WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE...
2007 -2009-- The majority of these two years I lived in Africa as a career missionary.
March 2009-- Following furlough to the 'states’, we discovered mom needed another major foot reconstructive operation so I remained in the states to assist my family.
June 2010 --Following a choice of sin with an African man I loved (Mwenya), I lost my first child in a miscarriage. Mwenya and I feel a void, yet we believe God is the one who "gives" and "takes away" and we rest in peace knowing our son (Buanda) is in the arms of the Almighty God. Praise Jesus for His forgiveness and grace which continues to redeemed and restored me.
2011 -- I remained state side with my parents to assist my father who struggles with many health conditions and pursue Therapeutic Massage -my career prior to moving to Africa 2007.
January 2012- August 2012-- I graduated from D.T.S '[Discipleship Training School ] in Livingstone, Zambia. The D.T.S. is a prerequisite course for the 1 year [B.A.S Birth Attendant School], a High Risk Midwifery School with University of the Nations.
