CT Studd was a famous English cricketer who played in the remarkable England versus Australia Test that gave us the legend of the Ashes. Less than three years later he left a life of riches and pleasure to serve as a missionary with the China Inland Mission. Later still he went as a missionary to India and then to Central Africa. He founded the missionary organisation WEC International. He once stated that if he got married, it would have to be to a Hallelujah Lassie from The Salvation Army. Priscilla Livingstone Stewart served with The Salvation Army in Ireland for two years before going as a missionary to China. In China she met CT Studd, they fell in love and married. “From Ashes to Glory” will be published in March 2014.
