Let My People Go
Jaffray was a missionary general. His keen administrating, voluminous writing and incessant strategizing made him a natural leader. Aided by his wife Minnie, he never allowed poor health- diabetes and a heart condition- to deter him from his work for the Lord.
Committed to missions and the people of Southeast Asia to the end, Jaffray died a Martyr in a Japanese prison camp during World War 2. His story serves as an example of how God can use one person- limitations and all- to bring thousands to Himself.
It is little wonder, then, that when Christian Publications sought a name for its new series of missionary portraits, it settled on Jaffray. The story of Robert A. Jaffray, Let My People Go!, serves as a fitting inauguration for The Jaffray Collection of Missionary Portraits.
