“They did not deal kindly with him,” sighed Mampe, our Program Director, as she explained Selo’s situation.

Selo is a kind and determined young man who loves to read and preach God’s Word. He was born in Lesotho but moved to South Africa as an infant with his mother, where she later abandoned him.
