Sacrifice the Family Cow?

As an online missionary with Global Media Outreach, I had the privilege of leading a young man from Lesotho to Jesus.

Lesotho? WHERE is Lesotho? He explained that it’s a small mountain kingdom in South Africa.

He asked for prayer for his family.  You see his mother feels his Christian beliefs are foolishness.  Instead, she believes in ancestor worship—which is common in that part of the world.

She wanted to sacrifice the family cow to the ancestors.  However, his father had forbid her to do this because they needed the cow to plow the field!  One day while his father was away, his mother killed the cow for the sacrifice. This caused HUGE problems in the home.

It has been several months and they have since purchased a new cow, yet the bitterness between his parents continues.

Please join me in praying for this family in Lesotho, and especially for their adult son who is trying to show them the love of Jesus.

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15).

No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE.

It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences.

    I really feel for this poor family. It is hard sometimes for us to understand the culture of another people, because it is too easy for us to judge them by our own beliefs. But I can only feel for that woman. She had to so strongly believe in what she was doing to go against her husband and her family at such a cost! Praying for God’s help for each one of them.
