The incredible, faith-inspiring story of a waitress from the slums of London's East end who became a pioneer missionary in Portuguese Guinea, now Guinea-Bissau in West Africa.
Bessie Brierley attended missionary meetings conducted by Norman P. Grubb. "Mr. Grubb," she asked in a bold Cockney way, "is there any chance that a girl like me could become a missionary?" "Yes," he replied, "It is the Holy Spirit who makes missionaries."
For her first two years abroad she made her home with an African seamstress. When she returned for her furlough she left behind a group of twenty converts, most of whom were men. it was then that "The woman is the man to do it!" a new slogan coined by the Worldwide Evangelisation Crusade, now WEC International for which the letters WEC stand for Worldwide Evangelisation for Christ.
