7.16 What are some great examples of missionaries preaching to native peoples?

Mission - #OnlineSaints

For over 2000 years now, people have responded generously to Jesus’ calling to spread the good news of the love of God to the ends of the earth. Many of them literally travelled to the furthest corners of the world to do so.

Take Katherine Drexel, who did so much to bring the gospel to native Americans: she gave up everything to be close to these people. Or look at Peter Chanel, who left the safety of France to be dropped on an island in Western Oceania: with great patience and dedication he started to teach and explain the gospel. Are you ready to do something similar?

These missionaries truly gave themselves for bringing the good news to people who had never heard of Jesus, risking hardships, rejection, and even their own lives for the gospel.
