Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Great Closed Land: A Plea for Tibet It is a far cry - more than 2000 miles - from the Moravian stations among the Tibetan Buddhists of Ladak to the places on the Chinese frontier whence agents of the China Inland Mission are seeking to touch and bless the Eastern Tibetans. A heart-stirring narrative of pioneer toils and trials will be found on pages 84 to 98, and Miss Annie Marston has scarcely given space enough to the noble work done by Mr. Cameron, and by her own sister and her brother-in-iaw. To Mr. And Mrs. Cecil polhill-turner it has been given in behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him (and to speak of that saving faith to the Tibetans in their own language), but also to suffer for His sake. Between these extreme posts of the cordon, other Christian missionaries are to be found at points along the borders of Tibet. While serving among the natives of North India, the Agents of the London Missionary Society at Almora, and of the Church of Scotland at Darjiling, have endeavoured to reach the Tibetans by work among the border tribes.
