G. Drew

(1835-1905). Pioneer colporteur and ship missionary in England. He was an Englishman, who, after 15 years as sailor and ship captain, heard the Seventh-day Adventist message and accepted it while in San Francisco Harbor. For seven years he stayed in California studying the Bible and spreading his new faith. In 1882 he returned to England with John Loughborough and a group of SDA workers and engaged in the sale of publications and in ship missionary work at Liverpool. One of his first contacts was with a Finnish sea captain, A. F. Lundqvist, who is credited with introducing SDA work into Finland.
