Last night a man from my Church gave a presentation on a man called C.F. Andrews. (1871-1940) C. F. Andrews was a Anglican priest from England who worked closely and became extraordinarily good friends with Mahatma Gandhi.  Andrews was appalled by the racism and oppression in South Africa and India. He became involved in the Indian civil Rights struggle and the Indian Independence movement.  He played a prominent role in it’s success becoming highly respected by both the Indian and British. Also known as Christ’s Faithful Apostle, Andrews was named Deenabandu, meaning Friend of the Poor,  by Gandhi and his students at St. Stephen’s College.
