Lesotho

Lesotho

Landlocked inside South Africa, the tiny nation of Lesotho has the 2nd highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world—right under its neighbor, Swaziland.

Yet Lesotho is 90% Christian, and has one of the highest literacy rates in Africa.

Despite the availability of education, access to quality healthcare, travel, and educational resources is limited. About 40% of the population lives below the poverty line, and children are often forced to work instead of going to school.

Will you share the difference between cultural Christianity and a life changing relationship with Jesus in Lesotho?
