Abstract

Arthur Allum was the first Australian Seventh-day Adventist minister to be sent by the Church to China. Arthur and Eva spent 17 years there. Arthur had a particular burden for Western China and traveled up the Yangtze River to establish a Seventh-day Adventist presence in the Szechuan Province. He was distinguished by his ability to use Mandarin and to dress in Chinese clothing. Poor health eventually saw the family return to Australia where Allum held a number of key, senior positions in the Church.
