When God shapes our lives to fit his purposes, anything is possible!

Raised in a strict Christian sect, with many religious rules and social requirements, Joan struggled to reconcile the lifestyle she was expected to lead with the example that Jesus set for his disciples. Her desire to follow Christ in all things, including ‘eating with sinners’, soon compelled her to leave behind all that was familiar.

A short term ‘Mission to Miners’ in France stirred a passion within her to become a missionary overseas. Formerly a teacher of severely deaf children, she soon found herself working for Wycliffe Bible Translators in the Amazon forest. Unexpected family joys and deep sorrow were to follow, but through all things God was shaping Joan to be an integral part of his divine masterpiece.
