Reviews - What do our customers think?
--  Apr 18, 2009
When Bob and Rosemay Jensen (now former executive director of Bible Study Fellowship) sailed to Africa 50 years ago, they were sure God had called them to work there as missionaries for the rest of their lives. They established a hospital in Tanzania, but returned to America after only nine years. It wasn't until 1986 that the couple again caught the vision for Africa, this time circumstances having changed as the continent was being ravaged by AIDS. The Jensens formed an organization called Rafiki, which is Swahili for Friend. The group now operates villages in 10 African countries and is in the process of establishing satellite villages in each of those nations. Each village houses up to 160 orphan children, has employment preparatory schools for 120 teenagers, as well as a medical clinic.

A Heart for Africa is the story of Rafiki, told through the eyes of the Jensens' daughter, Annie (Jensen) Thorp. This short book (62 pages) features firsthand accounts of orphans whose lives have been changed, as well as the voices of house mothers and financial sponsors. As an inspirational book, it also features many pictures of Africans and the work Rafiki is doing. A Heart for Africa is worth reading, especially for those familiar with Rafiki, or looking for an organization to plug into. It inspires the reader to dream big, and not just to sit back and say, "It's so overwhelming." The final chapter clearly lays out Rafiki's vision, as well as opportunities to get involved, such as short and long-term missions, prayer groups, and church partnerships.

 
A Heart for Africa  Jan 12, 2009
The product was in perfect condition when it arrived. Very quick shipping. I am extremely happy with the purchase, thank you!
 
Fascinating book  Apr 27, 2008
The book is well-written with excellent photography mostly by the author. It is mind-boggling all the things Rosemary Jensen's heart for Africa has accomplished. An inspiration to read what one woman can accomplish under God's direction.
