I'm on a missionary journey to become the best version of myself. – Kyle Shewfelt

A Christian missionary can be defined as "one who is to witness across cultures." Missionaries can be found in many countries around the world. Jesus instructed the apostles to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19–20). This verse is referred to by Christian missionaries as the Great Commission, and it inspires their missionary work.

David Livingstone (19 March 1813 – 1 May 1873) was a Scottish Congregationalist pioneer medical missionary with the London Missionary Society and an explorer in Africa. His meeting with H. M. Stanley on 10 November 1871 gave rise to the popular quotation: "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"
