    Thank God for the sacrificial pioneer white Christian missionaries! Global Christians received the life-saving Gospel message from them and follow their steps. The white Christian missionaries also brought the much-needed charity, medicine, and literacy into the entire world. The real gem-like heroes in the human world and the true history changers. Kings and the powerfuls and the brilliants are a mere background comparing to these missionary saints.
