On November 25, 1800, Krishna Pal, a thirty-six year old Indian carpenter, had dislocated his arm, and Dr. John Thomas, the first missionary to India from the Baptist Missionary Society, set Krishna Pal's arm, and, along with Joshua Marshman, spoke to him about the Christian faith. Later, Krishna Pal confessed his Christian faith, and William Carey baptized him in the Ganges River on Sunday, December 28, 1800; Krishna Pal preached the Christian gospel for more than twenty years, authored several Christian hymns, and died in 1822.
