The focus of the trip is developing cross-cultural relations with Navigator leaders and team members joining in evangelism and follow-up on university campus sites in Namibia and Botswana.
The team will come alongside in-country co-laborers for learning sessions in Navigator Basics. The goal is to establish and expand the campus ministry network and build relations with nationals of both countries.
A promise we are claiming for these ministries is Isaiah 54:3 “So you will spread abroad to the right and to the left, and your descendants will possess nations…”
