English Summary:

Hans Christian Knudsen - the first Norwegian missionary to Africa.

Hans Christian Knudsen was educated as a missionary in Germany. But he had a dream - to slart a mission school and a mission society in his own country. In 1842 the Norwegian Mission Society was founded, partly as a cause of Knudsens eagerness. At that time he was a missionary in South Africa, sent by a German Mission Society. He worked with language and education at the mission field. His teaching methods could be very practical, but he was a strict master. According to Knudsen a missionary's task is to preach the Gospel for all people without showing disrespect for their ways of living.
