Mary Slessor

The fearless missionary who brought peace to warring tribes.

Bringing peace to those who’ve known only war

The bold Scottish missionary Mary Slessor has gone deeper into the Nigerian jungle than any other, bringing with her medicine, education, and the life-changing message of the Gospel. When a young mother arrives on her doorstep in the dead of night with newborn twins, Mary receives a fresh call from God: go bring peace and Good News to the Okoyong people, where a powerful witch doctor is terrorizing the most vulnerable. In spite of strong warnings from Brits and Nigerians alike, Mary follows Christ even farther into the jungle. With the Okoyong people’s chief near death and the lives of more innocent people on the line, can Mary’s Savior save them all? Discover the story of this courageous peacemaker in the latest episode of the Torchlighters! Read more about Mary Slessor on the Torchlighters blog.
