Product description

"Years later I told another single woman friend, 'I have not sat around waiting for God to bring my life to fruition.' 'Yeah', she said regretfully, 'but I did.'"

This story summarises the character of Margaret Anne Lawson, known to many as Annie. No stranger to wild living, she was saved by grace and called to a most unusual sphere of service. An MAF engineer, hangar foreman and evangelist in Africa for over a decade, she was called Matika (Child of Grace) by locals, Patronne by her awe-struck staff, and 'Tool Waitress' by a fellow engineer who felt threatened by her formidable gifts.

The pages throughout brim with humour, startling imagery of life in Africa, and larger-than-life characters. Exorcisms, perilous journeys, police corruption, rotten goat meat, mysterious illnesses, and a distinct lack of personal space are only some of the trials of missionary life described.

Despite suffering reverse culture shock after leaving missionary service, Annie found a new mission with Christians Against Poverty and married at the age of 48. A journey with cancer concludes the story of a woman who considered herself to be God's servant in all circumstances.

You will be inspired as you marvel at the life story of this most amazing of women!
