Dr. Livingstone, I presume?

David Livingstone was a pioneer missionary to Africa. He took the gospel to the interior of Africa and was instrumental in ending slave trade. Marvin Olasky in World Magazine says this:

Livingstone also suffered personally: He was often apart from his wife until they could stand the separation no more, at which point she came inland with him and soon died of malaria. He mourned her deeply but wrote, "There is a Ruler above, and His Providence guides all things. He is our Friend, and has plenty of work for all His people to do. . . such a blessing and a privilege to be led into His work instead of into the service of the hard taskmasters -- the Devil and sin."
