I have been blessed to be a team worker with a man of God. In 1976, my husband was called to be a shepherd in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Prior to that time, he was working for the Botswana government as a police officer, and I worked as a nurse. When my husband heeded God's calling, we both resigned from our jobs and went to Solusi College in Zimbabwe.
At the college, I took some ministerial courses to help prepare me for the role of a Bible instructor. I also had the opportunity to study with other shepherdesses. The subject I enjoyed the most was child guidance. The material touched my inner feelings, and I decided I would not work outside the home until my children were grown.
My husband and I had planned on spending two years at the college, but due to the war, the college closed down and we could not return until 1982. During that interim, we returned home and worked as a team, pastoring churches.
I am proud to serve my God and have been fortunate to have a variety of jobs that allowed me to spread the Gospel. As a nurse, mother, Sabbath School teacher, Women's Ministries leader, and Shepherdess, I have been able to share my love of Christ with others.
My different roles helped prepare me for the role of a single mother, Sadly, my dear husband died of stomach cancer in 1991. The years since then have been trying. My family does not visit me because I will not allow them to practice pagan rituals around me. I struggle to make ends meet, and I am sometimes overwhelmed at the responsibilities of being a single parent. But through it all, I have never doubted my God. I spend more time with Him now than ever before. My trust in Him is complete, and I ask for your prayers as I continue this journey called life.
