Seen by some as 'always controversial' and by others as 'humble' and 'most caring', Neville Langford-Smith lived among African peoples in Tanganyika and Kenya for over four decades, sharing their friendship, joys and sorrows. His long missionary service began in 1932, when he set out for Tanganyika at 22 years of age, despite being considered unfit and continued until 1975, when he retired as Bishop of Nakuru in Kenya. First sent to Uha, an area midway between Lakes Victoria and Tanganyika in the extreme west of Tanganyika Territory, to set up mission stations and schools in strategic places, later he became a teacher, headmaster and teacher trainer. He was ordained priest in Sydney in 1937, and shortly after married fellow missionary and kindergarten teacher, Vera Dobson, in Hobart. Together they shared wholeheartedly in the development and encouragement of an indigenous church in Tanganyika and Kenya, experiencing the difficult war years, the challenges and blessings of the East African Revival, Mau Mau with the struggle for African Independence and the turbulent years of the birth and growth of Kenya as a nation.
