An unforgettable story of Gods faithfulness to His faithful follower
5 stars By Kirsty K, Aug 18 2017
I read this book in one day because I could not put it down! Ruth's book is compelling and engaging because her personal testimony delivers so many incredible stories! Along with telling how faithful God has been, we learn about Australian country society in the early 1900s, nursing training in the mid 1900s, the history of mission to eastern Africa, midwifery in rural Africa, radio ministry and the birth of psychological support of missionaries. All of this is done with great candour and honesty. Ruth is not attempting to make herself look good, she is telling of God's power in weakness - a truly beautiful and biblical thing. Highly recommended!
