National Be Humble day is coming up on February 22nd and I want to spotlight different ministers and ministries that labor both present and past for the Lord without fanfare, adoration or self-exaltation.
Jenny Adams, was a missionary in Peru. You probably never heard of her but I have no doubt she is very famous in Heaven.
Jenny was from the United States and came to Peru as a Baptist missionary. She fell in love with a Peruvian captain of the army, who later died. Jenny stayed in Peru, resolved to serve God.
In those days the Independent Baptist church did not allow woman to travel alone since there was a war. They also required that women wear skirts and have long hair. Jenny did not obey any of these rules. One day she disappeared from Trujillo and hiked into a very remote village in the Andes. No missionary was ever there before, male or female. She began to teach the people in their homes and many people began to love her. She taught the men the Scriptures and then told them to preach to the people.
“God has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; he has brought down the mighty from their throne and exalted those of humble estate...” ~ Luke 1: 51-52
