(Tanzania)–Next, Tanzania has been asked to investigate accusation that human rights violations occurred during clashes with election protesters in January. Despite the eruption of violence, Global Advance’s David Shibley says there’s a better outlook for the country. “Tanzania, being in Eastern Africa, is ideally situated as a base of operation for the African church, to rise up not only to take the continent of Africa with the Gospel, but also to send missionaries as a 21rst century missionary force into the Islamic world.” Shibley adds that the pastors are looking for training because: “There is openness, there is freedom and tremendous receptivity. The Gospel has really taken hold of Tanzania in the last several years. There’s been wonderful growth, among evangelical churches. It’s a time for setting up these conference to really make a major inroad.” The Frontline Shepherd’s Conferences will be held in two cities in Tanzania this month.
