Philip Saunders ‘Inspired by Henry Martyn: Cambridgeshire Missionaries of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century.’

In this illustrated talk Dr Saunders of the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide described how the relatively short life of Henry Martyn influenced others to follow him into missionary work. Martyn worked in Bengal and Persia (Iran), and was followed by others, both men and women into India, and eventually into Africa, and still continue his work. The Henry Martyn Hall in Market Street was erected in his honour.
