Holy Cross, like most schools in the Eastern Cape, had a one-week break at the start of October. During our break, Stephen and I visited YASCer Jared Grant in Maseru, Lesotho. You might remember him from “Itipini-Update”, where he showed considerable flexibility following Itipini’s collapse. Jared now serves the Anglican Diocese of Lesotho, headquartered in Maseru, where he and the fellow church staff graciously hosted us for a few nights.
We shared stories of YASC life, learned Lesotho culture, and enjoyed mountain-side views.

|Our drive around Roma. Yep -it was steep.|
The Diocesan Headquarters contained the Cathedral, the Bishop’s house, and guest lodging -where we stayed. These grounds have been home to all the past Lesotho Bishops, including Desmond Tutu.
We enjoyed each other’s company, and hope for future YASC meet-ups throughout the year. Plans are already in the works for a reunion at the Monastery!
Thanks for following, and look for part 2 soon (God willing)
