One woman’s journey from reluctance to ‘all in’ as she participates in the transformation of a poverty-stricken Ugandan village. Along with the H.E.L.P. International team Pam McCormick has spent the last decade experiencing the joy of seeing: illiteracy turned to knowledge, women empowered, sick attended, businesses built, employment and support thrusting this mission further down the weed-infested path to sufficiency.This is Pam’s account of God’s faithfulness to her new friends and herself as she endeavors to bless those less fortunate. In this legacy of love, part memoir and part inspiration, she fights for her marriage, rides the rapids of the Nile, weeps over the sick and dying and falls in love with exotic, beautiful Africa. From government collaborations, brushes with royalty, witch doctors, miracles, prophesies, baptisms and even an earthquake, Pam’s story reveals how an ordinary person can experience significance and be blessed through colorful, exciting, heart-wrenching adventures.
