Tears in The Night

In Western Africa, it was fourteen years before one convert was received into the church; in East Africa, ten; in New Zealand, nine years before one baptism; in Tahiti, it was sixteen years before the first harvest. William Carey labored seven years before the first Hindu convert was baptized  In Burma, Judson toiled for seven years before he had one, once writing England: “Beg the churches to have patience. If a ship were to carry me to any part of the world, I would not leave my field. Tell the brethren success is as certain as the promise of a faithful God can make it.”
