When the Miracle Comes Slowly

Beatriz Benestad's Remarkable Mission to Colombia

Beatriz Benestad

ISBN: 9781852407872 [152 pages]

This is the remarkable story of a very remarkable lady! Faced with crippling rheumatoid arthritis as a child and having dozens of operations, Beatriz Benestad did not let her disability obliterate her vision - both for practising medicine and serving the Lord.

Then, having eventually qualified as a Doctor and Psychiatrist, she suffered a terrible accident while at work, resulting in her being a wheelchair user ever since. But even that did not blur her vision for serving the Lord as a missionary. Her journey of faith and amazing trust in God led to her becoming a missionary in Colombia, South America, in 2002, where she now leads the Colombian work of Ellel Ministries. 

Beatriz’s response to her calling, and the unmistakeable hallmark of God on every stage of her life, will challenge and encourage you as you share her journey into mission service, despite all the practical difficulties. 

For some the miracle does not come overnight and for Beatriz, it is life itself and the pilgrimage she is on that is the real miracle. “It’s easy to forget that if darkness did not exist, I would not be able to rejoice in the light,” she says.

Book Review

With human understanding it is impossible to comprehend how Beatriz has been able to handle her difficult and life-long health issues. With her zest for life still intact, she even became a missionary in a country far from familiar shores. When we read her story it is clear that heavenly forces lifted her up, time and time again...
– A. Mosevoll, Norwegian Reviewer
