“Glenn Geelhoed offers readers
a rare and memorable glimpse in le vrai Afrique—‘the real Africa’—with
the authority of one who has first-hand experience. Out of Assa is
a story full of tenderness, wit, and above all, compassion for the joys and
sorrows of life in rural Africa. Geelhoed’s adventures, misadventures, and
insights into life in the heart of Africa animate this distant land and its
wonderful people. He leaves you feeling as if you have taken the journey
with him.” David Goodman,
author of Fault Lines: Journeys Into the New South
“Dr. Glenn W. Geelhoed has
shown in this book that the real treasures in life are available in the life
of learning the unknown itself. In sharing his medical
experience in Assa, a Congolese village in Central Africa, he reveals what
life’s adventure is all about—a healing experience of the highest inspiration
for all who wish to embrace the transforming power of giving one’s self,
heart and mind for the right cause, and the wealth of nourishment in learning
from and with the poor, the destitute, and the neglected.”
