Title: Namibia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Charismatic fellowships – both independent and within many denominations, including the mainline groups – bring new life and fervour. New life in the churches has come recently through Reformed, Baptist and Pentecostal groups as well as through new mission activity by SIM/AIM, YWAM, particularly to under-reached areas and peoples. Several strategic groups formed to see Namibia transformed for Christ, the Evangelical Fellowship most notable among these. Pray for all to hear the gospel once again and many to turn back to Christ, and pray for unity and cooperation among all groups seeking to uplift Christ in this nation.
