Missionary statesman Hudson Taylor had complete trust in Gods faithfulness. In his journal he wrote:
Our heavenly Father is a very experienced One. He knows very well that His children wake up with a good appetite every morning He sustained 3 million Israelites in the wilderness for 40 years. We do not expect He will send 3 million missionaries to China; but if He did, He would have ample means to sustain them all Depend on it, Gods work done in Gods way will never lack Gods supply.
