“A kernel of wheat…if it dies, it produces many seeds.”
Dr. Bill Wallace came from Tennessee. In 1935, he went
to Wuchow, China to join the StoutMemorialHospital and became a medical missionary. The hospital had applied
for a doctor for ten years, and understand- ably, they wholeheartedly welcomed
Dr. Wallace. Dr. Wallace rested for two days and immediately began surgical
operations. His fine surgical skills won admiration and everyone wanted to
join his team.
Bill Wallace was born in 1908, in Tennessee Knoxville,
he was a son of a physician. Young Bill had little interest in medicine, instead he loved cars and motorcycles. At the
age of seventeen, God led him to submit his life to missions,
Wallace’s life was changed forever. His interests began to turn, so he learned
medicine and willingly went wherever His Lord saw fit to lead him. Ten years
later, after finishing medical school and turning down lucrative medical
practice offers in the States, Wallace headed off to a remote town in China to become
a medical missionary for the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist
The years while he was in China, Dr. Wallace was too busy taking care of
patients, to take care for himself. He did not have
time for courtship and never married. He had lived through the Warlords
fighting, Sino-Japan War, and the Civil War in China. Although he suffered through a lot of difficult
situations, he never changed his heart to serve the Lord and the Chinese. He
told his friend once: “I am the worst missionary, because I don’t speak well.
Therefore, I can only be a surgeon who uses his hands instead of his mouth.”
19, 1950, , a group of soldiers
broke into his living quarters at the hospital and arrested him for spying
for American imperialism. Although the Public Security officers asked the locals
to testify against him, nobody did. They said Dr. Wallace was too busy to do
any spying. He was jailed and interrogated for about two months. One day, the
jail announced Dr. Wallace had committed suicide because of his crimes. They suddenly
buried him in rush without an autopsy or examination. A young doctor was
martyred just like that. However, his story was spread all over the western
world and it moved the hearts of many young people to join the mission field.
