David Livingstone went to darkest Africa as a lone missionary. After some time his missions committee wrote to him saying, “Some people would like to join you. What’s the easiest road to get where you are?” He replied, “If they’re looking for the easiest road, tell them to stay in England. I want people who will come, even if there’s no road at all!” Sometimes the pathway of the Christian life appears to change from a smooth-surfaced road to a stony track or peter out altogether.
