Real people, incredible, inspiring true stories for ages 10 AND up!As John stared at a map of Australia in his office, he wondered how he would ever raise enough money and recruit enough staff to bring physical and spiritual help to all who needed it. It seemed an impossible dream, yet one that he refused to give up.
While studying to be a minister, John Flynn longed to apply his training to help people in practical ways. Soon he discovered that his mission field was inside his own countryâ€”the vast and dangerous outback, or Never Never, where life-and-death struggles were a constant reality.
A man bursting with ideas and energy, John strove endlessly to support isolated bushmen through innovations in radio and flight. Serving as superintendent of the Australian Inland Mission and moderator general of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, he established desperately needed medical facilities and helped found the Flying Doctor Service. This national heroâ€™s lifelong efforts continue to touch lives across Australia (1880-1951).
