It is a wonderful thing when “ the chickens come home to roost “ !
Over a number of years we have now had our young people leaving Windhoek and their home church to go to South Africa to pursue their tertiary education there .
However , all of a sudden we have seen a good number return , and it gives me a real sense of satisfaction to see them return to their ‘perch’ - forgive me … I meant to say … their church!

These, together with a good group of young adults in our midst have joined to become a blossoming Young Adults Fellowship at Eastside Baptist Church , meeting on Tuesday evenings for Bible Study , Prayer and Fellowship. There are about 25 young adults in this group. We currently meet at our church manse , which provides a homely environment for us. Desiree Hutchins and Sheldon Husselman
(engaged to be married in August this year) have divided the young adults into " task groups " who are responsible for hosting our meetings and to make sure that our stomachs are filled with good things after each meeting.
Ministry to Young Adults is vital , since this age group is in the process of positioning themselves in life with respect to career , marriage , family and involvement in the church . All these important aspects reside under the Lordship of Christ , and with His help we long to see these young people bear much fruit for the glory of God .
My prayer is that they would become catalysts for God’s transforming grace in our Namibian society , which is so plagued with godless values and empty living.
May they not waste their lives. On the contrary , may they by God’s grace stir up our nation through a new Reformation.
