Count Zinzendorf: First Fruit
Count Nicolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf did not follow the course dictated by his noble birth. Instead, he decided to follow God's call, even if that meant being banned from his native Saxony. Once destined for the royal court, the count instead became a spiritual father to many.
Count Zinzendorf opened his estate to persecuted Moravian Christians, and under his leadership a vibrant community developed, which in turn launched the modern missionary movement. Starting at Herrnhut and traveling as far as Africa, America, and Russia, believers from the Moravian Church planted seeds that continue to bear fruit today.
