Johannes Rebmann was a 19th-century German Christian, deeply influenced by the Movement of Württemberg Pietism. He was trained to be a missionary in Basel, Switzerland, and he joined the English Church Missionary Society (CMS) which sent him to the Muslim-ruled and slavery-ridden Mombasa area of present-day Kenya. There he stayed for 29 years before returning home to Gerlingen near Stuttgart, blind and sick, soon to die. As a witness of Christ and an expert in languages he paved the way for Christianity to deploy in East and Central Africa. One of his outstanding lexicographical achievements is the first ever Dictionary of the main language of Nyasaland, now Malawi, a country situated at a distance of more than 2000 km of which he scarcely knew the location. He compiled his collection of vocabulary of Chichewa with the help of a slave, Salimini, who like many others was cruelly captured West of Lake Malawi, and through the Swahili-Arab slave market of Zanzibar was sold to a slave-owner in Mombasa. Much in Rebmann's biography is a paradigm of experiences of today's transcultural workers in Africa.
