Missing, believed killed (Life Stories) [eBook]
An In 1964 Margaret Hayes—a British nurse working in the Congo—was caught up in a bloody rebellion where dozens of her colleagues were brutally massacred. For eight months Margaret was missing, and believed killed. She will protest that it was not her personal faith but the One in whom she placed her faith that brought light into the cruelty of those terrible months. Her capture, and chilling experiences at the hands of the rebels, and her eventual release, are described in this compelling book. Although harrowing, this is a tale of human courage, and a testimony to the God of miracles.
Margaret Hayes is a retired missionary nurse who had considerable experience in the Congo and in the Republic of Niger. She now lives in retirement in Surbiton, Surrey, and is a member of Hook Evangelical Church.
