Reviews - What do customers think about Helen Roseveare: What's in the parcel? (Little Lights)?
Story about a lesser known missionary Mar 15, 2010
I bought this and three other books (David Livingstone, Hudson Taylor, and Amy Carmichael) in the Little Lights series. I purchased them for two reasons. One, I was looking for a story about a missionary to read/tell to my church's toddler/preschool Sunday School class. Two, I wanted to get some missionary stories for my personal library for my own two-year old daughter. This book about Helen Roseveare will definitely fill both needs. The story is child-friendly as it briefly describes Helen's childhood, and then goes on to tell her involvement as a medical missionary/nurse who works in a hospital and an orphanage in Africa. As a read-aloud, the story contains an aspect of acting out/storytelling which can easily be incorporated into the story to help keep little ones' attention. I plan to use a box with the items that Helen Roseveare received to keep the focus on the story and what God miraculously provided. As additions to my own library, this (and the other purchased stories) will be great introductions to Protestant missionaries.
These four stories (I can't speak for the others in the series) would be GREAT additions to a church library. They are orthodox, and place great emphasis on prayer, God's will for one's life, and the necessity of personal salvation.
