Mama Preacher :)

by - 1:25 AM

This is Preacher Chidende (that's her real first name, I kid you not). A most remarkable lady! We struck up a convo while I was out on the verandah journalling & reading my Bible (she works for the hostel). Mama Preacher told me that ever since she was little, she loved singing & reaching out to people while sharing God's word with them through songs. I was intrigued! She taught me some beautiful Shona songs with my uke & wrote the words in my journal. I encouraged her to keep doing what she does & she shared with me her struggles to provide for her children and an orphaned nephew. We agreed to meet the next morning to worship God & pray together Sometimes I think, I do not deserve such unexpected blessings! But they're so precious in my faith journey, & I thank God for leading me to such beautiful people :)

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
