Tracing the Golden Thread
The autobiography of nurse Mary Weeks.
An inspiring story from the frontline of practical faith in action. Mary Weeks Millard, a quiet and unassuming girl overcomes social shyness and childhood illness and a poor educational start to aspire to her heart’s call to become a nurse on the mission field. She tells her own unique and inspiring life story by painting a colourful and often graphic picture of training as a nurse and midwife in the UK in the 1950s. Pressing ahead against all the odds Mary finds doors opening as she exercises her faith in a God of possibilities. These doors lead her to adventures and challenges of working in East and Central Africa in the years following independence and civil war before returning to equally challenging situations in UK.
Who knows what God has in store for each one of us? If there is a burning desire within our hearts to reach out and touch the lives of others in practical and spiritual ways this story is an encouragement for us all.
As life has a way of weaving and turning so Mary found that each step of her journey was already planned and prepared, offering the opportunity to touch the lives of many people abroad and back in the UK.
