Puritan missionaries came to America in the 17th century primarily to spread the Christian faith and establish a community based on their religious beliefs. Indentured servants, on the other hand, were primarily brought to America to work off their debts or to establish a new life. While the motivations behind their journeys were different, both groups played a significant role in the colonization of America.

Christian missionaries exist because of Jesus' command to 'preach the gospel to every creature.' (meaning people of course). Missionaries themselves love and know Jesus and wish to share the good news with others.

The Portuguese arrived in Ghana in 1471, although there are no records on the web for it, one may safely assume that the Portuguese brought priests with them, who would have been the first missionaries.
Converting people to Christianity.
It was more than that. In the North they did not establish any churches or attempt any "converts" this was because Fredrick Lugard would not allow them.
In areas where Islam dominated Christianity did not have much of an influence. Because Islam is more of a dominate religion.
However, one of the principle objectives were to attempt to remove the many and strong supersitions of Nigerians along with abolishing the many practices of Human sackrifices (sp). The Christians also wanted to impose Western morality on to the Nigerians in a false belief that their morality was superior to the Igbos, Yoruba or other Nations within the area of their control they named Nigeria. So Polygamous relationships needed controlling, the idea of the powerful market women who could earn more than their husband did not fit in with their Victorian view of a womans place in the home. Or the use of Christian names because the lazy missionaries could not pronounce the African names, in class.
The introduction of the Christian Missionary School CMS was also used to introduce Western Education to prepare Nigerians to modern ways of thinking and economy. Both Yoruba and Igbo nations embraced this as a way to advance themselves. In the run up independence the Northern States of Nigerian mainly Hausa and Fulani Muslim states found themselves at a disadvantage so the British fixed the 1st elections to ensure that the Islamic North had control over the rest of the Federation.
Initially the British run Nigeria as two separate states Northern = Islamic and Southern. Until they were merged in 1914. Ironically the British liked the Islamic model of government as it made their work easier to Adminster such a large area with very few Colonial Adminstrators on the ground. Utilizing the Islamic model served the British purposes as it reached a broader mass than having to convert the hetrogenous southern states of various traditional beliefs.
Mexican people are not different from other humans. Most of them have the same spiritual needs you and me require:
The missionaries brought Christianity and basic education to the aborigines of remote Australia. To aid in their management of the aboriginal population, they encouraged them to move from their traditional lifestyles onto centralised missions. Here, they were provided such necessities as flour, sugar and tea, so that they did not need to leave the missions to hunt for food.
The centralised lifestyle soon brought the people into close contact with white Australians, bringing them occasional, low paid work and access to alcohol. The teaching of Christianity meant that the aborigines were encouraged to forget their traditional religions and cultures. They began to be forced to speak English at all times, thus losing their native languages and traditions.
Gradually, alcoholism, sexual diseases and domestic violence became part of the lifestyle of many aborigines in remote areas. With large numbers of children of mixed racial heritage, the governments and missions worked together in many cases, to remove these children and offer them what was thought to be a better lifestyle.
There were both positive and negative outcomes of the missionaries involvement in aboriginal communities, and not all the problems of modern aboriginal communities are solely the result of missionary intervention.

Of all various viewpoints of the teenagers in today's church, one thing cannot be ignored. They are the future of any church. They are the future of the world. The youth plays the role of supporting the adult church members, teaching them (as young learns from old, so old learn from young), and assuming the responsibilities of the church when they are older.

Be smart have a good voice and don't be shy!
First off, stop looking for fame. Being a gospel singer isn't about reaching fame. Secondly, be honest about your intentions. Thirdly, get some sort of training in the feild of traditional gospel singing (if that's where you are wanting to head). Forth, sing with your heart and soul, its there that the gospel lives within. Fifth, write good songs! Sixth, WORK HARD!!!! Sing where ever you can even if its on the streets. Get your talent noticed! Work as hard as you can to get noticed as a gospel singer. Work backgroud if you have to to get somewhere first. Never give up on your singing! If someone tells you that you can't sing, work ever harder! You have to be your biggest fan to start with. If your not your biggest fan, you can't expect anyone else to be!
Surround yourself with Friends that love you and are honest with you. Because these are your biggest critics.
One of the biggest things that we as gospel singers need to remember is to have Integrity. If you don't know what this is, research it.
And always always remember to trust in God!
