History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Sarah Sheppard Andrews was born on November 26, 1892 in Dickson, Tennessee. Her parents started a congregation in their home, and at an early age she heard J. M. McCaleb (1862-1953), on furlough from missionary work in Japan, speak on his work. Andrews studied at Dickson College and Peabody College before traveling to Japan as an independent missionary on January 16, 1916. During her mission work she supported the building of churches in Shizuoka, Shimizu 清水, Okitsu 興津 and Numazu. She was imprisoned during the Second World War and suffered from tuberculosis. She was saved by a soldier who arrived with MacArthur's occupation force in 1945. Andrews died on September 16, 1961, at her home in Tokiwa-cho, Numazu city, Japan. Her tomb was established with the help of Oiha, an orphan whom Andrews had cared for.
