Missions Quote: Alexander Mackay

“What is this you write— ‘Come home? Surely now, in our terrible dearth of workers, it is not the time for any one to desert his post. Send us only our first twenty men and I may be tempted to come to help you to find the second twenty.”

His twenty-fifth birthday came round, and on the 13th October, 1874, he jotted in his diary: “Twenty-five years old this day. ‘Bless the Lord, O my soul,’ for all His goodness. Man is immortal till his work is done. Use me in Thy service alone, blessed Saviour.”
