Snippets of Rachel's Logotherapy journey 

She described her studies in Vienna and her vision for Nigeria in the following crucial article,

which was published in 1993. It includes a photo that was taken by Dr. Lukas' husband, Gerhard in Furstenfeldbruck, Germany. They would all remain good friends for the years to come.
