Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Africa - the Dark Continent - is showing few signs of emerging into the light. Plagued by political instability, poverty, illiteracy, inept and corrupt leaders, economic chaos, civil wars, and tribal rivalries, the nations of Black Africa, for the most part, are seemingly headed for economic and political oblivion. Symptomatic of Africa's morass of problems was the twelfth annual summit meeting of the Organization of African Unity - a classic misnomer - held in early August in Kampala, Uganda. Hosted by Uganda's unpredictable President Idi ("Big Daddy'') Amin Dada, the OAU confab was attended by an underwhelming 19 of a possible 46 OAU heads of state. Three nations - Tanzania, Zambia, and Botswana boycotted the gathering completely in protest of Amin's chairmanship of the meeting. Other heads of state sent lesser delegations because they feared possible overthrow should they themselves leave their capitals. Some who dared to attend- like President Mobutu of Zaire - brought along as many as 300 people in their entourage, including all those who might have started a coup back home.
