My friend Edwin B. Wallace went home to be with the Lord eight years ago. Since the 1940s he was ministering in churches and on radio, and working as a cartoonist and illustrator for Christian books, magazines, and tracts. It is my pleasure to share this one pager of his on missionary David Livingstone.
