History

Sierra Leone was founded as a home for freed slaves in 1797. It was the first West African country to be evangelised. The first Protestant Church was started among freed slaves in Freetown, yet after over 200 years of effort, under 12% of the country claims to be Christian. (From 'Operation World')

The country emerged from a decade of civil war in 2002 with the help of Britain and a large United Nations peace keeping mission. It now faces the huge challenge of reconstruction.
