Things didn't look very promising for Norma Rice. At 45, she was a widow and was then diagosed with breast and lymph node cancer, with no medical insurance. But God had plans for Norma, and they were good.

Come to the Tahlequah Aglow Lighthouse Meeting and hear about this missionary to Peru, who also is a graduate of Victory Bible Institue and World Mission Training.

Norma founded Women of Truth Ministries that reaches out to the lost, the hurting, and the impoverished in Peru. Through her organization many children are sponsored and able to attend school in Peru. A multitude of people find hope to live everyday through this organization.
