Counted Worthy Of Suffering Disgrace For The Name

In separate brief letters to their loved ones as they faced imminent death, two martyrs for Christ - Mr. and Mrs. Peat, write of their joy in sharing in the fellowship of Christ's suffering and of their joy - even in the face of death.

Following excerpt from 18% into Last Letters & Further Records of Martyred Missionaries of the China Inland Mission by Marshall Broomhall
My dear Mamma, Uncle Sandeman, and all dear Friends—The soldiers are just on us, and I have only time to say “Good-bye” to you all. We shall soon be with Christ, which is very far better for us. We can only now be sorry for you who are left behind and our dear native Christians. Good-bye! At longest it is only "till He comes.” We rejoice that we are made partakers of the sufferings of Christ, that when His glory shall be revealed we may “rejoice also with exceeding joy.”

With our warmest, dearest love.—Your loving son and nephew, etc.,

W. G. Peat.

Mrs. Peat’s Last Letter

My dear Loved Ones—At the last moment I say Good-bye! Our Father is with us and we go to Him, and trust to see you all before His face, to be for ever together with Him. With love to you all from us all. I have given my watch to a native to give to the first foreigner who will send it to Tina my sister.

Again with love.—Your loving daughter, sister, and friend,’

Helen Peat.
