In the nineteenth century, famed painter Lilias Trotter sacrificed artistic fame in order to serve God as a missionary in Algeria. Trotter's extraordinary gift was noticed by famous art critic John Ruskin, who believed Trotter could have become one of England's greatest artists. But to Ruskin's consternation, Trotter's unfailing love for the needy and those without Christ led her to focus on ministry, and, in time, Trotter could not escape God's undeniable calling to serve on the mission field. This remarkable story challenges Christians to ask themselves key questions such as What is God asking me to do with the gifts I have? and What would I be willing to sacrifice in order to be faithful to Christ?
