Read the true story of Helen Roseveare, a missionary doctor in central Africa.

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

I’ve loved Helen Roseveare’s story since I became a Christian. Her faithfulness in suffering is one to encourage both children and adults alike. This is a wonderful story of perseverance that I will read to my children over and over again!
