Katutura, population 120,000, was an official township for black Namibians since before the apartheid time, until 1989. It is now a suburb of the city of Windhoek.
Katutura can be considered as a "real African" suburb with street markets and much happening outside. The name means "Place where we do not want to live" in Otjiherero.
Continuing risk factors of this area are alcohol and drugs in the home, sickness, disabled children, extreme poverty with several people living on one income, over-crowded housing, unemployment, crime, illiteracy, and disease.

This is Anna Gawages (right) and Else (left), her Grade One helper, and their class. Recently Else’s home was burglarized. She lost clothes, shoes and electronics. I had just cleaned out half the clothes in my closet, she can take what she wants. It won’t replace what she lost but I know how I feel when we receive a gift, or donation from you. It makes a difference every time.

Back to Life
I live in a desert, the Kalahari Desert to be precise, which borders the Namib Desert on its Southern side. Its hot and very dry, especially in Winter, which here in the Southern Hemisphere is June, July, and August. Winter is my favorite season as it rarely gets below freezing. Homes here don’t have central heating but we have a beautiful Kiva style corner fireplace in our bedroom that keeps us warm. It is also hunting season and hunting in Africa is a dream many desire but never attain but for me is a yearly pleasure. Spring is short, with a return of warm days turning hot quickly.
February 2017 Update
When Jesus’ faithful servant who received five talents brought back five more, the Lord was well pleased with him. He said, “ Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord." Nabot, a young teenager, who graduated from Community Hope three years ago is like that "faithful servant." Last week Nabot dropped by school to pay me a visit. He came to tell me of his progress and plans for the future. When I asked him my usual question, what do you aim to study in college, the answer was already on his lips. “ Mrs. Hunter, I want to be a doctor.” Nabot just entered eleventh grade. He has been the top student in his class for three years, and earned forty-one out of a possible 42 points on the national tenth grade final exam.
