Game for the World in Namibia

March 2, 2013

Alan and I flew from Johannesburg to Windhoek, Namibia and met with Rudolph Rittman,  the Methodist Church of Southern Africa’s Namibian representative. We had never been to Namibia and were looking forward to meeting Rudolph, as well as Alan’s daughter, Tish Hanekom, a Church of England missionary in northern Namibia.

Namibia is west of South Africa and shares borders with it, Angola, Zambia and Botswana. Approximately half of  its population of 2.1 million people live below the international poverty line. Namibia has suffered heavily from the effects of HIV/AIDS, close to 17 per cent of children under the age of 18 are orphaned by at least one parent, mostly due to HIV. Tish and Rudolph have experienced the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS in their communities, with the loss of friends and colleagues.

Tish picked us up at the airport and drove us to meet Rudolph at the Central Methodist Church in  Windhoek. Though we didn’t have  much time, we were able to play Game for the World outside in the shade. Rudolph emailed me later to say that he gave a report on the game to his leaders meeting, where the Bishop was present. He planned to give a presentation on it to the quarterly meeting that weekend and to use it with the confirmation class, youth groups, society stewards, preachers and women’s groups.

We’re excited about the possibility of Game for the World making a difference in the lives of Namibians!
