Looking back on a life of struggles and trials, Helen Roseveare shares her testimony of God’s dealings with her – of his all sufficiency and the response which it requires: not just acceptance, but joy in the face of hardship!
I hope that reading this short book will inspire you to look at the Bible with a curiosity that takes you further into the word of God and will drive you to live for him with great determination and passion. ~ Helen Roseveare (1925–2016)
Helen Roseveare (1925–2016) went to the Congo as a missionary between 1953 and 1973. A pioneer of vital medical work in the rainforests of this region, she had a major impact long after she left. Through many trials, she lived out her life striving to serve her Lord with every day and encouraging those around her to do the same.
It's an even greater encouragement reading this book on the other side of Helen Roseveare's home going to heaven, knowing that her struggle is over and she persevered to the end. Let her minister to you in her discouragements, in her victories, and in her perspective as a believer who has finished the race and glorified her Saviour all along the way.

I am glad that Roseveare left us this brief final testament to God's goodness when providence appears to frown. To borrow from the writer of Hebrews, by her faith, she still speaks, even though she is dead.

Count it all Joy exudes love for Christ, delight as well as struggle in serving him, and the wisdom of a tested and seasoned disciple. As always, Helen Roseveare's total commitment to Christ coupled with her biblical realism shine through to both challenge and encourage us.
