A couple of years back, I wrote about our experiences in Kenya while on a mission trip. I stopped before I completed the series, though; the next episodes were fairly emotional, and I was traveling a lot on business at the time and my notes were in a box somewhere. i no longer have that excuse, but the emotions remains.
On Day 7, we met an amazing woman named Sister Freda. She had spent her life caring for the most destitute of Kenyans, and was the kindest, gentlest woman I think I’ve ever met.
If you like books about people who have made a difference in the world, you will enjoy Heart of Compassion, Hands of Care by Darlene Sala by WingSpread Publishers. It is the biography of Sister Freda Robinson, a Kenyan nurse who refuses to accept defeat, dismissing the advice that nothing can be done for the poverty-stricken people of her country.
I’m ordering a copy right away; this world would be more beautiful with woman like Sister Freda Robinson.
