The Man Who Saved Wellington
The work of missionaries throughout the 1800s in Aotearoa, New Zealand involved much more than simply going to church and preaching the gospel on Sunday mornings. The dedicated missionaries were fully involved in the day-to-day activities of those they came to help. Their dedicated service was practical, dynamic and often involved high risk to themselves, yet we don’t hear much about them and most people don’t even know any of their names. In this episode, we’re going to discover the character and devotion of one of these amazing individuals – Octavius Hadfield.
