Teaching in Sonderwater

This post forms part of the #Road2e2 countdown: 57 Days ’till #e2

Sonderwater is an informal community just outside of Potchefstroom, North West Province, South Africa. I worked here for 2 years overseeing a creche and making sure the 80 kids are fed each day. I’ve always wanted to help people and share the love of Jesus Christ with them and in Sonderwater I had the opportunity to do so. All of this happened in 2005-2006 and on the one hand it was a lifetime ago and on the other it is only a wink away. I am thankful for every child and adult that crossed my path. You always think that you go out to help others but in the end they help you.

When you are in the community where people have to carry water for kilometres and live in shacks and make shift housing you realise that you don’t need much and that you are privileged and blessed.

I want to encourage you to reach out to someone and be touched by their life.
