Our Readers Today Are From:  USA, Indonesia, Brazil, China, Czech Republic and Germany

It's good to be back.  Thanks:  A Really Special Thanks to Our Very Good Friend, Jim Campbell, who helped get this "blessed" computer back on line again.  As you walk along the roads of life, you're never sure just who it is you may meet next.  Two of those have been Jim and his wife Sharrel.  Thanks Guys, you really are special. Some day I ought to tell about ALL the folks I've met.  O what Blessings!!!

A Lady I've met is Dr. Helen Roseveare.  She was speaker one week at Wesley Biblical Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi several years ago.  In those years they had an annual Week called "Holiness Lectures". Dr. Roseveare has written several books about her life, work and experiences in the Belgian Congo.  I want to introduce  you to her book:  "A Two-Part Autobiography  --  Give Me This Mountain  and  He Gave Us a Valley".  Give Me This Mountain was published in 1966.  He Gave Us a Valley was published in 1976.  The USA publisher is:  WEC International,  P.O. Box 1707,  Fort Washington, PA 19034-8707.    There is no ISBN number in my copy of the Two-Part Autobiography.

As a result of warring rebellion in the country in 1964 she, with others, was in five months of captivity.  After release she went home to England for recuperation.  In March of 1966 she returned to the Congo.  They made the entrance to Africa from the east side.  It was a 1,500 mile drive from the east coast to the stopping place at the Mission.   Driving from sea level going west over mountains, their path rose to an elevation of 9,000 feet before they began the descent toward mission, home and hospital in the Congo.

When she arrived her thirty-nine pieces of luggage were there, but no paperwork to claim it. But then after five days, an American boy came with all the papers for her to claim her luggage, but also the van and all its contents including meds, drugs and equipment for the new hospital.

Her life story is long and very worth the reading.  I have read some of her books and located the titles of others.  Below are some titles that would be enjoyable for the reader.

     Though the Lion Roar
     Digging Ditches
     Living Faith
     What's in the Parcel?
     Living Holiness
     Living Sacrifice
     Living Fellowship
     On His Majesty's Service
Enjoy the ride.

  1. As usual, I enjoy you writings again. You have really had a long and cold Winter. I'm glad you are getting some sunny and warmer days. Our day today was beautiful and perfect.
    Do Public Libraries have the books you mentioned above, or where could one find them?
    Have a wonderful evening.
