Pat Shingleton for Jan. 20, 2013

The mention of historical weather events can easily activate memories of those occasions: where we were and what we were doing when they occurred. Examples include Hurricanes Andrew and Katrina and even snow events and flooding. Scottish Missionary Robert Moffatt returned from Africa to try to recruit people to help him. Remembering a cold night, when only a few women and a boy were in attendance, Moffatt later wrote, “It’s hardly worth my while to give this talk.” He put his heart into his presentation and Moffatt inspired the young boy in attendance. The boy later became a doctor, a Protestant missionary martyr, scientific investigator, explorer and posthumous national hero. That man was Dr. David Livingstone.
