My experience during Beat the Drum Zambia was life changing. I watched the movie for the first time and I was reminded that much more has to be done towards HIV/AIDS awareness.
It was heartbreaking to learn the myths behind HIV/AIDS. After training, I taught at Linda Secondary School where the pupils turned out in numbers. We taught about abstinence, purity and God’s way for our lies. I felt really honored to be part of a life changing program.
Reaching out to people in the Kingdom of Lesotho was amazing. A lot of people from Lesotho practice worshiping of ancestral spirits and a lot of them go to church but have no personal relationship with God. We partnered with LXP Lesotho, led by Godfrey and Elizabeth Mossabase. From their home/ ministry base, LXP runs most of their ministries. We were able to serve with a soccer ministry, and kids ministry, and we also held short services for three days in a week where they ministered to people from the village. I was greatly inspired to see how God is using this organization to bring change in that village. I learned that as Christians we are agents of change and in whichever environment we represent God and he is dependent upon us to teach his Word and make disciples.
