Miss Blanche Groves was for many years a faithful missionary in China. One day in Soochow she stood on the curb of the street and watched three men being led to execution by the Japanese. One of them recognized her, broke away from his captors and ran up to her. He cried out, “Thank you for telling me about Jesus. I am not afraid to die now. I will die at sunset, but I will spend the night with Jesus.” Then he went all the way up and down the line pleading with people to go to church and to live for Christ.*

Most of the greatest accomplishments of this life will never be seen until the next.
