The God of the Impossible - C. T. Studd

But all this work was carried on against tremendous odds. Not only in India, but for some years previously, C.T. had been a martyr to asthma. He hardly slept except between 2 and 4 a.m. Night after night he was sitting up in a chair fighting for his breath. "Charlie is a wreck," wrote rs. C.T., "and almost the slightest movement brings on asthma." Yet this was the man who by faith stepped out later into the heart of Africa and lived there for eighteen years. No wonder even his own wife was opposed at first. No wonder afterwards her favourite phrase was "The God of the Impossible."

-C. T. Studd Cricketer and Pioneer, p.103
