This devoted missionary to Africa slowly starved to death. Yet this was the way he faced it: “My prayer is that the Lord my God may be glorified in me whatever it may be, by life or death, and that He will…raise up and send forth other laborers into this harvest, that His name may be magnified, and His kingdom enlarged, in the salvation of multitudes from among the inhabitants of this land.”
These are the words of a man willing to sacrifice everything for the sake of reaching the unreached with the gospel message and asking God to use others beyond his life-span to fulfill the commission given us by the Lord.
