She could not have imagined all that she would witness and experience on her journey... beauty, inspiration, humor; as well as corruption, unimaginable suffering, and shadowy threats from unlikely sources.
Six Years in Mozambique explores one woman's experience of the gritty reality of aid work, sexuality, and spirituality in Sub-Saharan Africa. It takes a raw look at what it's like to be a single woman, on the edge of forty years of age, setting off to chase down Goliath, fully certain of success; and how that incredible journey led her to universal truths and surrender.
With its sweeping honesty, "Six Years in Mozambique" is the portrayal of an every day life turned extraordinary when a purposeful heart overcomes. This is the story of change -- the change that happens to you and because of you. Feeling a pulse on every page, it is the heartbeat of determination that tells the story of where real life meets the world according to Africa.

About the Author
Now, nearly ten years after her arrival in Mozambique, Amy Gillespie tells the full story of her experience answering a Divine call. She reveals the secret that much of her mission and her success were guided by mysterious messages, chance encounters and nebulous symbols. She describes how the simplest approach improved the lives of the most people. She speaks of her own lack of preparation and failures, and how ultimately, her lack of experience and education became her greatest gift.
