Several Activities (H) 6 - Do you know these people?

Several students from Namibia are studying at the University of Nairobi. 82,1% of the inhabitants of Namibia are Christians (51,2% are Lutherans).
They are coming to our service. We had a meeting with them on May 3rd, Saturday, and on Sunday May 4th they sang at the service in Oshiwambo, one of the many languages spoken in Namibia.
