yourself in five words.
Bold, fearless, daring, spiritual and loving.
the best piece of advice you've ever received?
To be myself.
the most ridiculous thing you've ever done?
I really don't remember.
is your most treasured possession?
How would you say knowing God has changed your life?
It makes me
who I am. I'm not fearful because God is the Word that gives
me instruction everyday on how I should run my life. The Word of
God is clear. His Spirit makes everything better and gives me the
power to be whoever I want to be.
do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
Not knowing God.
have any strange hobbies?
Watching TV a lot.
do you dislike most about your appearance?
There are some areas of my skin that are dry. I think it's
because of the harsh conditions I grew up in.
is your greatest extravagance?
Shopping! I love shopping and I love to look good.
do you have in your fridge?
I have fruits and other healthy things.
is your greatest fear?
Ever since I got to know Christ I don't have fear. If anything
freaks me out I work on it immediately by the Word of God.
have you got in your pockets right now?
I don't have pockets.
is your favourite journey?
When I was growing up in the rural areas I witnessed the faithfulness
of God, where he took me from nothing to where I am today. It's
one of my very humbling journeys where I say ‘wow had it not
been for God I wouldn't be here.'
are your heroes in real life?
My mother. She was left a widow at 36 and she raised eight children.
Now she is 68 and she never remarried. She made it a point to send
all of us to school and she worked hard and sacrificed a lot. I
look to her for strength.
and where were you happiest?
I'm happy every day. One of the things that my mum gave us
is knowing God. From then on I've never really had problems.
Whenever I'm in trouble I pray and God always comes through.
were you like at school?
I was daring and I was competing with boys. My brothers empowered
me and affirmed me a lot.
are you doing next?
I'm going to finish my work. I'm working on TaLi's
