This week marks the 150th anniversary of Hudson Taylor's Brighton Beach experience - one of the seminal events of the Gospel's advance in China and in the history of missions. The following video segment from No Regrets, No Retreat follows Hudson and Maria Taylor's journey from London to Brighton and recounts Taylor's moment of decision - his reckless abandon by the sea. Brighton was a tipping point in Hudson Taylor's life and ministry and a reminder that Christ continues to use Cross-bearers to shake the gates of hell and build His Church!

In honor of this anniversary, Tim Challies has posted my article Beginning With Impossible. Visit to read this story of Gospel advance.
