Helen Roseveare qualified as a doctor, packed up her life in England and set off to be a missionary in the Belgian Congo (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). She went there to set up hospitals and rural clinics and train national nurses to work in them. Her work often took Helen on long journeys through dense forests on roads that would make a fairground ride seem tame!

Despite finding herself in the midst of the Simba rebellion, where she was assaulted and held captive for several months, she later returned to the renamed 'Zaire' to serve the Lord by working with people there.

In the years that followed, she established a nurses' training college in the hope that the nurses', midwives and health workers who trained there would spread out through the vast northeast region of the country, taking the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ with them.

Through joy and painful trial, teens will be inspired to trust the Lord as Helen did.
