  • Great growth among Christians must not obscure the real needs.  The coast, Zanzibar and many of the peoples in the southern provinces are largely or almost entirely Muslim.  Increased conversions from among Muslims still leave the great majority unreached.
  • There is religious freedom, and equal rights and opportunities for both Muslims and Christians to worship and propagate their faiths.
  • There has been a peaceful change from the well-intentioned but disastrous socialist experiment to a freer, democratic society.
  • There is wide spread move of the Holy Spirit in many denominations resulting in vigorous outreach, bold faith and vision for advancement.
