After graduating from the Princeton Theological Seminary in 1827, Peter joined the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM). A month later, he was ordained as a minister, and along with his wife Fanny, he sailed from Boston to the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii).

For the next fifteen years, he was stationed on the island of Kauai. The islanders were firm believers in spirits and depended on them for almost everything. They worshipped the dead Hawaiian warriors and called on to their spirits for help.

Hence to improve the social condition first, the couple immediately concentrated on providing education to the natives. Fanny opened up the island’s first school. Apart from formal education, she taught women how to sew and make hats, while her husband taught men how to use plows and wheeled vehicles. Then they moved to Molokai and Oahu. Wherever they went, they established schools, changed society with Christian love, and ultimately won many for Christ.

Both Gulick and his wife suffered from persistent ill-health. Despite the problems, they pressed on, and God made them a part of the great spiritual awakening at the Hawaii Islands during 1836-37. Although Peter and Fanny Gulick intended to live out their days in Honolulu, their ill health forced them in 1874 to join their son, who was already serving in Japan.

After having raised eight Godly children and serving the Lord faithfully, Peter went to be with the Lord in 1877. Like Joshua in the Bible, he lived up to the verse “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15).

Beloved, are you serving the Lord along with your household?
