South Africa

South Africa is the southern-most country on the Continent of Africa. It boasts a thriving population of over 55 million people and maintains a second-world standing. 

While the country is predominately Christian, the church struggles to thrive due to attacks from the cult and the government. It is not uncommon to hear of attacks on churches and pastors in South Africa, and the social work that the churches do among the people is often weighed down by governmental rules that are intentionally set against the Christian church. This is largely due to the past and current presidents being involved with ancestral religions which, traditionally, hate Christianity. 

Though South Africa is not the safest place to minister, the move of God has thrived among the people and they continue to spread the Gospel and give freedom to those who are looking for a loving Savior.
