Only a thunderbolt could stop Louis Passebois. One did on July 17, 1890. The sixteen-year-old boy lay in bed three months from shock, then suffered a siege of typhoid fever. He was healed miraculously through the prayers of his sisters, new converts to the Advent faith. Soon Louis began to live like a thunderbolt.
He left France, his homeland, to enroll in Battle Creek College. A summer with the Life Boat Mission in Chicago helped prepare him for his faith work among drunks and down-and-outers in New York City. He returned briefly to France, then moved on to Egypt and pioneer work in Cairo in spite of deadly opposition by those hostile to Christianity. Later he worked in New Hampshire and Massachusetts and among French-speaking people in Canada.
During his ministry Louis Passebois was arrested fourteen times. Fourteen times he received letters threatening his life and the lives of his family members. His home was burned down. Five-Foot-Two Giant is the account of such a man.
Mabel Robinson Miller was a neighbor of Elder and Mrs. Louis Passebois in Paradise Valley, California, during the time Louis was writing his autobiography, Adventures of a Modern Huguenot.
