The Scripture Testimony Index seeks to answer the question:

Who has ever trusted God like that?

Starting with the New Testament as the source for a subject index, we have used data science with a large body of missionary biographies and personal narratives to discover amazing stories of God’s reality in our lives. Then, one by one, we selected the best to create this curated collection.

Explore the index below to find story excerpts, along with information about the source books and where you can find more.

This is an ongoing process. The counters above reflect our progress as we continue the story research.

How we put this together

First, we scanned and processed more than 1,000 books, then added the raw text to a database. More books are being added all the time. Explore the library.

Next we combed through the New Testament to identify topic sentences. Our reasoning is that if a person is writing about a spiritual experience, he/she will either quote the Scriptures, or explain it in a way that correlates to the Scriptures. This hypothesis has proven true, and as a result the Scriptures come alive through these myriad stories.

Using the topic sentences, we next used a Sentence Similarity algorithm to find potential matches for each sentence in all 1,000 books. For example, by using the source phrase, “First be reconciled to your brother,” from Matthew 23-24, we found “two brothers who had not spoken civilly to one another for years were among those reconciled,” from Isobel Kuhn’s book Nests Above the Abyss.

Next we did a full text search for the source phrase using the Apache Lucene search engine. The engine returns both exact matches and “fuzzy” matches containing the key words from the phrase, which combine to provide the “fine-toothed comb” for finding stories.

Then we looked at the book database from the other direction. Instead of starting with our topic sentences and searching the texts, we used Topic Clustering algorithms to identify topics and themes we didn’t realize were there. This requires almost two weeks of CPU time!

Finally, we read every matching story for relevance and impact, adding the best to the Scripture Testimony Index.

Each of these steps is described in greater detail in our Data Science section.

In 1872, the Church Missionary Society prayed for more men to join their mission force. Over the next five years, they sent out 112 men in response to their prayers, doubling the number of missionaries they had previously sent out. Then, in 1880, the society asked for prayers for more money, and within months, they received enough donations to cover all their financial needs and even expand their work, inspiring many young university men to dedicate themselves to missionary work.
During a time of despair in the mission to Tahiti, the London Missionary Society considered abandoning the mission due to lack of conversions, but some, like Dr. Haweis and Matthew Wilks, believed in the power of prayer and continued support for the missionaries. A miraculous event occurred when two ships unknowingly crossed paths in the ocean, one carrying letters of encouragement from London and the other carrying news of a mighty work of God in Tahiti, including the surrender of idols by the converted people, demonstrating the power of faith and prayer.
In "Revival Lectures,” Charles G. Finney recounts the story of a poor, sick man in Western New York who prayed for the salvation of an unconverted merchant. The merchant was converted, leading to a great revival, demonstrating the man's impact on others through his steadfast prayers for churches and missionary stations. Despite his physical limitations, his prayers were heard by God, resulting in revivals in the exact order of his prayers, even reaching places like Ceylon.
In the fight for ending slavery in England and America, the efforts of God-fearing women in Boston, like the praying saints, played a significant role. Despite facing hostility and threats, they stayed committed to their cause, believing in the power of prayer to bring about change - a belief eventually confirmed when slavery was abolished for four million people.
William Williams, alongside with Mrs. Williams, faced immense challenges in spreading Christianity, such as confronting idolatry, infanticide, and heathenism in places like Nanumaga, India, and Raiatea. Through their unwavering faith and dedication, they were able to convert thousands of idolaters, bringing civilization, religious conversion, and social progress to places like Raiatea and Samoa, without relying on government assistance.
Despite initial resistance from the natives, when Thomas Powell left Elijah, a native evangelist, on Nanumaga island, the people's beliefs transformed significantly over two years. Initially worshiping multiple idol-gods, the entire population eventually gathered to worship Jehovah in a place of worship, and even the children were attending school, resulting in a complete shift in Nanumagan society's culture and values.
John G. Paton spent three and a half years on Aniwa, transforming the society completely through his missionary work. His efforts turned the cannibal island into a civilized community with Christian values, overcoming enormous challenges and demonstrating the power of faith.
Johann Gerhard Oncken, a former servant who opened a bookshop in Hamburg, became a pastor after being baptized by Dr. Barnas Sears and played a key role in spreading the gospel, facing persecution and imprisonment but ultimately gaining the right to worship freely. Over 25 years, he established 65 churches with 750 stations and nearly 10,000 members, influencing millions with Bibles and tracts, illustrating the impact one person can have in sharing the message of Christianity.

In Upper Burma between 1860 and 1890, there was a stark contrast in leadership and society. Theebau's reign began with extreme cruelty and massacres, including the sacrifice of young girls, leading to captivity or death for those attempting missions in the area. However, thirty years later, a Baptist Missionary Conference in Mandalay symbolized a transformation, with diverse groups coming together in peace and unity, including Burmese, English, Americans, and others, sharing the Lord's Supper in a display of harmony and fellowship.
During his time in Fiji from 1835 to 1885, James Calvert witnessed incredible transformation. Starting with the burial of victims of cannibalism, he eventually saw the same people partake in communion, celebrating their newfound faith. By the end of fifty years, there were 1,300 churches in Fiji and a significant majority of the population were regular churchgoers, showing a complete shift from their previous practices.
Dr. Duff was skeptical about educating women in India, but today there are thousands of women being educated there. Christian women played a crucial role in unlocking the doors to Zenana, leading to a rapid and remarkable transformation in India that astonished even the most insightful observers.
In 1856, Rev. William C. Burns began an evangelization mission in South China and was arrested amid the chaos of the Tai-ping rebellion and brewing conflict between Britain and China. Despite the danger, he was safeguarded through the prayers of Mrs. Stewart Sandemann and her companions during his perilous journey under Chinese officials' guard, escaping potential death had he arrived later in Canton during Commissioner Yeh's turbulent reign.
In 1872, Robert W. McAll found a unique opportunity in war-torn Paris where the devastation and unrest created a void that a simple message of hope could fill. His evangelistic work, perfectly timed and placed, provided a much-needed alternative to the formalism and superstition that had alienated the people, giving atheistic France a chance to embrace a godly message.
Mr. Fuller, a missionary, confronted a chief over the practice of putting human heads on canoes, only for the chief to defend it based on his beliefs. Over time, the chief's sons rejected that practice, embraced Christianity, and even became preachers, leading to the abolition of such customs and the spread of the gospel among their tribe in Cameroons and even further in Africa.
When Rev. J. J. Fuller arrived in Africa in 1845, he found a community of ignorant savages engaging in cruel practices like human sacrifices, witchcraft trials, and burial of live individuals with the deceased. Over 45 years, with the help of Alfred Saker and Presbyterian missionaries, the people of Calabar transformed, developing faith, education, and eliminating cruel customs.
William A. B. Johnson found liberated captives in Sierra Leone who had suffered greatly on slave ships, enduring terrible conditions and treatment. Despite facing hardships and resistance due to their history of mistreatment by white men, Johnson showed them compassion, taught them the gospel, and educated them, eventually winning their trust and spreading the message of Christianity.
Joseph Neesima, a Japanese man, became the first native evangelist of his race, preaching boldly and establishing the Doshisha college in Kyoto. Despite offers to join the government, he remained dedicated to his Christian mission, facing obstacles and gathering nine hundred pupils at his school. His perseverance mirrored that of Apostolic times, preaching Christianity under disguise and overcoming challenges to build the school.
In Foochow, Ling-Ching-Ting, a former opium addict, found hope in Christianity through the missionary Rev. S. L. Binkley's preaching and experienced a miraculous transformation, breaking free from his addiction and spreading the message of salvation to others despite facing severe persecution.

Reverend James Evans tried to convert Maskepetoom and his warriors to Christianity, but Maskepetoom remained resistant to peace. However, Reverend George Macdougal's teaching on forgiveness ultimately led Maskepetoom to spare the life of the man who had betrayed and killed his son, demonstrating a profound act of forgiveness influenced by Christian teachings.
Africaner, a feared Hottentot chief, was known for terrorizing the country in revenge for past wrongs by stealing cattle, enslaving captives, and waging relentless war against the Boers. However, missionary Robert Moffat succeeded in converting Africaner, transforming a notorious foe into a loyal friend who cared for Moffat in sickness and even risked his life to travel with him, demonstrating the power of grace to change even the hardest of hearts.
In 1738, as Beck was translating the gospels into an Eskimo Bible, Kayarnak, a Greenlander, was moved by the story of the cross and earnestly sought salvation. Guided by Beck and his Moravian teachers, Kayarnak, along with his family and companions, embraced Christianity and were baptized in 1739, marking the beginning of a new spiritual awakening among the Greenlanders.
Missionaries Matthew Stach, Frederick Boehnisch, and John Beck faced extreme hardships while trying to convert the Eskimos, who were resistant to Christianity and mocked their efforts. Despite being subjected to persecution, theft, and starvation by the Eskimos, the missionaries remained dedicated to their faith and persevered in their mission to bring Christianity to Greenland.
In 1843, when Mrs. Grant arrived in Persia, she found that girls' education was neglected, despite some progress in opening schools for boys. She dedicated herself to lifting Nestorian womanhood out of degradation by starting a girls’ school, which eventually became a significant institution in Persia. Despite facing personal struggles and illness, her tireless efforts in promoting education and missionary work left a lasting impact both in Persia and back in Holyoke, Massachusetts.
