Mary Mitchel Slessor was a Scottish Presbyterian missionary sent to Nigeria for evangelism.
Slessor was a very bold and understanding lady which made her gain trust of the people of Efik in calabar, she stood steadfast and and firm is preaching and elucidating the people on christianity as she fought for the right of women.
She was famous for putting a stop to the killing of twins in calabar, the people of calabar saw the birth of twins as a curse. Natives considered that the father of one of the infants was devilish and the mother must have been guilty of a great sim.
Mary was magnanimous enough to adopt every child that was abandoned.
Mary Slessor was kept in a one story building where she housed most converts and adopted children in Odukpani, which is now currently known as cross River. The structure of the building seem beautiful and classic, unlike the mud houses that existed. Could she have been living a rich life as a missionary back then?
