Editorial Description

Life as a Christian missionary nurse in Africa was never easy, was often heart-wrenching, but was always fulfilling. Author E. Charlese Spencer continues her story from her first book, Welcome, Madam!, in Around the Baobab Tree, an autobiography about her life as a missionary nurse for twenty years in Ghana. While there, Spencer established health clinics, trained young people from Ghana in nursing and midwifery, cared for the sick, delivered many babies, fed the hungry, and even helped to rescue girls from lives of slavery in arranged marriages. Through her example, she was instrumental in leading many Africans to more fulfilling lives in Christ.
