A Story of God's Greatness in the Life of a Man Aug 6, 2008
"Mountain Rain" is the amazing story of what the Lord can do in the life of one man who is willing to surrender everything and follow Him. In 1906, James O. Fraser was twenty years old, a student with a bright future in engineering and a brilliant pianist about to give his first London recital, when a booklet from a fellow-student challenged the plans he had made for his life. "If our Master returned today to find millions of people unevangelized, and looked, as of course he would look, to us for an explanation, I cannot imagine what explanation we should have to give. Of one thing I am certain--that most of the excuses we are accustomed to make with such good conscience_now_, we shall be wholly ashamed of_then_." Through this booklet and the Lord's leading, Fraser embarked on a course of faith that led him to the remote valley of the Salween River in the western province of Yunnan, China. Here he would spend years at work among the tribal Lisu people, bringing them the message of salvation in the name of Jesus Christ alone. The remarkable story of his work there and in other regions of China is no less striking than the record of God's working in his own heart, and the deep and loving lessons that the Lord taught him along the way. The Lord taught him the power of the prayer offered in faith as he saw and felt the answers to the prayers of Christians for himself and his work, and the vital necessity of resisting the devil and being filled with the Spirit. Much of the book is in Fraser's own words, taken from journals and letters to those praying back home. His absolute determination to follow the Lord_whatever the cost_, the force and clarity of his writing on living a life of faith, forceful and impassioned because it was what he himself was experiencing, his longing to be filled and led by the Holy Spirit, and the depth of his knowledge and his love for the things of God are amazing. It was not that J.O. Fraser was a great man in himself, but that he had surrendered himself to be used by God, and his abilites and accomplishments are not a memorial to the greatness of a man, but to the inexpressible greatness of the God he served. That same God is ready and willing to use each of us who realize that we have sinned against Him, and who place our only hope of forgiveness and salvation in His Son Jesus Christ, crucified for our sins and raised from the dead that we too might live with Him forever, to do great things if we will only surrrender and follow His leading.

Mountain Rain--A Powerful Message of Commitment May 14, 2003
I have read this book in the past and recently, as I was recommending it to another person, decided I needed to read it again. It is a powerful true story compiled from primary and secondary records of the life of a pioneer missionary in SW China in the early part of this century. The passion of James Fraser's life seems to have been reaching the Lisu tribal group with the gospel of Christ. The depth of his commitment to these people and his total dependance on God and the prayers of his supporters is seen throughout the story. There are times of crushing discouragement as well as times of great rejoicing. If you love stories of missionary pioneers and/or tales of the lives of tribal groups in remote areas, you will be well rewarded for your reading time. I am on-line now to buy a copy of it for a friend, for whatever that may say!
