A man of personal faith

Lilias’ father, Alexander Trotter, was a man of deep personal faith. His religion was more than a Sunday morning event. He was a member of the Church of England. During his months of travel in the USA, he made a point to encourage others in their personal faith. His faith in Christ motivated him to help ministries like the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). Through the YMCA, Alexander shared his faith in prisons, schools, and even insane asylums.

Alexander Trotter was also very interested in the revival movements of the 1850s. He attended meetings of the Great Awakening, examining their Biblical basis and conduct. Lilias learned of all these events through the letters her mother sent her.
