They will shoot you on the mountain pass.' As the Communists gained control of China, all foreigners were forced out. The small team in Lisu province loaded their mules and set out across the mountains. As they ascended the icy slopes, the bleak mists mirrored their inner distress. Joan had spent years trying to get to China. War and family problems had hampered her progress. Did God even want her there? But finally, reaching Zhajoue, Joan felt that she belonged somewhere. Then the communists came. Did God really have a plan? 60 years on, God's faithfulness and sovereignty are clear. Joan's story shows there are some lessons we can only learn with hindsight.
Dr Ronald Clements moved with his wife, Anne, and young daughters to China in 1986, where he lectured in Civil Engineering at a university in Fujian Province until 1996. Ronald is now a full-time writer and researcher and lives in Kent.
