Troxel and Rev. Woodford Taylor arrived in China to serve as missionaries in the South Chihli Gospel Mission, an independent missionary organisation directed by Rev. Horace W. Houlding. In 1904, two sisters, Harriet and Ellen Armour, arrived in China as new missionaries. By 1908 Harriet married Woodford Taylor, and Ellen married Cecil Troxel. Theological incompatibility and differences over mission philosophy, prompted the Troxels and Taylors to resign from Houlding's mission and return to the USA. On 1 November 1910 the Troxels and Taylors sailed for China as the first missionaries of the newly established WGM [World Gospel Mission]. They were assigned by comity arrangements with other Christian denominations to the Shantung (now Shandong) province in eastern China. They established headquarters at Nankwantao, and occupied their mission compound (comprising five two-storey brick buildings on 1.5 acres of land) on 29 September 1911. Additionally, the support of two Chinese preachers was also approved by the new organization. Mr. C. Yang was a Chinese Christian who started a mission in his home. Over 100 Chinese attended Mr. Yang's special services. They established the Tientsin Bible School in Shantung province. In 1917 a large tent was purchased to facilitate evangelistic meetings. By 1920, the Chinese Mission Field reported 15 missionaries, 50 Chinese workers, and hundreds of Chinese Christians. Bookseller Inventory # 03360
