All the nations of the earth have been blessed by God through the descendants of Abraham. Through the centuries Isaac's sons have blessed the nations in many ways. One of the greatest friends Africa ever had was Dr. David Livingstone (the bicentennial of whose birth we will be celebrating this year.) 19 March 2013, will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of David Livingstone. He was a great missionary pioneer pathfinder whose greatest desire was granted only after his death: the cessation of the slave trade and the opening up of Africa to Christianity and lawful commerce.
Livingstone the Liberator
He had the grace to see that his Mission was part of a Divine plan to set many souls free from slavery, both physical and spiritual. Livingstone’s great goal of bringing to the world’s attention the scourge of the Islamic slave trade in Africa was achieved largely through the work of his convert, American journalist Henry Morton Stanley.
