Excerpt from Under the Crescent, and Among the Kraals: A Study of Methodism in Africa An account of the activities of Methodism in Africa involves a recital of matters many and varied. The field includes all sorts of climates, from the frozen snows of the Atlas to the burning heat of Africa's heart. The trail of the Methodist missionary winds away over mountain, forest, desert, through the bush and the region of the tall grass. The folks he seeks to reach are of all complexions and two clearly defined forms of belief. Methodism in Africa as elsewhere flings her line afar. These chapters do not constitute a report or a summary of reports of Methodist work in Africa. Rather they are designed to assemble a setting for the activities of our missions there. While the operations of the church at large are outlined, particular emphasis is laid upon those of the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society among the women and children of that dark land. The incidents related are largely drawn from the actual experience of our own missionaries. Personal observations by the author in North Africa have been utilized in portraying this Mohammedan field. Authorities have been widely consulted and, where material is used, credit is given in the text. May a sympathetic reading of these pages mean to the women of Methodism a more ready response to the appeal of hands that beckon from Africa - those shackled by Islam or toil-hardened from the kraal.
