A BRIEF SYNOPSIS ON WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A LESAN.
Who we are, where we came from, what we are about and where we are going. Our vision and our mission. A journey began years ago. It has been a long journey one full of god’s blessing and protection. It is one that started as a miraculous package created by god, a girl child, an assurance of victory via christian education and the blossoming of a girl child into a woman. A journey that continues as the woman becomes a member of an elite group of christian women – lesa usa inc.
