Dr. John Geddie was a Scots-Canadian missionary who was known as "the father of Presbyterian missions in the South Seas." In 1848 he pioneered missionary work in the New Hebrides islands, Aneityum (Anatom) and worked there for God for 24 years. On the tablet erected to his memory these words are inscribed:

"When he landed, in 1848, there were no Christians.

When he left, in 1872, there were no heathen."
