2020 LECSA Worship Service at Matsieng


King Letsie III, Queen ‘Masenate, and the Royal Family worshipping together.

A special service of worship was held on 26th January, 2020 at Matsieng, the home of Lesotho’s monarch, King Letsie III. This beloved annual event is an opportunity for LECSA to lift up the King and his family, to pray for their welfare, strength, and peace as they lead the country. It is also an opportunity to pray for the prosperity of the Basotho people and to give thanks for all that God has given. The annual worship service is evidence of the long-standing bond between the Royal Family and LECSA, dating back to 1833 when King Moshoeshoe I welcomed the French missionaries to Lesotho. King Moshoeshoe I gave the missionaries land at Morija to start a mission.  The church that they started there eventually became known as LECSA.
