‘Go to Congo.’ God’s Call was loud, clear and insistent. What was a recently qualified, ambitious, young ward sister to make of this? She had a speech impediment; she would need more training; and where would the money for all this come from?
God was insistent, and when Margaret yielded to his will, she began an amazing journey of adventure and faith, experiencing a range of incredible difficulties and wonderful answers to prayer.
‘Margaret’s story is a kaleidoscope of divine miracles and sheer hard work, soaring triumph and tragic loss, glorious laughter and bitter tears, spiritual reluctance and fervent courage. Margaret worked at a time and in places far distant from our modern world of mobile phones and emails… We cannot read her story without laughing and crying, but more to the point, we will never be proud of our own achievements again.’ Brian H. Edwards
