The country of Namibia, covered by the desert, presents a serious challenge to the church. Many of the 2 million inhabitants live in poverty. Nearly 25% of adults and youth are infected with AIDS. Namibia needs the Lord.
Although 80% of the population considers themselves Christian, a much smaller percentage actually has a personal relationship with Christ. There are indications that many are turning away from the scripture and are no longer open to the Gospel. While this may make Namibia a more difficult field, it also makes it a needy field! Who will cross this border for the sake of the Gospel?
