Opis: Mission Work in Sierra Leona, West Africa (Classic Reprint) - Mills Job Smith

Excerpt from Mission Work in Sierra Leona, West Africa

For over forty years a band of devoted men and women have been toiling in an obscure field on the west coast of Africa. In their schools they have trained for usefulness several hundred of the youth, and have gathered over six thousand converts into native churches.

Early in May, 1898, a heathen mob, displeased at the rapid progress of Christian civilization, and angry over the just requirements of the British Government, swept like a fierce hurricane over this mission field and the surrounding country, murdering seven American missionaries, many native pastors, and several hundred converts, and burning the mission property.

This little volume tells the story by those personally familiar with it It also gives assurance that neither the burning fevers of the climate nor the blazing fagots and fiercer fury of the "war boys" shall prevent our completing the divinely appointed task in Sierra Leone. Rather will this baptism of fire and blood lead our people to a nobler consecration, and prepare the way among the heathen for a more fruitful harvest to be gathered into the Master's garner.

As I have passed through these pages I have lived over again happy days spent in this mission field. Once more, I have enjoyed the courtesies of the gentlemanly British officers - in the governor's palace and in the police captain's mud hut - so refreshing in this dark land; again, I have renewed the joys of the glorious friendships of this heroic baud of missionaries, American and native, all dear to me as my own kindred.
