When young Betsey joined a missionary voyage to Hawaii, everyone was shocked. “A single woman, who was born enslaved, going to mission? How extraordinary!”
But that’s exactly who Betsey was—an extraordinary girl who believed in an extraordinary God!
Follow her adventurous five-month journey across the Pacific Ocean. A journey of laughter, tears, prayer and even a newborn life! A journey that would take her to the shores of beautiful Hawaii, where she would finally be able to do what she’d always dreamt of—be a missionary.
How extraordinary indeed.
Children will enjoy this beautifully illustrated children's biography of Betsey Stockton (c. 1798-1865), who, despite being born enslaved, follows her dream of being a missionary to Hawaii.
