We're going to take a look at each Christian missionary to Africa through their own blogs - words from their own mouths about what God is doing in the continent of Africa.
Africa has been the home of some of Christianity's earliest and strongest churches. Some of the greatest theologians and missionaries have themselves come from Africa.
Today, many churches still thrive in Africa. But in other places, the name of Christ is barely known. But each Christian missionary to Africa has her or his own story to tell about how Jesus is building His Church.
Where are these Christian missionaries in Africa? They're all
over! Angola, Cameroon, Kenya, Niger, Uganda, and Nigeria are all
popular locations for missionary bloggers. Let's look at a few of the
best blogs started by a Christian missionary to Africa:
Kids’ Doc in Jos
journals the life of Dr. Mike Blyth, pediatrician at Evangel Hospital
in Jos, Nigeria. Dr. Blyth has been blogging just about forever, and
always has fascinating stories to tell, and pictures to show. If this

You can find more about the Blyths by visiting thier website, From Nigeria: With Love... Meanwhile, check out their blog which also has a news feed at mikeblyth.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default.
Also a veteran blogger, Stephen Davies has been giving us tidbits of life with the semi-nomadic Fulani people. Voice in the Desert
is the name of his blog, always well written (as it should be - he's
also an author and freelance writer in his spare time). Blog entries go
back to mid-2001, which makes this blog ancient in the blogging world.
