“Stir Me” is a four-part series of messages from Doctor Helen Roseveare, a physician who served Jesus in the Belgian Congo in the 1950s and 1960s, the years prior to the nation’s battle for independence. Dr. Roseveare dedicated her life to serving others amidst difficult circumstances, political persecution, and imprisonment. She pioneered vital medical work in the rainforest of what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo and assisted the local churches. She continued serving there through the nation’s rebellion, serving when others fled for their lives.
In this series of messages, Dr. Rosevere speaks candidly about life as a missionary, one who was admittedly a proud, stubborn, “know-it-all” who had difficulty working with others. These messages transcend time, applying to us today as much as they did to those in the audience the day the words were spoken. In this first message, Dr. Roseveare reminds us how each one of us is necessary to building the kingdom of God–from the smallest to the greatest. In building the church in this day, everyone needs to participate. Almighty God invites us to share in working out His plan. As you listen, consider what you are doing with this invitation. Are you responding as one who has a willing heart?
