Who knows, Byzantine Serb?
Our 20 church communion is not organized like one big corporation like the 22 church Vatican communion is. There is no centralized reporting. We don't even know, day to day, how many bishops we have! The number of converts probably isn't great if one defines convert as someone coming from another Christian tradition, but larger in number if one considers converts as coming from non-Christaian areas. The Church is growing quickly in parts of Africa. Africa is actually like a breath of fresh air to some of us Eastern Orthodox - it is not disapora as the Americas seems to have been re-classified. It is all under the See of our Pope of Alexandria, so a lot of imported problems we have in the USA aren't evident in Africa.
Best I can do for an answer.

Metr. Cyprian's synod has a fairly large presence in Africa and they are NOT under the Orthodox Patriarch of Alexandria.  Also I think (but am not positive) there is a ROCOR presence in Africa.

The areas where the large groups of people converting, like Kenya, are under the Church of Alexandria. I believe the OCMC (Orthodox Christian Mission Center) works exculsivley with the Pat of Alexandria in helping them setup and work with local churches in Africa.
