Aunt Tena Called to Serve
2 In Stock
Journals and Letters of Tena A. Huizinga, Missionary Nurse to Nigeria
Editors Jacob E. Nyenhuis, Robert P. Swierenga and Lauren M. Berka; Essays by Harry Boonstra
When Tena Huizenga felt the call to serve as a missionary nurse to Africa, she followed that call and served seventeen years at Lupwe, Nigeria, during a pivotal era in world missions. As she ministered to the natives, she recorded her thoughts and feelings in a diary and in countless letters to family and friends, over 350 in her first year alone.
Through her eyes, we see the Lupwe mission, Tena's colleagues, and the many native helpers. Aunt Tena (Nigerians called all female missionaries "Aunt") tells this profoundly human story. Interesting in its own right, the book will also prove invaluable to historians, sociologists, and genealogists as they mine this rich resource.
