Spiritual renewal

A large territory on the southwest coast, Namibia has the highest proportion of ‘Christians’ (90%) of any country in Africa. Unfortunately, liberal theology and indigenous cults have resulted in nominal commitment, much unholy living, and deep divisions within the Church. While some of the people groups, such as the Damara, Nama, Mbukushu and San are considered partially reached, the demographic most unreached by the message of Jesus' love and forgiveness is the emerging generation of young people. Pray for spiritual renewal within the Church, for the strategic ministries in schools and for the joint projects between mission agencies and local churches to help those affected by HIV/AIDS.
