The Iron Furnace:
A Young Life Abandoned, Plundered and Hated,
but Loved by Jesus
This memoir covers the first twenty-two years of the unusual life of
Pamela Ayn Austen, hated by many, but loved by Jesus. It is a true
account of a child born to suffer, and yet given spiritual faith to hear
the voice of God daily, and to receive his guidance and encouragement
through the trials and testings of a lifetime of agony within the
of nonstop abuse, lies, thefts and injustice.
Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story,
whom he has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.
"I spent years begging the Lord to let me die,
but when he finally answered, he said,
'I have spoken to you more than to most all others.
Shall I take you out of the world so that
no one can see your faith?'"
- Pamela Ayn Austen
