The African people are not like the rest of the, "so called", civilised world, they take spirituality very seriously. God is not mocked here, he's feared and worshipped.
You must understand that in Africa things like witchcraft and divination are still practised. According to one source I've spoken to, about three children disappear each month here in Cape Town alone. Their body parts are used as muti (Medicine) by Sangomas (witchdoctors).I won't insult your sensibilities by showing images.
Ancestor worship is also a big thing but the hope that is offered by Jesus and his promise of care is taken very seriously. Africa is a poor continent, people here reach out to god with sincerity of heart, which is a good thing.
Christianity actually came to Africa via Egypt before the destruction of Jerusalem in 70ad. Despite persecution and false teachings, the church was established in north Africa long before it reached Europe, in fact north Africans were the first to embrace Christianity.

Yes Jesus is in Africa, no doubt about it. Hope and freedom are qualities inherent in Christianity that the African people do Appreciate.
There is still much to be done here and those who come to help will have their work cut out for them, but they will not be alone, the International Pentecost Holiness Church (IPHC) that owns the farm where I live is working to eradicate some of the more abhorrent Africa cultural practices and is doing a fine job.
