Lockwood discusses production of food and reports that Angola has appealed to Europe and Canada to send food surpluses to Angola. He discusses the MPLA attitude toward religion and reports that fundamentalist churches founded by evangelical mission societies in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Australia are active in southern Angola and are suspected of a pro-UNITA, pro-South Africa political bias beneath their pietism. Lockwood discusses Rev. Ntoni-Nzinga of CAIE (the Angolan Council of Evangelical Churches), Bishop Emilio de Carvalho of the Methodist Church, Pastor Rodriguez of the Baptist Church, Minster of Planning Lopo do Nascimento, Jose Chipenda, the African Apostolic Church, and Jim Kirkwood of the United Church of Canada. Lockwood discusses mercenaries and landmines. He reports that the World Council of Churches estimated there were 600,000 displaced persons.
