Evangelical witness is quite recent. In 1984, there were only about 20 born-again believers. Now, a growing evangelical movement in several denominations exists mostly within the New Life Church/Pentecostal framework, although Brethren and NTM churches also exist. Travel conditions are extremely harsh, and communities along the coasts isolated; those outside the larger settlements have very little chance to hear the gospel. Thank God for airstrips now built in several remote towns, opening these places for ministry.
