MAMA LUKA

RECENT EVENTSPosted by Douglas J H Mowat Thu, February 23, 2017 10:06:18

At Tea@2 in Fortrose this week the subject was the life of Dr Helen Roseveare - otherwise known as Mama Luka.

Helen Roseveare passed away in December 2016, leaving an incredible legacy. She served as a medical missionary in Congo during the brutal civil war, and suffered beatings and rape at the hands of the Simba rebels. Despite the trauma of her experiences, Helen returned to Congo established training hospitals and spread the Gospel of the grace of God. She counted it a 'privilege' to suffer for Christ. She returned to the UK in 1973 and was held in high esteem by Christians all over the world.

Although deeply religious, she was not converted until 1945 while studying at Cambridge. Her devotion to Christ and surrender to His will was complete, and we marvel at what God can do with a life given over into His hands ...

"Whose faith follow ..." (Heb.13:7).

The next Tea@2 will be held on 22 March - plan to be there! The subject will be another giant of faith - George Muller.
