We honour God for the work that has been done in the Kunene region in cooperation and in support of Kunene for Christ. Gert and Jeanette Lubbe of Veritas went to train Uapeontjunda Tjambiru and his wife, Gerson, Tarere, teachers of Ondije Primary School, in Opuwo as Kunene for Christ facilitators for the Veritas course (4-5 Aug 2018).

Elouise Drotsche led a FRESH team to Opuwo to erect a security fence around Bede Njamba’s house. Marnus, Elouise, Schalk, Gerrit, Ruan, Dawie, Chantelle, Lorinda, Hester and myself were part of the team. The Cape outreach team ((Tableview/Bloubergstrand & Grootte Kerk) also gave money for this project (7-9 Sept 2018).

Gerson Kuvare and Ludwig Uakuramenua, as well as Gatty Tjivikua, reached out to the Hungua Primary School where they showed the Jesus film to 400 children. They donated 5 Herero & 6 English Bibles, 3 Living Balls as well as stationary. They also visited some Herero homes with prayer and God’s Word. (19-20 Sept 2018) Ernst Hewicke and Estelle Krone, teachers of the Outjo Primary School, organised a Scripture Union Camp on Pieter Krone’s farm, Arcadia. The Lord blessed this camp which were attended by 80 children. Build on Christ the Rock, was the theme of my messages for the camp (21-23 Sept 2018).

Please pray:
That God’s kingdom will come day by day in the Kunene region!

A visit with Veritas to Kaokoland March 2018

kvc kvc kvc

It is very dry! Up in the mountains of Okaanga temporary cattle posts were built for bony cattle & goats. OvaHimbas from Ondije, Okozarowe & Onjuva moved there due to pasture in the mountains. On the evenings of Monday & Tuesday, the 12th & the 13th of March, we showed the Jesus-film to more than 60 people.

Tuesday morning Jeanette began with the 1st Veritas Bible reading session with OvaHimba Christians. Tjise, Kauhonekua, Kazondundu, Kondendje and Namajehi attended faithfully.

Wednesday afternoon Jeanette facilitated the Veritas course with Mr Uapeontjunda Tjambiru and his wife, Tarere, from Ondije’s School. Thursday morning she finished off, but Gert and Jeanette will come again to do the whole Veritas course with them.

The Christian leaders of Omuravarava were waiting for us in the mountains. We went searching and up in the mountains at Onwaa we found headman Tjavara’s children, who would send them a message from us. God is good, it started to rain! That evening the Jesus-film was shown to 11 young people. Vetumbuavi and his wife Uanyanekua, Katika and Vekeura, all from Omuravarava came to our camp on Friday morning. They remembered the Veritas appointment. The morning and the evening they listened attentively to Jeanette. Until Friday evening they sat under a shelter while it rained. They had a hunger for God’s Word!

Saturday morning Erik gave a farewell message from 2 Timothy 3. Preach the word; be urgent in season, out of season;...

Please pray:That the seed of God’s Word will bear fruit a hundred fold among the OvaHimba believers.

Greetings in Christ
Erik & Hester van Zyl

We visited Horeb at Swartbooisdrift from 5 to 6 February 2018. Elouise Drotsche who works for FRESH Namibia and is also a board member of Kunene for Christ, went with us. In Opuwo we handed out clothes to Rev Jason Ngambue for distribution to people in need. We distributed Dhimba New Testaments & Megavoice MP3 solar power players loaded with the Audio Dhimba New Testament to Christian leaders. Bede will help us to distribute the Dhimba New Testaments. We delivered spectacles at the Otjimuhaka clinic for the Himba & Zemba people whose eyes were examined by optometrist’s end of last year at Swartbooisdrift. We took measurements of the structure at Horeb for FRESH Namibia, who wants to upgrade the place and build a home for Bede at Horeb as place of ministry.
