The inspiring story of how God took a rebellious and lost young woman, gave her purpose and a passion to live for Him, and led her to serve as a missionary nurse in the Ecuadorian rainforest.
Becoming a Christian missionary was definitely not on the agenda for teenager Sheila Leech . Far from God, she was taking drugs until Jesus broke into her life and gradually called her into his purposes.
Called to be a missionary nurse she has served amongst an indigenous tribe in the Ecuadorian rainforest, and more recently as a health worker being sent to some of the major natural disaster zones such as the Haitian earthquake and the Tsunami. She has served those affected by war, earthquakes, volcanoes and floods, and shows that anyone can be the voice and hands of Jesus, even in the most inhospitable places in the planet.
Despite her many amazing adventures of faith, Sheila is clear that this is not the story of a super saint, but a very honest account of an ordinary person who serves an extraordinary God . The overriding themes of Sheila’s story are God’s grace and protection, his power and provision, and that God can use anyone who trusts in him – whatever their start in life.
