Angola Opens to Missionary Work

The country of Angola will open for missionary work this month according to a missionary in the Mozambique Maputo Mission. Only missionaries from Mozambique will be sent first to proselyte. One of the last countries in the world to be predominately Christian without proselyting missionaries for the Church, Angola already has a strong membership in the capital city of Luanda. Over 700 members live in the country, many of whom were converted either in Europe or by other members in Angola. One of the reasons it has taken so long for Angola to open for missionary work was a very long civil war that did not end until recently. There are around 16 million people who live in the country.

I image the missionaries will only work in Luanda for the time being.
