Marie Monson (1878-1962), Norwegian missionary to China with the China Mission Association for 30 years. She was associated with the charismatic renewal in China. "Monson was a catalyst for the Shantung revival of the early 1930's. She had an apparently disastrous first trip to China soon after 1900; then, in 1911, she came to Nanyangfu, Honan (Hunan) Province, with the Norwegian Lutheran Church. When missionaries fled the interior of China in late 1926 and early 1927, the visited missions in Manchuria, then went to Chef (Yantai), Shantung Province. There she met U.S. Southern Baptist missionaries and participated in some dramatic prayer and healing sessions. She returned to Shantung in late 1929 or 1930, and this visit helped to spark a province-wide revival that soon included the U.S. Southern Baptists, Presbyterians, and others. It also influenced a more openly Pentecostal native Chinese 'spiritual gifts' movement...An interesting feature of the Shantung revival was its clearly Pentecostal features occurring in anti-Pentecostal mission bodies." - Bays, Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions.
Monsen describes the voice of God directing her both in preparation for, and during, this experience. The pirates continued robbing other ships after capturing the one on which she was a passenger. She had been traveling between the mission stations of Shansi and Hwanghsien, taking a transport from Tientsin. Soon after departure three men (who were passengers) took control of the vessel.
