Samuel Morris: The African Missionary to North America


In 1892, 18-year-old Prince Kaboo of Liberia's Kru tribe had been captured by the rival Grebos. When Kaboo's people could not pay his ransom, the young prince was readied for execution. But at the last minute, there was a blinding flash of light and a mysterious voice that said, 'Run Kaboo, run!' Escaping his enemies, Kaboo found his way to an American Missionary outpost where he became a Christian. After learning all he could from the American missionaries, Kaboo (now taking on the name Samuel Morris as a witness to his new life) was determined to set out for America where he could learn more about his Savior. He survived a harrowing over-sea journey and amazed the hard-bitten sailors with his tenacious faith. Arriving in New York, Morris continued to tell his astonishing story to all who would listen.
