She lived and worked in Kowloon's notorious 'Walled City' and by 1981 she had set up the St Stephen's Society, which provides rehabilitation homes for recovering drug addicts, prostitutes, and gang members. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Pullinger's autobiography of her ministry in Hong Kong's walled city of Kowloon inspires, challenges, and captivates. Though the book is short, it's packed with story after story, so much that I found it overwhelming, and it definitely would benefit from being read over time. Now, I'm not the crying type, but I was definitely sniffling back a few tears at several points in this book.

Chasing the Dragon is a missionary biography that centres upon Hong Kong's most dangerous territory: the Walled City.The way she presents the gospel is so simple to everyone she meets, and the miracles that happen seem so commonplace that sometimes I forgot that these things ARE NOT NORMAL. That she manages to do so much for so many, in the face of repeated failures, faithfully recorded, is a tribute to her courage. Based on his own experience and the experiences of those he treated in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose.

It also seemed like one spectacular highlight after another of people getting saved and speaking in tongues, for which I praise God (and I'm not a cessationist), but it would have been helpful to hear more processing of her heart through these years, and I would have loved to see her elaborate on her sorrows and lows (she says she had some, but doesn't really elaborate). It was super cool to hear about experiences from inside Hong Kong's walled city, something I'd never heard of before -- a city that hosted over 30,000 people within 6 acres, filled with prostitution, opium dens, and more (it was demolished in 1994). Created by Claire Friedman and featuring a cast that reads like a humor hall of fame—Colin Jost, Wanda Sykes, Chris Parnell, Neil Patrick Harris, Cecily Strong, and more—this is a sidesplitting adventure in the corporate circus.

For Jackie Pullinger the question of 'who is Jesus' is not met with tidy, theological answers that may or may not convince. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. If you're unsure if God still uses the gifts of the Spirit these days, or how practical and effective they may be in ministry these days, I'd recommend this book. It gave insight into how people end up into fields such as gangs, based on the choices they are given growing up.

I love, not only her pursuit of God and his people, but her honesty in regards to her frustrations, challenges and times of despair.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. In 1972, when workers in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, were digging the foundations for a new development, the last thing they expected to find was a skeleton at the bottom of a well. Once Ah Kei became a Christian, he began to tell the good news to his family, who one by one accepted it. Her stories are amazing of the power of the Gospel to change leper's spots or in this case, free addicted drug dealers and prostitutes from their bondage and melt any and every heart of stone.
