Count Zinzendorf and Pottendorf, (May 26, 1700 -- May 9, 1760), German religious and social reformer and bishop of the Moravian Church, was born at Dresden. He was one of the most controversial figures of the 18th century. Ignoring boundaries of class, race, and gender, he started a prayer watch that lasted for a hundred years and led a new missionary movement the like of which the world has seldom seen.

A testimony to the Moravian missionaries was made by William Carey, who is considered “the father of modern missions” and was one of the first missionaries to India. After reading several issues of Periodical Accounts, Carey threw down some copies of this Moravian missionary journal (first published in 1790) in a meeting of Baptists and exclaimed, “See what these Moravians have done! Can't we Baptists at least attempt something in fealty to the same Lord?”
