Special Report: Helen Roseveare at MU Visitors' Night


Last night, Aghavea Mothers' Union were delighted to welcome Dr Helen Roseveare to their annual Visitors' Night. Helen is a renowned medical missionary and author, who is still going strong for the Lord as she comes close to her 90th birthday. A packed church hall hung on her every word as she shared on the theme of the 'Wheel of Life' - being complete in him, having Jesus at the centre, ourselves as the spokes bringing the love of Christ to the rim, the part of the world where we are.

The audio file from her talk can be listened or downloaded: Helen Roseveare at Aghavea.
