With 98 percent of the population being Basothos and 80 % of whom are Christian, Lesotho doesn't have the racial and ethnic conflicts that draw media attention. A forgotten nation of truly wonderful people.
I'm having a really hard time writing this post, there are literally tears running down my cheeks. Please click on the link below the map and see if you could possibly help these wonderful Christians. It would soothe my heart to know that I've managed to help in some small way.
Enough about the sad stuff. Let me find some really good things to say about this amazing Monarchy.
Lesotho is a land locked mountain kingdom, and I mean high up in the mountains with summer temperatures reaching 30 degrees in the lowlands and winter temperatures

The country used to export clothing to America, but because of the economic downturn, these exports have dropped off significantly resulting in huge job losses.

Ok, apart for the appeals for help, I think this is an African Country well worthy of a blog post. My Africa, my people, my hat I lift to you. May God bless the people of Lesotho and bring them what they most need, healing and prosperity.
