Celebrating Dr. David Livingstone’s Bicentenary


David Livingstone
“If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don’t want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.”

“I will place no value on anything I have or may possess except in relation to the kingdom of Christ.”

“All that I am I owe to Jesus Christ, revealed to me in His divine Book.”

March 19, 2013 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of the great Christian explorer and missionary, Dr. David Livingstone.

David Livingstone (19 March 1813 – 1 May 1873) was a Scotsman who went to Africa as a medical missionary. He discovered the source of the Nile, naming Victoria Falls after England’s queen. He also saw the horrors of the slavery first-hand and pushed for the abolition of slavery.
