Louisa Stead

Hymn Story Monologue
Henry Maxey

It seems like it was just yesterday, the agony for my daughter and the pain for myself, even though I have now been back on the mission field for years.

My husband and I, with our 4 year old daughter, had returned to the states from the mission field, to study and rest.

It was a rough long summer. So, we decided to take a break and go to the beach for a picnic and some fun. The three of us relaxed, swam, played and ate. It was great.

Suddenly we heard the cry of a child from far out in the ocean. My husband immediately ran,.
dove into the water and swam quickly to the child. But, some how, as it happens some times, the child pulled my husband under the water and they both drowned. (Long pause)
My daughter and I stood there in shock, tears flowing, hearts breaking and in total disbelieve. No, God, no! We are your missionaries!!!!

It was a long time before my daughter could sleep without screaming in the night. I couldn’t sleep either and I continued to cry out to God who we loved so much. Why, heavenly Father, why? Night after night I would go to sleep with empty arms and a broken heart. Yet, I knew I was in the arms of God.

Our situation got worse because I had no money coming in and poverty was knocking at the door. One morning I went, weeping, to sit on the porch because there was no food and no money in the house. I didn’t know what I was going to do But, when I open the door there were bags and bags of groceries and money stuck in them.

Oh, but God, not only gave us food and money, when I got it all put away, He gave me new song deep within my heart and as fast as I could write it, God gave me word after word ……….(sing it)

Tis’ So Sweet To Trust In Jesus
Just to take Him at His word.
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, “Thus saith,” the Lord.

(Have the congregation join on the last chorus.)
