He noted that the biggestprob- lem he encountered was winning the confidence of the natives. "Naturally they were suspicious of vihite men," he said. "The first few months of my ministry was more social than religious." He recalled that In the early years the son of one of the witch doctors was converted to Christianity and was truly a pioneer in the Nigerian missionary field. "Through him we were able to reach many of the tribes," the minister explained. Travel during those early years was extremely difficult and time consuming. "We traveled along the rivers by canoe and often it would take us months to reach our destination," he said. Y-f *·· ·«tN !·%£·;?':- !W * i*« say REV.

The Nigerian mission was started by a medical missionary in 1913. He and his wife set out for the African country but before they reached their destination she died of a tropical disease. Nine years later when Engskov came there were 22 missionaries and only one church with membership totaling a meager 15. "Today the statistics liave greatly changed.

In 1953 Rev. Engskov returned to Denmark to serve as the General Secretary for Mission Work, a position he held until recently. "Now I am on pension," he said, "and I am free to travel."

"The biggest heartbreak of my life was not being able to have my children with me," he lamented. "They had to stay in Denmark because of the lack of educational facilities and tropical diseases in the mission field." He recalled that there was a period during the war when the family lost contact for a number of years. "Now that I am back in Denmark I am .enjoying my family enough for all those years we were apart," he said, "That is a great reward!"
