Sonderwater 2 12.04.05

Building on yesterday’s article and on the #Road2e2 series where I share info about people, events and places that’s come my way on my journey I want to dedicate another post on the people of Sonderwater. I introduced you to this community yesterday.

The community of Sonderwater called me Maspoti. We are not sure why but it could be because I handed out beanies when I started working in Sonderwater. When I arrived in the community you could hear the kids shout “Maspoti!”

We first taught at the Water tower. Here we fed the kids and then gave them lessons.

Later we got a venue at a local church. An American Mission team built a corrugated iron structure for us and here we started a preschool.

In this corrugated iron building we had a preschool in the mornings and needlework classes for the community ladies in the afternoons. The summers where hot and the winters cold but here I learnt that anything is possible. I witnessed miracles here in my own life and in the life of others.

It was during this time that I realized that I am a teacher at heart. So much so that I handed over my work to someone and took a year off to pursue a post graduate diploma in teaching. I would always be thankful to the people of Sonderwater for this realisation.
