Celebration of God's Women (222 MB)
Lillian Dickson was a little lady with a great vision and big heart (as introduced by the Reader’s Digest July 1962 issue.) She was born 1901 in Minnesota. A graduate of Macalerter College, Lillian married to James Dickson (孫雅各,) a Canadian studied at Princeton Theological Seminary in 1927. Soon they accepted the missionary duty from Canadian Presbyterian Church. In her words,
"We only go around once. Let's go to where we would be needed the most."
In 1952 (1954?) she founded The Mustard Seed Mission, which is still actively helping the least of our sisters and brothers today (http://thetaiwanese.blogspot.com/2007/11/mrs-lillian-dickson.html)
