A special Livingstone 200 Birthday lunch and presentation is planned for Livingstone House, Tuesday, 19 March. Livingstone House has a collection of all of David Livingstone's published works, many of his pictures, maps, photographs and artefacts.
David Livingstone was born on the 19th March 1813 in a mill town called Blantyre, in Scotland. He was from a protestant family and they were believed to have descended from the highland Livingstone clan. His father Neil was a traveling tea sales man, and was also a very religious man who gave out Christian pamphlets on his travels.
His father influenced David’s life immensely and he became an avid reader of theology and missionary books, and although his father tried to force him not to read any science books David’s deep interest in nature and science soon led him to investigate the relationship between religion and science.
Frontline Fellowship is preparing an In the Footsteps of David Livingstone documentary film and The Life and Legacy of David Livingstone book in cooperation with Nordskog Publishing.
Frontline Fellowship Missionary teams will be conducting special Discipleship Training Seminars and Reformation Seminars in many of the areas where David Livingstone pioneered. David Livingstone was the first Evangelist to proclaim the Gospel in the much of Central Africa. He walked from coast to coast. From the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean Traversing Southern and Central Africa by foot.
It has been the privilege of our missionaries to follow in the footsteps of David Livingstone, witnessing the phenomenal growth of the Churches in those areas where he first ploughed up the hard, stony ground and planted the Gospel seed, with many tears, and on occasion, his own blood.
The sufferings and sacrifices of Dr. David Livingstone, and his perseverance in the face of overwhelming odds, is a most inspiring example of excellence.
The 200th anniversary of the birth of Dr. David Livingstone is a unique opportunity to inspire greater missionary vision, Evangelistic zeal, and enthusiasm for applying the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life. Dr. Peter Hammond is available to give special Life and Legacy of David Livingstone presentations to schools, colleges and congregations.
