From Wales, the land of storytellers, comes the true story of a little Welsh girl who had a dream to become a special schoolteacher. This dream took her on a spiritual and uncertain global journey which tested her faith in God. In An Extraordinary Journey, author Dr. Elizabeth Parry shares her story. From her birth in 1936 in the small Welsh town of Blaenafon, to nearly fifty years in the education field, this memoir narrates Elizabeths life journey. She tells how she witnessed the healing power of love and compassion, resulting in miracles on several occasions in different countries; how she met eminent medical surgeon and past governor of Zhejiang Province, Professor Li Yu, in the Zhejiang Childrens Hospital in Hangzhou, China; her creation of the Family Rehabilitation Programme for Children with Cerebral Palsy; and travels to many parts of the world. An Extraordinary Journey offers a host of inspirational and miraculous narratives, giving hope to those who have lost their faith in life and those with no faith. It offers insight into the life of Elizabeth, a woman who committed herself to the service of others.
