William Carey, the Great Missionary

Some 200+ year ago a cobbler in English had a great passion to preach the Gospel to the nations that had not heard about Jesus. His preacher friends told him, “Sit down, young man, if God wants the heathen to have the Gospel He will do is without our assistance!”

He did not let them dissuade him but pursued his calling. Carey let nothing stop him but went to India. He never looked back, but spent 40 years there, preaching the Gospel and translating Scripture, to 34 languages! Even when a print shop fire destroyed all his work and papers they had just received from England for printing one of the Bible translations, he did not give up.

You can download 6 story pages. I hope this will inspire you and the children and youth in your life to do God’s mission work today. Jesus’ Commission is still standing.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

Expect great things

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
