March 19, 1813 – May 1, 1873
While I was educated at home, I was assigned to read a biography of the great Dr. David Livingstone. He was a missionary to Africa, but also an explorer, geographer, and a role model for the early abolitionist movement. He opened the door for medical practitioners and missionaries to enter Africa and help countless lives.
Today is his birthday, and we should celebrate all he did in his lifetime!
