Robin - Read Mary Slessor's biography (Christian Heroes of Faith: Then & Now series)

I really admire Mary’s faith and determination to share the gospel with people who have never heard it. She was content living in harsh conditions and put her life in danger so many times as long as it meant that she could teach people about how much God loved them. She literally just relied on God’s word and prayer to accomplish so much of her mission work in Calabar, Africa and she did it all so calmly and joyfully. Mary still had a lot of fears, faced a lot of discouragement and had no particular skills in medicine or speaking but she was very reliant on God and obedient to love his people in Calabar the best she could and continue to tell them about the gospel as much as she could.
