About the Author

As a 38-year old woman who had never traveled abroad or even learned a foreign language, Amy Gillespie beat the odds. Working on the ground in Mozambique, Africa, she started a nonprofit with $150 and the idea that all children deserve the right to keep themselves and their siblings alive. Her programs with children and her work for greater HIV awareness and prevention were successful; she was nominated as a finalist for CNN Heroes and received accolades from embassies and aid organizations. But Amy's most difficult trials were yet to come. The hand-off of the programs to local teachers tested her very being.
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.
