This week FYF were learning about Mary Slessor. She was a Scottish missionary who went to Africa in 1876, in her late twenties. While she was out there she faced many challenges such as illness and disease, and she helped resolve issues in tribal communities. She learned the language so that she could communicate with the locals and she lives as one of the tribes people. She died in Africa in 1915.
