On a Hill Far Away: Journal of a Missionary Doctor in Rwanda


On a Hill Far Away: Journal of a Missionary Doctor in Rwanda brings us shoulder to shoulder with the people and the turmoil of Rwanda, Africa. The accounts come from the personal journal of Dr. Albert Snyder during a tumultuous time in the history of Rwanda. You will relive every kind of emotion and intellectual experience as seen through the eyes of one who loves Rwanda, its people and his medical work there.

This doctor’s journal is timely in both world and human history. He significantly shows the tension points of a missionary’s life: family concerns, ethical decisions (Who gets the medicine when it’s scarce?), spiritual concerns. Snyder’s account tells of people working together under the worst circumstances, performing the miracles that only God can provide through His faithful people.
