[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2020, using SA History Online: Reverend George Champion was born in the United States in 1810. I 1834 was appointed to undertake missionary work in South Africa. On the 20th of December 1835, he went to Mgungundhlovu to obtain King Dingane's permission to work among his subjects. In August 1936, Dingane allowed Champion and Grout to open a mission station, on a site chosen by Dingane himself, on the Umsunduzi River. The station was subsequently named “Nginani” (I am with thee). Following the destruction of the mission station at Nginani, Champion returned to the United States in 1839. He died in 1841.]
