About "When the Lights Go Out: Memoir of a Missionary to Somalia"
In 1960, Ruth Myors left Australia to work as a midwife with the Somali people. For over two decades, she worked in a hospital in Somalia, a village in Ethiopia and in radio ministry in Kenya. During this time, government decisions, coups, communist takeovers, natural disasters, sudden deaths and other misfortunes disrupted plans and brought about unexpected changes in Ruth's life. In 'When the Lights Go Out', Ruth describes how these experiences have shaped her and shown her that God is faithful, and that even during the darkest periods, his light shows the way ahead.
