A Legacy of Hope Through Generations

by | Jan 29, 2021

“But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.” (Psalm 9:18)


On January 29th we celebrate Lillian Dickson’s birthday by remembering her life and legacy in Southeast Asia. In 1952, Mrs. Dickson established the Mustard Seed Mission, where she served marginalized people through schools, children’s homes, and milk stations in some of the poorest areas of Taiwan. Her work spread to Borneo, Papua, and the Solomon Islands where she faithfully ministered for more than 30 years, until she passed in 1983. For many, Dickson represented a ray of hope, and her legacy of hope is still burning now in the hearts of children, students, teachers, and communities where Mustard Seed serves.

We believe it’s because of the prayers of faithful supporters, that we can humbly persevere in “our work produced by faith, our labor prompted by love, and our endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 1:3)
