'Come and see.' These were the first words Mother Teresa spoke to the author and journalist Linda Schaefer. These three words had such a profound effect on her that she spent the next twenty-three years on a mission to 'come and see' the impact of this living saint on the people around her and the world at large.
Join Linda on her quest to interview people who worked with Mother Teresa in her ministry. Read first-hand about their encounters and the lessons they learned.
