On this week’s travellers’ Tales Leo Divine talks with the “lost boy” Bishop Zechariah Manyok Biar the Bishop of Wanglei in South Sudan.

His extraordinary story includes his time as a boy soldier, his killing of several men in combat and his eventual journey through South Africa and Texas to his installation as Bishop.

Much of his diocese now lies under water so he is a passionate supporter of the Church of England’s new emphasis on climate change.
