Evangelical Missionary Society for German East Africa

The Evangelical Missionary Society for German East Africa (German: Evangelische Missionsgesellschaft für Deutsch-Ostafrika), also known as 'Berlin III' or the Bethel Mission[1] was a Berlin-based Protestant mission initiated by Karl Peters in German East Africa with a uniert religious doctrine.[1] From its founding in 1886[2] until 1891 the mission was limited to the Indian Ocean coast; it was then led by Friedrich von Bodelschwingh, Senior of the Bethel Institution.[1]

In October 1905 the society created Mkoma Mbuli (The Storyteller), a Shambala monthly, which probably continued publication until 1914.[3]
