Does your faith in the God of the impossible need reviving? Do you think that stories of walls of fire and hosts of guardian angels protecting God’s children are only for Bible times? Then you should read the amazing accounts in this book of how God and His unseen armies protected and guided Marie Monsen, a Norwegian missionary to China, as she traveled through bandit-ridden territory spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and standing on the promises of God. You will be amazed as she tells of an invading army of looters who ravaged a whole city, yet were not allowed to come near her mission compound because of angels standing sentry over it. Your heart will thrill as she tells of being held captive on a ship for twenty-three days by pirates whom God did not allow to harm her, but instead were compelled to listen to her message of a loving Savior who died for their sin. As you read the many stories in this small volume your faith will be strengthened by the realization that our God is a living God who can still bring protection and peace in the midst of the storms of distress, confusion and terror—a very present help in trouble.

About the Author

Marie Monsen (1878-1962) was a Spirit-filled Norwegian missionary to North and Central China for a period of thirty years, during which time she was used by God in revival, accounts of which can be read in her other book, The Awakening. This revival was the precursor to the great revival of the underground church recorded by Brother Yun in The Heavenly Man.


Marie Monsen


This is a recounting of personal experiences where Marie Monsen saw first hand how God protected her while serving the people of China early in the 1900s.

I have heard many times about Amy Carmichael and her mission work in China but had never heard the stories of Marie Monsen. This is a great stoy of captivity, release, bandits, armies, looters, how God did protect this missionary and how she thrived through it all.

The book is based on Psalm 46:1 – “God is our refuge and strength – a very present help in trouble.”
