Wilfred Grenfell was a British physician who established a medical mission in Newfoundland at the close of the nineteenth century. Inspired by the faithful service of his mother to her family—which Grenfell viewed as a practical manifestation of the love of Christ—Grenfell dedicated his life to medicine and the practical service of others. His work began small, but it eventually blossomed into the International Grenfell Association, which provided not only medical care but also food, education, and other forms of social and economic assistance in Newfoundland. In 1910, Grenfell published What the Bible Means to Me, an account of his faith and calling to the medical profession.
