College Education Conclusion Bibliography Unlike the earlier works on the Work of the London Missionary Society (LMS), this book conspicuously fetches out the health care and educational activities of London Missionary Society in the existing Kanyakumari District of Tamilnadu. Finding the historical truth from its deeper level, the developmental programmes of the LMS missionaries towards all fragments of the society is worthily inscribed in this book. Creating possibilities for the segregated and the downtrodden of the time by the missionaries become the staple of the book, which challenges the mission of the present church.
