Nevertheless, despite the noteworthy statistics, Islams spread pales in significance when compared to the numbers leaving the religion for Christianity. The issue was first raised in 2003 by Qatars news channel Al-Jazeera, which aired an interview with Sheikh Ahmad Al Katani, the president of The Companions Lighthouse for the Science of Islamic Law, a Muslim preacher-training center in Libya.

Though his number may be exaggerated, it is consistent with the general trend. A study published in 2010 by the Pew Forum established that Christians outnumber Muslims by 2 to 1, with the number of adherents to Christianity in sub-Saharan Africa growing from seven million in 1900 to 470 million today.

actually, there aren't that many "westerners" preaching any more. Most churches are run by local pastors.
