Amanda Bechtel's story is the fictionalized account of the true life experiences of a United Methodist missionary nurse to Mozambique. She learns about life under secret police surveillance as she studies Portuguese in Lisbon. Once Amanda arrives in Mozambique, she must decide about her future after being deported by the Portuguese government. After she's reassigned to Rhodesia, the district health officer quarantines the hospital during a cholera epidemic. Later news reports about conditions in a Rhodesian "protected" village prompt missionaries to visit the site. Film smuggled out of the country eventually provides evidence to defend missionary colleagues accused of subversive activity and treason. On Amanda's return to Mozambique, arrest and torture of Protestant clergy heighten safety concerns at the hospital. Renewed fighting thwarts her amorous involvement with a colleague turned freedom fighter. Jonna-Lynn K. Mandelbaum grew up in eastern Pennsylvania and went to Philadelphia's Methodist Hospital School of Nursing for a diploma in nursing. From there she went to Lebanon Valley College to earn a bachelor's degree prior to her appointment as a United Methodist missionary nurse to Mozambique. On her return from Africa she worked as a pediatric nurse practitioner in the inner city and earned a master's degree in public health from The Johns Hopkins University. She wrote THE MISSIONARY AS A CULTURAL INTERPRETER to earn a doctorate in education from Georgia State University. While she has taught nursing in the United States and held various clinical nursing positions international health was the dominant focus of her professional career. She developed and implemented educational programs for both undergraduate and continuing education programs for physicians, nurses, midwives and other health professionals in southeast Asia and central and eastern Europe. Now retired, she resides in northern New Mexico with her husband and two dogs. To find out more visit www.jonna-lynn.com
