Henry Martyn served as a missionary to India and Persia (Iran) in the early 1800’s. In an amazing feat of discipline and genius, he translated the New Testament from Greek into Urdu and Persian (languages he learned during those five years). He also supervised its translation into Arabic. All this – before he died at age 31.

He once said…

The Spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions, and the nearer we get to Him, the more intensely missionary we must become.
