Three months after her conversion, Hulda J. Stumpf (1867-1930), a forty year old teacher at the Indiana Business College in Pennsylvania, wrote to Mr. G. K. Sample (see letter below) about her desire to become a missionary in British East Africa [now Kenya]. A week later she received an application to Africa Inland Mission and in filled it out she responded to the question, "Do you believe you are called of God to work in Africa?" she stated, "An earnest desire believing the time to be short, when He shall appear, and the need in foreign fields seems to be great." Hulda worked in Kijabe, Kenya for about 22 years until she was martyred there in January 1930
