#ShortNews: African Christians are converting Chinese workers in Africa

African Christians, especially evangelicals, are converting Chinese workers in Africa, this according to Christopher Rhodes, a lecturer at Boston University’s College of General Studies, in an article dated 13 February published in Unherd.

“Many local African churches have reached out to Chinese workers, including incorporating Mandarin into services,” Rhodes writes. “A number of Chinese, in turn, have welcomed the sense of community and belonging that these Christian churches offer”. “Many of these Chinese workers are returning home, and they’re bringing their newfound religion with them. Visitors to the coastal province of Fujian, for example, now hear South African accented English and see houses adorned with crosses.”
