Prayer Request and Update
Conflict continues in Lesotho. Please keep our sisters and brothers in the Lesotho Evangelical Church of Southern Africa (LECSA) and the Basotho people in your prayers. Prayer Requests and Update:
The “mountain kingdom” of Lesotho, completely surrounded by South Africa, is about half the size it was in the early 19th century, before South African settlers took over much of its fertile land. Today, water and hydroelectricity are among Lesotho’s leading exports. The extensive Highlands Water Project has enabled Lesotho to capture water and to supply water and electricity to South Africa’s industrial heartland around Johannesburg.
The PC(USA) has been involved in Lesotho through medical and other mission personnel and cooperative efforts with the Lesotho Evangelical Church. Through the Presbyterian Hunger Program the PC(USA) is accompanying Kopano ke Matla, the Lesotho Joining Hands network.

Having been educated at Morija in 70s by the like of Rev. Sentle Nthabane and having had a benefit of familiriasing onself with the ethos LECSA, it helped me to be what I am today.I have got nothingto say but praise that church which operated exceptionally well under unfavourable conditions to be where it is today. I personnally will not forget the immesurable support I got while in exile because of my attachment to LECSA and other presbyteran entities globally. I personnaly appeal to PRESBYTERIANS around the world to do their utmost in praying and supporting LECSA given the prevailing conditions currently. We say to the leadership of LECSA we will all always be praying for you.
