About The Mission
Charles Thomas Studd (C.T. as he is usually known) captained the English cricket team before he began his missionary career in Edwardian England he turned his back on a privileged life, to go and preach Christ in inland China.
After 21 years overseas, C.T. was back in England with such poor health that those who saw him described him as ‘a museum of diseases’. Nevertheless, one night he saw a meeting advertised with the words ‘Cannibals want missionaries’. Intrigued, he went in, and was challenged by the need of people in the heart of Africa who had never had the opportunity to hear about the Lord Jesus. With no organisation, no money and no support, not even initially from his wife, C.T. Studd sailed alone for Africa in 1910.
Upon arrival in central Africa, C.T. would press on to find those villages which had never heard of Jesus. Finally after seeing the needs deep in the Congo, he returned to England to launch the new mission. In the meantime however God had spoken to C.T. Studd as he journeyed into Africa’s interior:
“This journey is not for the heart of Africa only, but for the whole unevangelised world.” As a result, what began as the Heart of Africa Mission became, in time, Worldwide Evangelisation for Christ – now a global fellowship of around 1800 workers under the umbrella of WEC International.
