This is the story of a Baltimore Quaker, who experienced strong guidance to serve as a nurse with AFSC, in Europe after WW I. She had always disliked the idea of nursing, until in 1918, at age 21, she heard a lecture by a woman just returned from France about the great need for nurses. She suddenly felt lifted outside of herself and held in the hand of God, which turned her spirit slowly to the opposite direction. She returned to her body, full of joy, knowing that God wanted her to be a nurse. She trained for two years and then went to Poland with a joint British and American Friends mission.
