Modest Maud's faith and bravery is an inspiration for all
In today's increasingly secular world people of faith are often sneered at. But doughty Cookstown woman Maud Kells, who has spent more than four decades helping improve people's lives in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo, demonstrates in spades how faith can move mountains.
She feels her work in that country is God-driven and she has braved repeated rebellions to help provide vital facilities. In January this year she narrowly escaped death when shot by robbers, yet her love for the ordinary people in the Congo is undiminished. Now aged 75, she is a remarkable and modest woman who has made heroism seem an everyday occurrence.
