On the day of her eighth birthday, Helen sat in Sunday school cutting and sticking pictures of far-away countries and, in her heart, made a decision:

“When I grow up, I will travel the world and tell other boys and girls about Jesus.”

Follow her life story from medical student to missionary doctor in the heart of Africa and all the ups and many downs she experienced there, including being held as a prisoner for many months. Discover how her faith kept her going as she remembered to “Be still, and know that I am God”. (Psalm 46 v 10)

This beautifully illustrated children's biography of Helen Roseveare (1925-2016) is part of the Do Great Things For God series which shows how God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. It will enthuse young children about the great things they can do for God.

Can be read to young children aged 4-5, and read by children aged 6 plus.

I would love to think that this powerful story of faith, sacrifice, courage and perseverance would inspire another generation of children to give their lives in the service of Jesus.

Children want heroes. While they may look for them in fictional accounts of magical powers or super-human strength, Christian biographies offer up true stories that invite children to see the greatness of God’s power at work through his people. As parents, we have the opportunity to introduce our children to heroes like “Helen Roseveare: The Doctor Who Kept Going No Matter What.” I pray that this book will inspire a new generation of missionaries who faithfully serve all over the world.
