Namibia: Praise and Worship Night Comes to Namibia 11 Hours Ago

Camp David Namibia brings you a musical concert titled 'Hallelujah Namibia' on November 1 at the Hage Geingob stadium.

The first ever praise and worship music concert aims at bringing the country together to give all believers the opportunity to praise and worship.

According to Jacques van Vuuren, one of the event organisers, this will be a praise and worship event, open for all sectors of the public. "In the light of what's happening in our country, all the violence, murder and sexual immorality, we need to stand together and start praying for our country. Despite Namibia's devastating drought being broken earlier this year, we experience a great spiritual thirst throughout Namibia. We feel it in our hearts that an event of this calibre is the step in the right direction to open the tap and give people from around the country access to the living water Jesus Christ," says van Vuuren.

Van Vuuren believes that the event will create an opportunity for everyone, irrespective of their denomination, social standing, gender, political conviction, and race to worship the Lord through music. "Music has the ability to unite people in a radical way and release the power of the Holy Spirit to bring awareness, repentance, healing, rejoicing and many other forms of revelation. Through praise and worship, we can thank the Lord for every blessing. He has so graciously bestowed on our country and on us. All of us involved with Hallelujah Namibia carry the conviction in our hearts that we serve a wonderful and loving God," he says.

The one-day concert will feature local artists such as Sanet Lambrecht, Ponti Dikuua and the Maranatha Singers as well as South African gospel artists Elvis Blue, Nianell, Ivan Siegelaar, Rouchelle Liedemann, Lloyd Cele, LoyisoBala, Leza Liversage, Gerhard Steyn and Louis Brittz. The event will start with a children's show for primary school kids, which will be run by Nedine Blom from 10h00, whilst teenagers will be entertained from 13h00 by a live South African band. The evening concertwill start at 18h00.

Van Vuuren has already signed sponsorship contracts, noting that First National Bank (FNB) will be the main sponsor of this event. However, Van Vuuren welcomes any further donations or sponsorships for this event. "If you are willing to be a sponsor your name will occur on advertisements published nationwide, even if you are willing to sponsor a billboard you will be made a partner and that billboard will carry your name being visible 3 months before the show," says van Vuuren.
