  • Namibia for a long time had the highest percentage of Christians for any country in Africa. German and Finnish Lutheran and then Anglican missionaries gave birth to large denominations.  The influence of liberal and then black theology eroded that spiritual heritage, and true discipleship and holy living are now in short supply and nominalism widespread.
  • Please pray for more dependence on the LORD.  The major denominational seminary in the country has been influenced by black and liberation theology to the spiritual impoverishment of lowering of moral standards for leaders and followers and reliance on occultism rather than on God.
  • Praise that in recent years the evangelical witness has been strengthened through new additional missionary thrusts.
  • Pray the LORD will raise up strong national leaders in all spheres of the ministry.
  • Praise that all the major languages have full Bibles.
  • Pray the Ministry of Education will allow the ministry to start prayer groups in the schools.
