In Sesotho, the name of the month that corresponds with April is 'Mesa. It is derived from "ho besa" which means to roast. It is the month when the corn is ripe enough to roast and eat. Since God graciously gave us rain this summer, we have a nice crop of field corn in the clinic garden. Towards evening some nights we light a fire and start roasting corn for supper. It's yummy! We wish you could join us around the fire under the stars to talk for an hour or two while we roast and eat fresh corn!
