Bridge Across the Century - Volume I Japan, Korea, China
Edwin W Kilbourne
A narrative history, 100 years of OMS in Asia 1901-2001. Ernest A Kilbourne one of the founders of The Oriental Missionary Society, was alone at prayer when he received a dramatic revelation. He saw a great highway bridge arching across the Pacific Ocean to Japan. From Japan, a span of the bridge reached Korea, and from Korea a third touched China. From China, the great highway seemed to extend directly to heaven. More symbolic, across that final span would march a throng of the redeemed of Asia to their eternal home.
Ernest Kilbourne, in his lifetime would witness the fulfilment of his vision. No human story ever stands alone. Nor does this one; it is simply a part of a larger one, the account of how God is redeeming a prodigal creation. It is the story of Cowman, Kilbourne, Nakada and The Oriental Missionary Society, but it should be my story and your story too. The same Christ who called them calls every person. We should rejoice in the results of their obedience, but find in the account a challenge to give ourselves with equal purpose to the passion that consumed them, the desire to see prodigal man return to the Father's house.

Carroll F. Hunt
Harry Lee's only crime was that he wanted to leave China to attend seminary. Instead he was persecuted for his faith and thrown into prison, clutched firmly in the claws of the Chinese dragon.

When you read Harry's story, your perspective on what really matters will be altered permanently."

Where Stony Ground is Broken
Lois P. Miller
Lois Miller's expression of how the church of Jesus Christ is becoming a force in Ecuador, South America. Lois and her husband, Bill, became missionaries with OMS in 1954 and have served for 47 years in three countries on two continents. They served from 1955-1972 in Ecuador and then went on to serve in the new OMS work in Spain. Lois devoted her energies to church planting, music, Bible studies and retreats for women, children's Bible classes and discipleship among adolescents and their families. Lois also had a fruitful ministry among prostitutes and women prisoners in Guayaquil. They have ratified in their own experience the wisdom of the OMS International founders, that the citizens of a country and not missionaries from abroad are the key to successful evangelism, church planting, and training for leadership of the churches and other Christian institutions and ministries. Even though statistics show that approximately four percent of Ecuador's population now gives testimony to knowing Jesus Christ as personal Saviour, much area remains to be covered for the Gospel. The spiritual ground is hard in some places, stony, and unbroken. Our God is the Lord who responds to hard things - to difficult challenges. This book gives the reader opportunity to believe more stalwartly that there is nothing too hard for God.
