Langham’s main aim is to equip the next generation of Bible teachers. In Lesotho – a landlocked country in southern Africa – a teenager has been identified as “one to watch”, with huge potential for church leadership.
14-year-old Lipallo was one of a few young people who attended a Level 1 Langham Preaching training event in Maseru, Lesotho, for the first time in May.
He attended with his mum and a few others from his church. Joseph Morenammele, Langham Preaching’s coordinator for Lesotho, commented that Lipallo “surprised all the participants”.
He “amazed” everyone the way he commented on biblical concepts and his engagement during discussions. He “breathed scriptures into ordinary conversation”.
‘Madly in love with the Bible’
Joseph reported: “When he answers a question in a session he always accompanies it with a relevant verse from elsewhere. When he prays, he prays scripture very accurately. He is inquisitive like all boys. He reasons like an adult.”
Lipallo had some speech problems at a young age, but as he grew up his health conditions improved. Born to Christian parents, he fell “madly in love with the Bible” at a very young age. He gave his life to Christ at the age of six and took his conversion seriously. A while later, Lipallo became a Sunday School teacher at his local Assemblies of God church.
At school, Lipallo is not counted as one of the brightest pupils but he excels in the subject of Bible knowledge.
‘Let’s keep an eye on him’
Joseph says: “He is deep in understanding and applying scripture. He is far more mature than his age. Let us keep our eye on him and pray for him’.
Please join with us in praying for Lipallo, and the other teenagers who attended this Langham Preaching seminar in Lesotho. Let’s pray that God would use these young people for great things in the future!
