Review by judyg54
This book gives the life of Dr. Helen Roseveare, a missionary doctor in the Congo in the 1950-1960's. She tells her story with honesty and insights and I have learned to love this lady. She has went through alot in her life, and her love for her Lord continues to shine through her life. Yes, she had struggles with pride, bitterness, attitdues, etc., but she was pliable and always kept her great God and Savior before her and was willing to be molded and changed into the person He wanted her to be. I enjoyed reading of her life. The Epilogue at the end was excellent where she lays out some of the lessons she has learned throughout her life!
Review by eclecticdodo
This is the first part of Dr Helen Rosaveare's autobiography. It tells the story of her conversion, medical training and other preparations, and then her first two terms of missionary service in the Belgian Congo (now Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC). Her earnest seeking after God and self sacrificing service is inspiring. Yet she manages at the same time to be honest about the many physical and spiritual battles faced. The metaphor of climbing a mountain, coming to small peaks and dips along the way, is very apt. It's so good I'm going straight on to part two of the trilogy, He Gave Us A Valley.
