Sharing God’s Heart with Namibia

by Jon Essen, Staff Writer

Flying into the beautiful African nation of Namibia, my heart was expectant that God had great things in store for us in the days ahead. 

Namibia is located on the Southwest part of Africa, and is one of the least densely populated countries in the world, with a population of a little over two million people. 

Through the generous support of the friends and partners of Joyce Meyer Ministries, the ministry put on a two-day Festival of Life event to unite the churches and Christians of Namibia, while sharing the Gospel with those who had never heard it before. 

Worship was led each evening by Hillsong South Africa, and it was incredible to watch the people enjoy God’s presence during the event. 

I met a woman, who shared that she had been praying for 10 years that God would send Joyce Meyer to the nation of Namibia, in order to unite and bring a heart of revival to the Christians there. 

Joyce was absolutely in her element, and passionately shared with the people that God didn’t want them to live in complacency, and that His heart for them was to change their thinking by letting go of past pains and disappointments, and to take hold of a whole new way of living. 

There was a special time of prayer where Joyce felt led to bring out and hold up the nation’s flag, and prayed for God to reveal His heart of love to the people of Namibia. 

As I prepared on the last night to leave the outdoor stadium where the event was held, I realized something: 

I’m not the only one who has been expecting God to do great things in the nation of Namibia…and there’s so much more in store for this country.
