“An unforgettable motto”

Englishman William Carey (1761-1834) is often called the father of the modern missionary movement. In his time, the Church of England had stopped sending missionaries to foreign countries. But Carey had a passion to make Christ known to the unreached.

Considering that Carey started out as a shoemaker, his dream of becoming a missionary might seem unlikely. Yet while he made and repaired shoes, his mind and heart were focused mainly on his Lord Jesus and God’s love.

Shortly after becoming pastor of a small church in England, Carey felt called to work in India. He struggled to gather enough funds to make the journey and start a mission there. With a formal education, Carey learned several languages, translated the Bible into Sanskrit and set up schools, places of worship and other ministries.

The building in Leicester, England, where Carey repaired shoes still has his motto stretched across it: “Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God.”

Living for Jesus, Bro. Royce
