Reverend Brown leads the mission with a cool head, calmness, and patience. He does not try to foist his religion on the tribe but leads by living example.

When Brown becomes ill and must leave, he is replaced by the zealous Reverend Smith. He is the total opposite of Brown, loud, pushy and believes that he is "right" and the tribe is "wrong". He has no compunction about shoving his own religious views down their throats. Anyone bold enough to go against him is thought to be a devil-worshipper.
