Missionary David Brainerd ministered in the 1700s to native tribes on the American frontier. He introduced the gospel to the Mohican tribe, then to the Delaware tribe. He endured health problems and other hardships. But he served faithfully for as long as he could.
David Brainerd kept a journal. After the young missionary’s death, his father-in-law Jonathan Edwards edited the journal which he published as “The Life and Diary of David Brainerd.”
