JOHN GIBSON PATON ( 1824 – 1907 )

Have you ever heard of cannibals who chew, taste, and eat humans? You might have. The south-eastern part of Australia has a cluster of Islands called New Hebrides. They lived as cannibals. They didn’t knew anything about Civilization.

John Gibson Paton went to this place along with his young wife Mary Anne in 1858. Though the disturbances of the cannibals increased day by day he continued his mission without bothering about it.

In 1859 he lost his loving wife to a venomous fever. Their three weeks old child too was dead within a week. He had this heartbreaking experience of burying his wife and child with his own hands.

Trials and troubles simultaneously shattered Paton. Since the philosophy of missionary service is to stand fast and endure in the call, Paton was not perturbed by any of these.

Once, the Island suffered from scarcity of water. Paton dug wells and helped them. When the people saw water gushing from the bottom of the earth. They yelled “it is raining from under”. Paton led all those people of the Island who lived in ignorance to Jesus. He translated the New Testament in Aniwa and published in 1899.

Paton, further continued and built Orphanages, Schools , Churches and Bible Schools for those peoples, He slept on 28th January 1907.

If it was not Jesus and his fellowship I would have gone mad long ago. – John G. Paton
