As an African, I will always be grateful for the role Ronald Reagan played in saving lives in Angola. In the 1980’s, I made multiple missionary trips into war-torn Angola.
As an African, I will always be grateful for the role Ronald Reagan played in saving lives in Angola. In the 1980’s, I made multiple missionary trips into war-torn Angola. At the time, there were over 50 000 Cuban troops in the country. The Communists had attacked and destroyed many churches. MiG-23’s and MI-23 Hind helicopter gun ships were terrorising villagers in Angola. I documented numerous of these atrocities, including the strafing of villages, schools and churches.
The ongoing wars in Angola and the Congo have led more than 220 000 refugees to flee from their homes to find sanctuary in Zambia.
When the Marxist MPLA forces launched a scorched earth offensive against the people of south eastern Angola, hundreds of villages were destroyed, thousands killed and tens of thousands fled.

Between August and September our Frontline Fellowship team had many wonderful ministry opportunities in southern and central Africa. Our Team continued with a program of Biblical Worldview Seminars in Zambia and Malawi, including a special program for Christian lawyers. We also had the privilege of ministering to the needs of Angolan refugees now inhabiting camps in Western Zambia.
