USA – How faith won in dark Africa – October 15, 2020

One of the greatest missionaries in South Africa in the early days of missionary occupation of that country had labored seven years without a convert in sight. The natives seemed to be entirely immune to the appeal of Christ. At the end of this time a friend wrote from England asking the missionary what he needed most. The missionary wrote back to his friend, saying that they must have a “communion set”. Three more years passed by before the message could go and return from the native land. But the missionary continued faithful to his task of preaching “the unsearchable riches of Christ.” On the day before the ten unfruitful years came to a close the communion set arrived; and on the next day the first convert was baptized and received the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper. This was blind faith, the “enduring as seeing Him who is invisible.”
