Welcome! Read testimonies of real missionaries in the field - their struggles, their faith, their triumphs.  We've added some stories from our friends around the web, too.  Most recently, we are diving into the forgotten history of African missionaries!  Enjoy.

During the absence of the missionaries, a revival took place in Lesotho under the leadership of Basotho Christians. The pioneering work of Maphike and Seele was indicative of the growing maturity of the church in Lesotho, whose numbers had increased from 1000 in 1843 to about 2,200 in 1864 (and this figure would double during the following decade). They influenced the following generation of Basotho Christians who took the Gospel to the north east part of South Africa and then to parts of Zimbabwe and Zambia. Read the whole story here.
