“In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.” —Proverbs 3:6
William Carey’s India Mission, November 8, 1793
“He was an industrialist, an economist, a medical humanitarian, a media pioneer, an educator, a moral reformer, a botanist, and a Christian missionary. And he did more for the transformation of the Indian subcontinent in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries than any other individual before or since.
o states evangelist Vishal Mangalwadi, one of India’s foremost Christian intellectuals, who carries on Carey’s work in India today. On November 8, 1793, The English missionary William Carey snuck ashore with his wife and children in a rowboat near Calcutta, avoiding the patrols of the East India Company, which had forbade Christian missions in India, the crown jewel of the British Empire. Who was this intrepid Baptist minister of the Gospel, why did he disobey the Company rules, and what did he achieve in the years spent on the subcontinent, so dominated by millions of Hindus and Muslims?
William Carey (1761-1834)
