The Tswana were the first Bantu people in Africa to respond to the gospel; several tribes turned to God in the 19th Century through the London Missionary Society from England. Other missions followed. Today, the majority of Tswana are Christian in name. Sadly, there is widespread immorality, drunkenness and a breakdown of the traditional family structure, including a high proportion of illegitimate children. Pray for a reversal of the moral decline and for renewal among the Tswana.
