About the Book

Irene Neddie Muyambi, The Virtuous Woman explores the life history of a gallant woman who is described by many as a woman of substance, the woman of Proverbs 31. She devoted her life to serving God through her deeds and kindness. She provided for over eight hundred orphans in her lifetime. Irene worked with her husband to build and develop a healing centre, an orphanage, a clinic, a primary and secondary, a convent of nuns of the Community of Holy Fire. She stood as pillar of support for her husband throughout his healing ministry, which spread to different parts of the world (e.g. Singapore, United Kingdom). She lived to bear witness of the flourishment of these projects in Zimbabwe. She devoted her life to caring for the sick, the homeless, the abandoned infants, the outcasts, and the suffering. As a qualified teacher, Irene used her expertise in helping the growth of the Gokwe community.
