Approximately 75% of Palapye residents live without power. They cook over the open fire and use candles and kerosene lamps to light their houses at night. They are too poor to afford electricity. The instillation itself costs over 300 pula (around 60 US dollars.) They are comfortable in their lifestyle and I have never heard a Motswana complain about their living conditions. Most of them live in darkness not only physically but also spiritually. They are comfortable in their spiritual atmosphere as well just following what their parents and grandparents believed by worshipping their ancestors. While talking to some ladies at church I asked them when they became a follower of Jesus; they told me that they were rather old when they believed but it was because they had never heard about Jesus before then and would of believed if someone had just took the time to tell them about Jesus.

That brakes my heart to think that so many people need to hear the gospel. I am so excited and can't wait to get to Africa and be used by God to tell them about Jesus.
