If I remember very well, when I grew up I did not want to involve myself in jobs that involve working with a lot of people such as nursing, teaching as well as counselling. The reason was that I didn’t find it easy talking with people and I wanted a job that is so peaceful such as working in my own office. I had these thoughts without asking God if it was possible. And I guess God would listen to my opinions and smile saying “that is not the path I created you for.” He had plans for me and he led me to eSwatini at African Christian College in 2015 and that’s when the journey and his purpose started.
It has been four good years being at African Christian College and it has shaped me to become the woman I am today. I had little knowledge before I came here but I am now filled with useful knowledge that can change the world around me. Things were not easy as you might think, the college challenged me academically, mentally, and spiritually. I thank God for helping me throughout these challenges. Being a wife, a new mother, as well as a student, wasn’t easy. I had sleepless nights because of assignments, and the baby, which caused me to even fall asleep during lessons. At times I almost quit school just to lightened the load but the voice came to me saying “Don’t disappoint me!” Sometimes I could carry this guilt with me thinking why did I even think of applying, giving myself a burden not knowing that God is behind everything.
As time went on things started to change and I began to fall in love with life at ACC. I started to cope up, making new friends and I learned a lot from different people from different cultures. I am in love with the Counselling major I chose – helping people with different situations. My previous perception was totally replaced with new ideas, knowledge, and views. A few weeks are remaining for me to depart from this place holding my degree. I can boldly say that I am totally a different person than I was. That is the reason I say with God all things are possible.
African Christian College is part of my life and I am also part of it. I will always pray for this college to keep on transforming people like what it did to me so that many will go out and help people in the world.
