William Carey lived in England long, long ago, before the father of your father’s father was born. While still young, he asked some ministers of his church about taking the Gospel to people in other countries. One minister told him, “Young man, sit down. When God pleases to convert the heathen world, He will do it without your help or mine.” William knew that was wrong. He was convinced that Christians must take God’s Word to every nation. Years later he said, “Expect great things from God; attempt great things for God”. And he did!
