Women Trailblazers in Church of God in Christ International Missions 1920 -1970 is the first book of its kind to explore the work of international missionaries in the Church Of God In Christ. The Church’s exponential growth in emerging countries may be traced to the brave women who left the U.S. beginning in the 1920s for Africa, Haiti and around the world taking the message of Pentecost. Personal interviews from women and men now in their 80s and 90s recall their service for Christ providing details of labor in raw fields. The first missionary, Mattie McCaulley journeyed to Trinidad. Elizabeth White arrived in Africa in the 1920s and initially affiliated with the Assembly of God before returning in 1929-30 under the COGIC banner. Willie Curtis Ragland, Martha Barber, Beatrice Lott, Dorothy Exume, Charles and Betty Kennedy, Pearl Page Brown and others built schools, medical stations, rescued abandoned babies from the streets placing them in orphanages they constructed with the help of Haitian or African nationals.
