Thirty years amongst the Congo people is a long term of missionary service, but when it is combined with an exciting life of so many new and varied experiences, including being falsely imprisoned. And escaping from rebel soldiers, it makes fascinating and exciting reading.
It is a story that will challenge younger Christians to follow in Mary’s footsteps and obey the Risen Christ’ last command to ‘Go into all the world’ with the saving and healing message of the Christian Gospel.
Few professional nurses in the western world will have experienced the breadth of medical experience and responsibility that Mary carried, serving the Congolese people during 30 long and troubled years for the democratic Republic of Congo. Readers will be thrilled to enter into many of these experiences with her.
This book is being sold in aid of the new Building Fund of Holland Road Baptist Church, Hove, who first commissioned Mary for service in the Congo, and who faithfully stood behind her in prayer and interest throughout her long missionary career.
