Thomas Baker 6 February —July was a Methodist missionary in Fiji , known as being the only missionary in that country to be killed and eaten, along with seven of his Fijian followers. The incident occurred in the Navosa Highlands of western Viti Levu in July , and the rock used to kill Baker is still displayed in the village of Nabutatau. The soles of his leather sandals, which were also cooked by the cannibal tribe, are in Fiji Museum in Suva. Records show that Baker was killed and eaten as a result of him touching a chief's head, which in Fijian culture, is considered to be very disrespectful. When Baker met a local chief of Navatusila, Baker presented a British comb as a gift and attempted to persuade him to convert to Christianity.
The Provo MTC is a little city of its own, considering the average of 2, missionaries who live there, and the nearly full-time staffers, as many as 1, part-time employees and some 1, volunteers who provide support services.
