Product Description

Zambia Home tells the true story of one missionary nurse's amazing journey in Zambia, Africa, as she grapples with local politics, spiritual warfare, and personal grief. One of the great unsung Christian heroes of our time, Arlene Schuiteman's story will touch your heart and embolden your spirit to declare the glory of God to the next generation.

At age nineteen, Arlene Schuiteman began keeping a journal. That daily discipline continued throughout her life, including thirty-four years of nursing and teaching in three African countries: South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Zambia. She then placed her Africa journals and letters into the hands of her friend, playwright Jeff Barker. He adapted Arlene's writings into plays, and now they have become a book series: Sioux Center SudanIowa Ethiopia, and Zambia Home.

This third book in the trilogy covers the final decade of Arlene's career, starting with the birth of a nation and passing through the death of Arlene's mother. Arlene grapples with radically changing infrastructures and the Zambianization of medicine. Then, as she nears the end of her career, the HTLV-3 virus stuns the world. Arlene's spiritual and emotional journal has never been richer or more complex than this fitting final chapter of her amazing journey.

Arlene's story has the power to transfix, pierce, and heal. This is more than a historical record. Here is a winsome saga that declares the power of God to the next generation.
