Herero of Namibia

Pray for the Herero of Namibia

The Herero, who number over 250,000, mostly reside within Namibia’s borders. Angola and Botswana are also home to some members of this people group. A history of European colonial oppression, including genocide, still impacts the Herero people and has kept them resistant to Christianity. They have retained a strong cultural base that keeps them proudly united as a people group. The “Holy Fire” still spiritually captures most of the Herero in that it connects the living to the dead through the ancestors. The Herero are a strong, proud people who have yet to understand how desperate they are for salvation and all that it offers today and throughout eternity.
