Love Found a Way – The Journey of a Nurse in China
“We could not have known what those early years would have in store for us,” writes Ruth Winslow in this memoir of serving cross-culturally for 45 years – “learning two languages, enormous moves of home and family, major shifts in work and raising four children in two countries of service.” Yet over and over, love found a way into the lives of the countless people whom were touched through her work.
An adventure story all its own, Ruth’s journey has taken her from a beautiful Canadian farm to the jungles of India, the rolling hills of Kentucky, the crowded cabin of a Pacific Ocean crossing, the exotic remote villages of China and the breathtaking beauty of the Taiwanese backwoods to serve the world’s forgotten.
Travel with Ruth as her young life’s vocation is revealed through a chance friendship with a blind, homeless boy; as she encounters faith as a teenager; as she falls in love with a young college student named Harry. Join her as she meets children abandoned at an orphanage and witnesses the despair of those affected by leprosy. Watch as blind patients receive sight, countless young adults overcome adversity and the injustice of medical stigma, and women marginalized by the world find power and purpose through entrepreneurship.
Most of all, experience the power of Love to impact untold thousands of lives through one nurse’s willingness to say yes – to let love find a way through her heart and into the world.
