Doctor Helen Roseveare was a missionary to what was then known as the Belgian Congo in the mid-1960s.
It was a time of horrific war, killing many, to include dozens of missionaries.
Helen saw friends shot, dropped into mass graves, and more. She was a victim of terrible brutalization and abuse, but survived.
Decades later, in a letter to Alistair Begg, she wrote, "The phrase God gave me years ago, during the 1964 rebellion in the Congo, in the night of my own greatest need, was this: 'Can you thank Me for trusting you with this experience, even if I never tell you why?'"
