Missionaries of all Christian creeds cite a passage in the Bible, the most famous of which appears in the Book of Matthew, in which Jesus asks his followers to "make disciples of all nations". What do missionaries do? John Allen (no relation of John Allen Chau) and his wife Lena - a registered midwife and nurse - have worked as Christian missionaries in Papua New Guinea for 15 years. Five PNG nationals and three American nurses work with them at the Kunai Health Centre, and as well as treating illnesses and wounds, the team have set up a number of programmes for expectant mothers and new-born babies.

  • I obtained this book because I was acquainted with its author during a part of her tenure in the Far East. I had lost track of her over the many years since her service in Vietnam and other parts of the Far East. I was fascinated to now to read her first-person account of the experiences she had in Vietnam as a war-time missionary nurse. It is a vivid human account that reflects clearly her thoughts, feelings and powerful struggles through the embattled environment in which this intrepid young nurse served God and mankind. She had an inner fortitude and a tried-but-true faith that impelled her to stick to the higher purposes of her calling even at personal sacrifice. In writing the book, she is an inspiration to others who are serving or contemplating serving God in a challenging overseas missionary capacity. She was a model worker who, in the end, has been shown the benefits of putting personal conveniences as secondary to the call of duty itself. Her life makes the case for strength of character over personal desires. Kudos to Marilyn Bennett!

  • What an awesome story of courage and strength!!! Ms. Marilyn makes you feel like you're right there standing next to her while she describes her excursions and dangerous experiences. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a "you can't put me down until you're done reading" winner.

  • I know this lovely lady and can tell you her story is worth every penny to read!

  • I very much enjoyed Marilyn's writing and story. It has definitely inspired a lot of thought in me. Her situation and world in the book are obviously very different than anything I've had to experience (so far at least). As I describe about myself in the prologue of my own book A Little Light Under the Sun, "he had been moderately successful and had enjoyed good health during his life. As such, he spent most of his time, when not working, enjoying himself at a variety of leisure activities, all of which he showed average skill in performing."

    Oh, I've found my ways to gripe and complain about my sheltered and easy existence. I became skilled at manufacturing sadness and intellectual depression in the midst of complete comfortableness - how very laughable it now is to look back at my imaginary woes and the horde of injustices I found around me, affronts to my ego, disrespects of my grand presence. Ha! God and I both enjoy a chuckle as we mutually look back on the old me. I imagine Him sitting next to me now, giving me a gentle elbow to the rib and knowing grin as we look backward. I find it strangely comforting now that I can look back on times that I experienced so much mental grief (since I've never really experienced any real external grief) and be entertained by them.

    In her book Marilyn reminds me of how "God never leads His children anywhere they would not choose to be led, if they could see the end from the beginning". Despite the vast difference in our experiences and lives, I am struck by how this truth remains constant for all of us. For me, even in my 31 years of atheism, God was there, even if I was unaware, and he formed my life in such a wonderful way that I can look back on all that happened to me and all I went through in my mind and see him there all along, and I can laugh at myself, at the ridiculousness of who I was and how I thought. Its not just a tragedy. Its quite funny actually. Thanks, Marilyn, for re-reminding me of this with your book. My life hasn't really been what I sometimes think...it wasn't just a random chaotic meaningless set of ups and downs that finally got righted when I found God. Even my previous life had purpose...it was formed into a story...a funny story when told from the perspective of the present. Very much liking a good funny story with a happy ending, its what I myself would have chosen. Praise God! That being said, I couldn't have played the part had I known it to be just an act...so even God's patience in waiting 31 years before reaching out to me, was crucial to the stories I am now enabled to write.

    When I started this book, I expected the era of its writing to be alien enough to me (I was 7 in 1976 when it was published) that I would not relate. Oh, how foolish I was. Marilyn does a great job of transcending time, of laying out an internal journey, in the face of horrific external circumstances. Her willingness to trust God inspired me in my own walk with God.

    Marilyn, you did a great job, both in Vietnam and in recounting the experience. Know that even now your experience and story has helped encourage and develop a fellow journeyer with God... namely me. I salute you (no military pun intended!)
