To make matters worse Lemayan falls sick but no one realises just how sick. Lemayan only knows the traditional Maasai world... but now he has to live in a different world. What will that different world offer him? Will he be happy? Will anything be as good as looking after animals? When Lemayan finds out about a Good Shepherd who cares for his sheep he begins another journey of discovery... a journey to yet another world ... a world where the Jesus is King... and where all tribes and peoples are welcome.
