Opposition Doesn't Slow Evangelistic Campaign's Success

Creative campaign on Tanzanian campus survives the university's cancellation of planned event.

The bad news came just days before the February 3, 2007, event: no posters, no group gatherings for prayer, no hall to use.

Disappointed by the university's decision, Life Ministry, Campus Crusade for Christ in Tanzania, staff members asked all 600 students who received the bright yellow t-shirts bearing the slogan "I Agree with Mpeli" to continue wearing them and to share their own testimonies.

Incredibly, one week later, after many students voiced their desire to hear personally from Mpeli, he was allowed to share his testimony at the campus chapel's weekly gathering. As a result, approximately 5,000 students were exposed to the gospel.
