A Living Man from Africa

This chapter focuses on the period after Tzatzoe left the Kat River in 1818. He spent the next few years at the Bethelsdorp and Theopolis mission stations where he worked as a carpenter and wheelwright, evangelizing as an itinerant preacher in the surrounding countryside during his free time. By 1822, Jan Tzatzoe was crossing, once again, from the colony into Xhosaland. This time, his companions were not London Missionary Society missionaries but three ministers associated with the 1820 British settlers. Tzatzoe lead the Reverend William Shaw, who has been ministering in the Wesleyan church in the small town of Salem, just south of Graham's Town, and dreaming of establishing a Wesleyan mission in Xhosaland. They were accompanied by two more Methodist 1820 settlers: Stephen Kay and the Reverend William Threlfall.
