Hi Staff,
As a young girl, before I was a Christian, I was inspired by this story because of the Hollywood film. I'm not sure about the reference about the Inn of the Sixth Happiness but I'm aware from documentaries that Gladys was unhappy with the movie because Hollywood threw in a love interest. An important part of Gladys' testimony is that God never answered her prayer for a husband or own children or even a female companion to share the heavy load with. God nevertheless gave her hundreds of children to care for and many were saved as well as miraculous conversions the throughout all her days. She also suffered much and tells us that is indeed what Jesus requires. Denial of self, our own desires and picking up our cross to follow Him into uncharted territory.

Hollywood always adds or detracts from wonderful Christian stories, But the film got much of her story right albeit Gladys was a very small and plain woman and Ingrid Bergman was tall and gorgeous. Still the story stayed in my mind many years before Jesus saved me 😊 Hearing her testimony on these archived audios was explosive and full of the glory of God.

 Re:

So I believe that the culture she was in believed that you needed 5 things to be happy: luck, prosperity, longevity, happiness, and wealth. Gladys used a 6th happiness as a springboard to preach Christ.
