Quick Overview

“Have you no fear at all, Gertrude?” Betsy demanded.

“Yes, I do,” responded the feisty 11-year-old. “But not much.”

That was Gertrude—headstrong, confident, and opinionated! Her mother, Lena, sure that her oldest daughter would be somebody famous, encouraged Gertrude to follow her dreams and taught her to be self-disciplined and industrious.

And no, Gertrude wasn’t afraid of much. Nursing school with its long hours and hard work didn’t faze her. Carrying the workload of two or three people didn’t bother her. Accepting a call to China as a missionary nurse in 1936 . . . well, she was understandably bewildered at first, but certainly not frightened. Challenging an arrogant Japanese soldier, single-handedly running a hospital, and confronting the spoiled wife of a high-ranking general were peanuts compared to the one fear that brought the unstoppable Gertrude Green to her knees.

She ran from that fear all the way home to Rochester, New York, but God needed her back in China. Back in the same hospital, in much the same circumstances she was in when she left—but this time her faith in Him was ready to mature. Oh, and this time she and 51 others would need to flee the Communist army in the dead of winter—on foot.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Max W. Hammonds

Great read

The Indomitable Gertrude Green is well written spiritual book that I had a hard time putting down. Gertrude gave up a very promising dance career to follow God plan for her life. Believing that she was fulfilling that plan she became a nurse, teacher, and organizer for the New England San and Hospital. God had so much more for her to accomplish once she agreed to answer a call to become a missionary in China. Despite horrible conditions and two wars, Gertrude kept her eyes on her mission to help the needy wherever she was placed.
