Southern Africa

Southern Africa faces many challenges as it copes with the highest HIV prevalence in the world. But HIV/AIDS is merely a symptom of the underlying problems that fuel the pandemic. In this context, the church needs leaders who will take advantage of the unparalleled opportunity to bring Christ's message of eternal hope to communities and individuals. TEAM missionaries in Swaziland and South Africa are developing leaders for churches, children's and youth ministries, and the prevention of HIV/AIDS.

Ah, but your land is beautiful..."

Southern Africa is a region of contrasts – rural thatched huts and skyscraping financial districts, subsistence farms and agricultural corporations, diamond exports and beaded handcrafts. The beauty of this area belies the poverty of hope that characterizes many. HIV/AIDS statistics surpass any other region in the world. Violent crimes, alcoholism, and broken families are all too common. Alan Paton underscores the contrast between the rich potential of this region and the ugly reality of social evil that plagues it when one of his characters cries, “Ah, but your land is beautiful…” The gospel has been preached in southern Africa for over 100 years, and 75-85% of the people call themselves Christians. Yet the incongruence between the label and life is painful, and many have never understood the transforming truth of the gospel.
