william-carey-pd-usaToday is the birthday of William Carey, “The Father of Modern Missions.”

At first, his superiors wouldn’t confirm his call. Nor the need to send missionaries at all. Driven to spread the gospel overseas, William preached and wrote about it until his peers formed a missions board. They sent William and another man to India.

It wasn’t easy. There were personal losses on the road to winning souls for God. He invested his last 42 years in India, opening the door to the great missionary century of the 1800s.
