Register of London Missionary Society Missionaries 1796-1923

Register of London Missionary Society MissionariesThe Register of London Missionary Society Missionaries is one of the most useful books I have yet come across for those interested in missionary biography. The register of 170 pages provides a synopsis of the lives of hundreds of LMS missionaries. The Appendices are no less helpful, one giving an alphabetical listing of the maiden names of missionaries wives.

The register was compiled by Dr. James Sibree, the noted missionary-architect who served in Madagascar. The previous owner has annoted some of the entries and corrected some of the dates. I have left these notes in case they are helpful to readers. This title, which I purchased online, is in the public domain.

Preface

It is my pleasant task to write a brief preface to this new and revised Register of L.M.S Missionaries. The Register has not been brought up to date since the time when the Society was celebrating its centenary. During the twenty-seven years between that memorable time and the present there have been many. changes. Some records of service have been completed, and many names appear upon this Register for the first time. The task of carrying the Register forward to the present hour ha~ been one of immense toil. It was undertaken by Dr. Sibree, who had retired from his long and honourable service in Madagascar, but was ready then, as at all times, to devote his many gifts to the service of the Society. To the compiling of the Register he has brought the s1me untiring diligence and scholarly accuracy which have marked all his work. To him the Society owes a great debt. [Continue reading]

Fifty Years in Madagascar by James Sibree

James Sibree [1836-1929], Fifty Years in MadagascarJames Sibree [1836-1929] began his missionary work with the London Missionary Society in Madagascar in 1863 as an architect. He later overtook theological training before returning to the country. Apart from a short time in south India, he served there until 1915. He wrote 16 books in English, including this one (his autobiography) on a wide range of subjects, many of which are still be reprinted even today. I plan to make available as many of these as possible.

My thanks to the Cambridge Centre of Christianity Worldwide for providing a copy of this book for digitisation. This title is in the public domain.

Preface

This is not my first book about Madagascar, but none of the dozen or so, large and small, which I have already written, take up exactly the points which form the chief subjects of the following pages, nor do any of the books written by some of my brother missionaries.

I believe, therefore, that the facts here given will be considered interesting, and as throwing light, not only on Christian and Church life among the Malagasy people, but also as a slight contribution to a wider history of missionary effort as a whole during the past fifty or sixty years.

The year 1920 was the hundredth anniversary of the commencement of Christian work in the great African island; and its history during the past century is another proof that the Gospel is still “the power of God unto salvation” wherever it is faithfully proclaimed. [Continue reading]

Chapter 1: Natives and Native Ways

The South Sea Islanders, like many of their more civilized fellow-creatures, are very fond of feasting. They believe m p1es and puddings quite as much as. you do, and not only at Christmas time, but at all seasons of the year. Theirs, however, are much larger than yours. Fancy a pie ten or twelve feet round! And a roly-poly three hundred feet long, and about as thick as a man’s body! You could not eat many of those Christmas pies, or many slices of those puddings, I am sure! It would not be a very easy matter to make and cook such large pies and puddings in England, but the natives find no difficulty in making or eating them. To make the puddings, they simply dig a trench, fill it with wood, upon which they place stones. [Continue reading]

Preface

I have been asked to write a few words to com-mend this book to all who love Mission work. It has been prepared with infinite pains by my dear friend and fellow-worker, Archdeacon McMahon.

No present member of the Mission is better qualified than he is to write an account of our work; for, with one exception, he alone re-members those early days, so interesting and romantic, before the French occupation. Many readers will regret that the old days are gone for ever, and that many interesting customs and survivals of heathenism and the peculiarities of native rule have been swept away. “The old order changeth yielding place to new.”

The book, though necessarily brief, is comprehensive; and it will be found that full justice has been done to the noble work, which has been done, and which is being done for Christ, by other societies in this island. [Continue reading]

 

Thirty Years in Madagascar with the Rev T.T. Matthews

Thomas Trotter Matthews [1842-1928], Thirty Years in Madagascar Thomas Trotter Matthews [1842-1928] was an LMS missionary in Madagascar.

Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Matthews was influenced by the 1859 revival movement and volunteered to the London Missionary Society. He studied theology at the Congregational colleges in Manchester and Highgate and took some medical studies. He was appointed to Madagascar in 1870 as part of the reinforcement and development of the mission there following the accession of Rànavàlona II, the first Christian monarch, in 1868.

Preface

For the facts of the historical introduction I am mainly indebted to the writings of earlier writers and missionaries, and to unpublished native accounts of the earlier years of the mission and of the persecutions; for mine would have been almost impossible had it not been for the labours of those other workers in the same field, and for the native sources I have mentioned. Without such knowledge as this introduction gives no correct conception can be formed of Madagascar and the Malagasy, of the work done for and among them, the present condition and future prospects of the people, and of the future of Christian work in the island.

Introduction

It is sometimes a question how far an introduction helps the book it introduces. If the author is well known he needs no such formal entrance into the literary world; if he is as yet unfamiliar to a wide circle of readers, his book itself is his best recommendation.

Dickens used to say that it was an easy thing to ” come out into society, but a difficult thing to prevent going in again.” And so a book or an author that proves unworthy of the introduction to the public, cannot long float, notwithstanding the outside supports intended to give it buoyancy.

Foreword

This short record of a year’s missionary journey in Africa and Madagascar is written at the request of the Directors of the London Missionary Society, and is based upon a series of Journal Letters written to my family and friends while I have been on my travels. This fact must be my excuse for writing in the first person. This little book has been prepared in the midst of the pressure of Secretarial work.

My visit to South Africa was a Secretarial visit. In Central Africa and Madagascar I formed one of a Deputation from the London Missionary Society. My colleague in Central Africa was the Rev. W. S. Houghton of Birmingham, and in Madagascar the other members of the Deputation were Mr. Houghton and Mr. Talbot E. B. Wilson of Sheffield.

It is not my purpose to attempt to give any description of the three Mission Fields which it has been my privilege to visit during the journey. Details with regard to the countries and the peoples will be found in three Handbooks published by the Society.[Continue reading]

Foreword

This book has been compiled from articles contributed to World Dominion from time to time by my beloved and lamented friend William Kendall Gale. He and I had many talks together, and much correspondence, on missionary principles.

We of the World Dominion Movement are in touch with an ever-increasing number of missionaries in many parts of the world, who stand for missionary methods which we have advocated for many years, viz., widespread evangelism, with a view to the formation of indigenous churches which, from their inception, shall be self-governing, self-propagating and self-supporting, and which shall undertake the task of the continuous evangelization of their own neighbourhood. William Kendall Gale was one of the best advocates, by pen and in practice, of these methods. In him the London Missionary Society, with which I am proud to have been associated, has the honour of adding to its heroic roll one of the greatest missionaries of modern times.

His was truly an apostolic ministry. He founded over two hundred Christian churches in Madagascar. If every missionary could have the success which Kendall Gale achieved, the world’s mission fields would soon have enough indigenous churches to inaugurate the post-missionary era.
