Heroes of the Faith: William Carey

Heroes of the Faith this week is focusing on William Carey. 

William Carey was born in England in 1761. After becoming a Christian, Carey never lost the sense that God wanted him to take the gospel to the English colonies. His trade was as a maker and repairer of shoes but in the evening he taught himself Latin and theology. So strong was Careyโ€™s effect on missions and missionaries that the number of Christians in the following century grew at an enormous rate. Learn more about this most determined man.
