Format Paperback Subject Literary Collections Publisher Xlibris Corp

About the Author:

The extreme and almost impassible economic and family obstacles, the distance away from the nearest school and a deep quest for an education compel Micah to leave home at the age of nine. In the shelter of his two older brothers, he secures employment and attends night school. When it fails, his determination forces him to be employed on a farm and has part of his wages withheld for school the following year. At the end of the year, his African employer cheats him of his wages. In desperation he seeks for employment again and gets employed this time by a British spinster who becomes his benefactor beyond high school. He trains at the local seminary and becomes a minister. At the request of churches in US, he is sent as a "missionary", and a year later they sponsor him to return to US for higher education. He ends up with a doctoral degree in education, and returns to Africa to support his family and serve his newly independent country
