Lesotho shepherds colouring sheet

Most people in Lesotho live in the valleys, but not the shepherds. They live and work high up in the mountains looking after animals. It’s a really lonely life as they are away from their families and spend a lot of time on their own. They are also out of reach of the local churches. Sometimes the shepherds are as young as six when they first go into the mountains and most of them have never been to school so can’t read or write. Most shepherds have never heard about Jesus, instead they worship their ancestors and look for answers about creation in the wrong places.

The shepherds write and sing songs on homemade instruments about their lives. Many Bible stories have also been recorded and made available to the Lesotho shepherds, which love to listen to. Download and colour in this picture and Bible verse.
