Follow the Atlantic coast from the southern tip of the continent of Africa. The third country on your path is Angola, formerly a Portuguese colony, and a land devastated by war and political instability for about four decades. Peace has prevailed since 2002 and the nation is slowly rebuilding. Frederick Stanley Arnot, a family friend of David Livingstone, opened up the Gospel route through Angola in 1884. Since then many followers of Christ left their homelands to spread the Gospel in Angola over the last century. Many missionaries were forced to leave during the years of armed conflict. The Gospel work done over the last century stood the test of time and toil, and today there are many professing Christians and many assemblies in Angola.
