Lillian Oliveira ’62 (Nursing) recently published her autobiography, An Irrepressible Passion – Pointing People Heavenward. From age 14, her calling to missionary service focused all of her plans. After completing her nursing degrees, she was led on an incredibly varied and adventurous path: God took her through five continents, five languages and cultures, and many different branches of ministries: from medical work to teaching Bible studies, to teaching Seminary courses, to leadership positions with the denominational Women’s Ministries Executive Committee, to serving as chaplain to the International Christian Women’s Club in Brazil, to Home Bible Studies in the States, to serving on the Executive Board of the Olive Branch Mission in Chicago, and many other things. The Lord saw her through a communist take-over in Mozambique, a cholera epidemic and major medical responsibilities in Congo where there was no doctor; a visit to a refugee camp in Tanzania, and, in the middle of all this, to a late marriage and the struggles that go along with a family trying to blend. Her story includes hair-raising frights, mind-boggling adventures and both heart-ache and much laughter. To learn more about the book, click here.
