SALT - Conversations with Jenny

15 September 2020    Episode 30 - When The Lights Go Out - Ruth

Length: 33:30   Download MP3

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.

In 1960 Ruth Myors left Australia to work as a midwife with the Somali people. For over two decades she served in a hospital in Somalia, a village in Ethiopia and a radio ministry in Kenya.

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.

Trigger alert: This episode contains some distressing details of assault.
