William Carey, often hailed as the "father of modern missions," was an English missionary who made significant contributions in India during the 18th and 19th centuries. Born in 1761, Carey was a cobbler by trade. In 1793, he moved to India, where he translated the Bible into several languages, including Bengali, Sanskrit, and Assamese, among others. He also advocated for social reform, notably fighting against the practice of "sati," the burning of widows. Carey's unyielding dedication to his missionary work has inspired countless others to commit to international service and evangelism.
“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.” ― William Carey
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit... ― Matthew 28:19
