Johanna of Nigeria – Henry Beets

The writer of this book became rather intimately acquainted with its heroine, Miss Johanna Veenstra, in the capacity of Director of Missions of her and his denomination. As such he traveled with her considerably, addressing various meetings of the Women's Missionary Unions of the Christian Reformed Church. As she herself relates in the Preface of her "Pioneering for Christ in the Sudan," it was on account of his suggestion in the matter that she was led to prepare the book just named.
