Synopsis: A great-grandson of church founders James and Ellen White, the author takes the gospel to primitive and hostile natives high in the Livingstone Mountains of southwestern Tanzania. Hidden in a veritable Garden of Eden, a "kingdom" is ruled by one of Africa's last great chiefs who, with his hundred wives, dominates the lives of his people. They have no schools and have rejected Christianity, having literally "thrown out" missionaries of several faiths. Challenged by a government official who asks, "Can Adventists succeed where others have failed?" native associates of the author cautiously "spy out the land," making friends, first of villagers, then of the tyrannical chief. Just when efforts to establish a mission outpost seem successful, the project implodes when both chief and colonial administrators suddenly and mysteriously order it closed and out of the region! Birth of a Mission tells the story of how the author and his assistants worked to salvage the project and of how, surprisingly, the decree to abandon the new mission ultimately and providentially served to help turn a once pagan chiefdom into a stronghold of Adventism!
