Publishers Description Emma Stratton tells of the highs and lows of living in a third world country. Emma Stratton was just an ordinary student when she first visited India - and what she saw there transformed her life. Longing to start a career in relief work, she went out to the Sudan and worked distributing seeds and tools to hungry farmers. But then disaster struck - she developed epilepsy and her career in the world's most desperate areas seemed over. Determined to continue, this book tells of her battle with her condition, her time rebuilding houses in Kosovo and installing bathrooms in Serbia, the problems of facing up to her own feelings about those she was sent to help, and how she coped with extremes of weather, strange diets and being away from her family. Humor and humanity shine through in this lively account of life in some of the most difficult areas of the world. Emma covers it all - the highs, the lows, the anguish, the amusing, the things that stretched her faith - and strengthened it. * A story that will open eyes and challenge hearts.* Lets people see the 'normal' face of a Christian girl, not the super-spiritual or the sacrificial.* Gives insight into life in the third world.* Told with honesty and humor.
