“In a previous newsletter I mentioned Lefa, the brother of Malifutsane (the shepherd whom I’d been working closely with and whose family I stayed with for the winter) and my hopes to disciple and work closely with him. About two weeks after sending the newsletter his family started preparation to host an initiation school for him and his friends! An initiation school is a secretive six-month event which initiates boys into Besotho manhood… This has meant that unfortunately, since then and for six months from that point onwards, I have been and will be unable to have any contact with Lefa. This has come as a huge disappointment but I trust that God is in control and am praying that even during this time Lefa would read the Sesotho Bible I’d given him just before.”
