study explored the significant events of these Hakka women in three dimentions: their
growth history, the causes and course of their conversion, and their lives after the
conversion. In the pursuit of independent religious beliefs, they established their
subjectivity, self-awareness and confidence in this new field of religion with virtues of
diligence, rationality, perseverance and kindness that were heritages of Hakka Culture.

power of life, hope and sovereignty lied in God. The three Hakka women think that only

value of life, presented the experience of the Christian faith in the believer′s life
