When Joseph Shanahan chose to work in Nigeria in 1902 it was still the white man’s grave. Most of the missionaries who preceded him had died within a year or two of arrival.He took a mission with 2000 Christians – mostly ex-slaves. When he died there were 200,000 Christians. A Nigerian bishop once said of him ” He was our St. Patrick “.
