Personal reflection

First NCMI conference – dream about being surrounded by small black children – just out of the Apartheid era – not sure how that would be possible!
Start of the church.
Start of the babies Home 1999
Burnout and healing surrounded by black babies – they healed me – a place of healing no matter where you are in your life’s journey.
2010 – start of Urban Kids preschool with Amy Nicholson. Surrounded once again by small Black children – the dream more achievable now!
2011 – start of UpliftED – training preschool teachers how to teach – I have a skill set in my hands – that which I have I can give to others.
“my eye was on the preschooler, my ‘minds-eye’ on the matriculant and my hand upon the shoulder of a woman – I took note of what happened under my hand… the chin lifting, hope coming and worth and dignity being birthed”
Thousands of children later, 100s of women and now find myself in the driver’s seat of Botshabelo – not expected or ever dreamed of nor wanted.
Again – after burnout – is this my place of healing now….2024

Lessons learnt:
God’s will will be done – His plan will come to fruition….pay attention.
