|Isobel in Lisu dress. No date, ca. mid 1930s?|
|Isobel Selina Miller Kuhn (1901-1957) during most of her brief adult life
was a missionary under the China Inland Mission (later the Overseas Missionary
Fellowship). She served, along with her husband John, as a Bible translator,
church planter, Bible teacher, evangelist and friend to the Lisu people
of southwest China and northern Burma and Thailand. Besides helping to introduce
Chrsitianity to the Lisu people, she also helped to introduce the Lisu church
to Ameriucan Christians through her warm, humurous, down-to earth books
describing her expereinces, including Ascent to the Tribes (1956)
and Stones of Fire (1960).
The Archives has many of the letters, photogrpahs, and manuscripts of this remarkable woman, especially in Collections 435 and 215, as well as descriptions from people who knew in several oral history interviews. This month the Bulletin Board is highlighting some of her documents. Below, for example, is an excerpt from one of her letters.
