On Tuesday, Bryan decided to seen the volunteers to South Africa, taking the conservative approach to make sure we were safe. So, my three roommates and I are hanging out in South Africa until we get the okay to go back to Lesotho. Bryan and his family remain at Beautiful Gate.
Here is a post Bryan wrote on Tuesday which gives the background of the situation.
As of the time Bryan was writing this post, the police were not on duty and were told not to come to work for safety reasons. Today they are heading back to work. Last night was a calm night and hopefully with the police back to work, things will get back to normal. The Prime Minister also returned to Lesotho yesterday.
Pray for things to calm down and for tensions to seize. Pray King Letsie, Prime Minister Thabane, and all of the government will work together to resolve this issue for their country. Pray for the safety of the Geurinks and all of Beautiful Gate staff and children. Pray for the Basotho people and pray for the ex-pats living in Lesotho.
Thank you for your prayers.
