Heroes of the Faith: C.T. Studd

Charles Thomas Studd was a missionary to China, working with Hudson Taylor. In describing his missionary work, he said: β€œSome want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.” 

Studd was also well-known as a cricketer and played for England in the match won by Australia which was the origin of The Ashes. He went on to found the Worldwide Evangelisation Crusade.
