20th Century Missions in China


Maudie and Wilson Fielder in China 1912-1950”

Milton Cunningham, one-time missionary to Africa and former President of the Baptist General Convention of Texas writes about the book “Strangers in a Strange Land” - “Wilson and Maudie Fielder lived to serve … The author’s love for China and his empathy for the Fielders can be seen in these pages. These pages will enrich and bless your life.”

The years the Fielders were in Interior China 1912 to 1950 were volatile years around the world.

This is the story of a Comanche county cowboy, Wilson Fielder, and Maudie Albritton his West Texas sweetheart from Miles. Two pioneers in China’s Henan province from 1912 to 1950.

When Wilson settled in Kaifeng, an ancient capital of China on the Yellow River, he realized he could not continue without his young sweetheart Maude. She wondered why he had not proposed before going to the ends of the earth.

Included are dozens of photos, maps and insights on China. In addition to the Fielder family are many Baptist missionary colleagues, heretofore unknown. There is an update on Christianity since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949.

This book is an attempt to make SBC missions more personal. Through inspiration and information remind Baptists and others why the Great Commission is as important as ever.
