Dragon Ride is truly inspiring. The author and her family's perseverance in China, staying the course of evangelism through political dangers and cultural obstacles is truly inspiring! They suffered through numerous trials to share God's love and mercy where mercy is unknown. Having lived on several mission fields and understanding the adjustments made to live in foreign cultures, learning a foreign language and meeting all licensing and reporting requirements to local governments I never saw or experienced the strictness one would find in China. As I read this book almost every page shared hardships encountered and how the Lord supported them through them. Some were so crippling to ministry that if not for their faith in God's calling to China it would have been hard to stay. I was so impressed with their steadfastness over the years that I likened their resolve and commitment to their work and ministry as the Apostle Paul was to his.
