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.

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
