Ruth was a missionary in Africa for more than 20 years, during which time her witness had to survive war, hostile governments and the most personal of assaults.
Bureaucratic decisions, coups, communist takeovers, natural disasters, sudden deaths - all disrupted plans and brought about unexpected changes in her life.
Ruth wrote about these experiences in her memoir When The Lights Go Out, and she shares them with Jenny Salt.
