    What does Difela/Hymn mean to me, As much as we have different gifts there are people who can read the Bible and and be able to to translate it in a very meaningful way to transform a person’s life, and others can pray in way that thier prayer changes a person and there are people who can take a mere hymn, sing it and touches one’s heart, soo for me sefela goes a long a way it can be sung as a prayer, it can be sung as a motivator and can be sung as a connection to Our God, i for 1 sefela helped me through tough times and still helps me when i wanna reach out to people.
