    ON THIS DAY in MISSIONARY HISTORY

    7 March 1804¬†‚Äď The British and Foreign Bible Society was formed to translate, publish and distribute and translate the Bible. It was the first of many Bible Societies that would be formed throughout the world. Key supporters of this young society included¬†William Wilberforce, Zachary Macaulay and Hannah More. Within 100 years, the British and Foreign Bible Society distributed over 200 Million pieces of literature. Among its many successful projects was helping to fund the printing of translations of the Bible completed by Missionaries William Carey, Robert Morrison, the first Protestant Missionary to China and Henry Martyn‚Äôs translation of the New Testament into Persian.
