So I came across the question of Christianity by countries/continents. Africa has a very sizable amount of the worlds christian population in it. Asia... not so much.
Christianity by country
Latin America and the Caribbean 531,280,000
Africa 516,470,000 
North America 266,630,000
Middle East-North Africa 12,000–16,000 
Fun Fact. There are more Christians than Muslims in Africa.

If I recall my history correctly, there were some of the Mongol tribes who were Nestorian Christian during the times of the Khans. When they conquered China, the Church of the East was reintroduced to during the Yuan dynasty. And under Mongkhe Khan the primary religious influence was Christian.
And there are legends about a figure named Prester John (possibly Toghrul) who came out of the East (Mongolia) during the Crusades to become a leader.

That was an odd read. Religion has always been political-violent, greedy, cruel. It's used to control the masses through fear.
Christianity has a sour past and present. Missionaries are especially concerning.
If first world countries really cared about third world countries, we would help them directly-not through our corrupt government or the dirty UN or any religious cult. Think Doctors Without Borders.

I'm not good at splicing quotes,
But did you say The Crusades "brought a lot of Christians together." ?!
Yes, some what during that time. You have Mongol invasion and Islam invasion.

Just read the title and posted.. Africa has a massive Christian population.
Before the UN you had Monarchs competing for power. So are you saying the Zulus and Egyptians were Christians before?
