Signed by the author with sentiment on title page. Foreword by Rev. David Cornelius. Born in Hampton, VA and raised in Philadelphia, PA, G. Kathryn Anderson was educated within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, graduating from John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School. After moving to Atlanta, Georgia in 1988, she graduated from DeKalb Community College with an Associate degree in Business Administration and later from Mercer University with a Bachelor’s degree in Organization Leadership. From the time of her childhood and as a teen in her all-girls Catholic High School in Philadelphia, she felt a call on her heart to serve overseas as a missionary. After several voluntary short-term missionary experiences in Liberia, Kenya, England, and Haiti, she completely submitted to God’s will and made herself available to serve. Throughout her adult life she has earned her living through a career as an Administrative Professional in Corporate America. However, when she felt the call of God to serve with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention in South Korea for two years, she resigned her position to follow her heart and God’s call. Upon her return to the United States, she worked for several additional years as an Administrative Professional in the non-profit sector and retired in 2006. This book is about the author’s life dream of working on the International mission field, and the experiences she encountered preparing for and endeavoring to fulfill God’s call on her life. Condition: Very good.
