2013 is the Livingstone Bicentennial. 19 March marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of David Livingstone. Dr. David Livingstone was the best friend Africa ever had. He was a great Missionary Pioneer pathfinder who dedicated his life to ending the slave trade and opening up Africa for he Gospel.
To mark the Livingstone Bicentenary, Frontline Fellowship has launched a www.livingstone200.org website and a Dr. David Livingstone Facebook page.
At 7:30pm on Thursday, 14 March, Dr. Peter Hammond will present a special PowerPoint presentation on The Life and Legacy of David Livingstone at the Reformation Society.
On Sunday, 17 March, the anniversary of the date David Livingstone landed in South Africa (in 1841) Livingstone Fellowship will hold a special service at 11am.
A special Livingstone 200 Birthday lunch and presentation is planned for Livingstone House, Tuesday, 19 March. Livingstone House has a collection of all of David Livingstone's published works, many of his pictures, maps, photographs and artefacts.
We are also planning a Victoria Falls Livingstone Safari. This is to coincide with the anniversary of Livingstone's sighting, mapping and naming of Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855. It would include a tour of the Falls, a cruise on the Zambezi River, a visit to the Livingstone Museum, and special services and presentations by Dr. Peter Hammond at Livingstone Island and at a local church. Our travel consultant, Irene Millar, will co-ordinate flights and hotel bookings. She will also be able to book electives for those participants who want: River Rafting, Elephant back Safari, Micro-light flights over the Falls, Bungee jumping, Game drives, or Fishing. (Those who want to stay in Zambia after the Livingstone 200 Victoria Falls Safari, or visit Chobe National Park, or Kruger National Park can also book such tours through Irene.) More information is available on www.livingstone200.org under Upcoming Events.
Frontline Fellowship is preparing an In the Footsteps of David Livingstone documentary film and The Life and Legacy of David Livingstone book in co-operation with Nordskog Publishing.
Frontline Fellowship Missionary teams will be conducting special Discipleship Training Seminars and Reformation Seminars in many of the areas where David Livingstone pioneered. David Livingstone was the first Evangelist to proclaim the Gospel in the much of Central Africa. He walked from coast to coast. From the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean Traversing Southern and Central Africa by foot.
It has been the privilege of our missionaries to follow in the footsteps of David Livingstone, witnessing the phenomenal growth of the Churches in those areas where he first ploughed up the hard, stony ground and planted the Gospel seed, with many tears, and on occasion, his own blood.
The sufferings and sacrifices of Dr. David Livingstone, and his perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, is a most inspiring example of excellence.
The 200th anniversary of the birth of Dr. David Livingstone is a unique opportunity to inspire greater missionary vision, Evangelistic zeal, and enthusiasm for applying the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life. Dr. Peter Hammond is available to give special Life and Legacy of David Livingstone presentations to schools, colleges and congregations.
