$12.99 $10.75

Doctor Helen Roseveare, affectionately called Mama Luka, pioneered vital medical work in the Rain forests of the Belgian Congo – now the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Throughout her eight years in training for the mission field, and her first twelve years in the Congo, Helen Roseveare had prayed that God would bless her ministry with a manifestation of His glory and power among the tribal peoples she was ministering to. God’s answers to her formed the basis of her best-selling autobiography Give me This Mountain. Then she endured civil war, a brutal rape, and found herself having to re-start her work from the very beginning.

The Latest Chapter of an Inspirational Life

Doctor Helen Roseveare, affectionately called Mama Luka, pioneered vital medical work in the Rain forests of the Belgian Congo – now the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Throughout her eight years in training for the mission field, and her first twelve years in the Congo, Helen Roseveare had prayed that God would bless her ministry with a manifestation of His glory and power among the tribal peoples she was ministering to. God’s answers to her formed the basis of her best-selling autobiography Give me This Mountain. Then she endured civil war, a brutal rape, and found herself having to re-start her work from the very beginning.

During these experiences, she began to learn the vital lesson that God’s work also thrives when we are in dark valleys. This inspiring book continues her story, showing that when God’s blessings seem to have been withdrawn, we later discover that they were there all the time, but in a different form than we expected.
