Qualified as a doctor, Helen Roseveare packed up her life in England and set off to be a missionary in the Belgian Congo, to set up hospitals and rural clinics. In work that took Helen on long journeys through dense forests, she endured many trials, including a lengthy imprisonment during the Simba Rebellion.

But she continued her work in the re-named nation of Zaire, believing that the work of the kingdom of God supercedes any politics by which men merely change the name of nations. Through her work with nurses, midwives and health workers, she spread the good news of Jesus Christ.
