David Livingstone was a medical
missionary with the London Missionary Society. He was born in Scotland in 1813,
but spent most of his life in Africa as an explorer and doctor. Coupled with
his love for the Lord and desire to spread the Gospel, Livingstone used his
understanding of nature and science to help him map much of southern Africa.
Livingstone never stayed long in any
one place. He was driven to map the continent of Africa in preparation for the
many missionaries who would come after him.
Livingstone is considered one of the
greatest missionary heroes. God has used his life to open doors for the Gospel.
