-“Balokole”: The Effects of an East African Revival Still Going After 80 Years

In J. Lee Grady’s latest column (Link NLA) he writes about an East Africa Revival that started in September 1929. The Christians in that area call it ‘Balokole’ and the effects of the revival are still evident and active after all these years in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Burundi in particular.

Grady shares a quote in the article from Michael Harper who writes of the revival:

“It’s effects have been more lasting than almost any other revival in history, so that today there is hardly a single Protestant leader in East Africa who has not been touched by it in some way.”

Later Grady writes that he is hoping for something similar to come to America. We will explore that in the next post.
