At the end of October, in Morija, the Lesotho Evangelical Church in Southern Africa (LECSA) celebrated the 2nd annual Leeto la Thapelo (Journey of Prayer) event. This church-wide celebration was started to help bring the church closer together and strengthen the unity of the church. The two-day event was attended by church members in their thousands from all over Lesotho and parts of South Africa. As was the case last year, there were sessions for prayer when all in need were invited forward and prayed for by the pastors of the church.
This year the event highlighted specially-designed blankets, in a variety of colors, featuring the new logo of the church. Blankets can be purchased through presbytery offices or by contacting the church offices.
Following the Saturday morning opening service and afternoon fundraising celebration, the day concluded with an evening service of sermons, hymn-singing, another prayer session and communion, all of which continued into the early hours of Sunday morning.
The Sunday morning service was graced by the presence of members of Lesotho’s royal family. Her Majesty Queen ‘Masenate Mohato Seeiso spoke during the service and shared words of Scripture from Micah 6:8. Prince Seeiso Bereng Seeiso, brother to the king, led some of the singing during the offering.
