African Harvest – The Captivating Story of Michael Cassidy and African Enterprise by Anne Coomes
Foreword by Billy Graham
When Michael Cassidy started African Enterprise in 1962, urban Africa was growing fast and chaotically. The battle was on for its soul: everywhere ideologies and political self-interests clashed, while people with selfish ambitions vied for power. Religiously, Africa as also a free-for-all. Centuries-old traditional witchcraft and all manner of occult practices were endemic. On top of this, Islam was on the march. Christianity had taken root across the continent. But churches and mission stations were often isolated and poorly resourced. This extraordinary chronicle of a man and the organization he founded is an account of how the Holy Spirit has been working across Africa during the first 40 years or so after African nations emerged from their colonial past.
