Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." This is Sustah Maggie’s inspiration for her memoir An Ear to Hear: A Guide for the Laity (published by AuthorHouse). She shares God-given mission which sent her to Africa to indigent children in Kenya’s Kibera Village.

“As soon as they heard that she was leaving her job, children, and her country, without a valid reason, they were certain that she needed psychiatric help,” writes Maggie about her friends and family.

Less than a week after Maggie arrived in Kenya she met a couple that desperately needed help at an elementary school. As soon as she saw the school, she understood her calling and volunteered as the headmistress. Her first task was to plan a graduation for the first class to finish under her leadership. Maggie writes:

That marked just the beginning of her troubles. In order to have the graduation it required a government permit. But since graduations were held at the university level, a graduation for children was viewed as useless and unthinkable. Maggie’s request was denied.

Readers will find that against obstacles seen and unseen, Maggie accomplishes much on behalf of the people of Kenya. She implemented a sponsorship program that provided supplies and food, co-founded a 200 member English-speaking Nairobi Gospel Center (NGC) and trained mothers to do handcrafts and to market their wares.

An Ear to Hear is “page after page of wickedness in high places, deprivations in an under-developed country, satanic forces, and even death team up to defeat her mission,” says Maggie.

Thereafter, her personal work extended to Germany, Spain and Africa. She was destined to fulfill an intricate role in Kenya, with a taskforce that was hand-picked by God.
