Mildred Cable

1877-1952. Missionary to China. Having been delayed by the Boxer Uprising, she went to China in 1901 and with Eva and Francesca French built up a flourishing work at Hochow in Shansi province, including one of the first girls' schools in China. When principles of self-support began to be applied in 1928, they dealt the work a severe blow. Soon afterward, the indomitable trio of women decided to move to the extreme northwest of China, where they established their base in Suchow, the “City of Criminals.” From there they made repeated evangelistic journeys through central Asia, traveling from oasis to oasis, and in the main cities of Turkestan (or Sinkiang), preaching and distributing Scriptures.
