When twenty-five-year-old Maud Kells gave up her home in Ireland to replace martyred missionaries in Congo she was acutely aware of the risk she was taking. Despite the state of the war-torn country, her own reserved nature and the objections of her family, she chose to follow the God who promised, 'I am with you. That is all you need.' This is the remarkable story of an ordinary woman who decided to walk through the door God opened for her, whatever the cost.
