Seventh-Day Adventist Contributions to East Africa, 1903-1983


Baldur Pfeiffer

The Seventh-day Adventist Church initiated its mission activities in East Africa in 1903. Sending missionaries mainly from Germany, England, and Scandinavia, European Adventists began a long and rich mission tradition in the region. Not only in religion but also in the fields of education, health, literacy, medicine, and social affairs important contributions have been made. The subject presented gives some interesting insights into modern missiology.
