Sarah Nabiwafu, Fields of Life Child Outreach Officer, has been involved with Fields of Life since 2004. She is very passionate about her work, and we thought you would like to get to know more about her. Here’s what Sarah had to say…
Tell us a bit about yourself:
My father died, in 1982, when I was a little girl, so I was raised by many hands. With the hope I got through my Sunday School teacher, the Lord Jesus saw me through it all, and I was able to attain some education. This enabled me to get to where I am today; a Teacher and Child Evangelist.
Tell us a fact about yourself:
When I was a little girl I loved scouting, I remember I used to run behind the soldiers, during their training, after the bush war in 1988.
But I fell in love with church, so much so that I wanted to go for Clergyship; after consulting with some people, I was advised to acquire a professional course to enhance my Clergyship so I took on Education.
However, Child Evangelism is my darling now. It is my hearts desire to speak to children. I love to be around children, and more so, sharing the true wonderful word of God in a story telling manner.
When did you first get involved with Fields of Life and Why?
I first got involved with Fields of Life, through their first constructed school (Fields of Life Academy), where I was as a teacher in 2004.
Later, when I trained as a Child Evangelist, I gained more skills which enabled me to connect with a lady who recommended me to work with Fields of Life supported schools two days a week. This involved following up on teachers and offering on site training in 2007.
As the passion grew stronger, the two days were not enough, and I got full employment in 2012. Since then, it has been me and Fields of Life!
What is your favourite thing about your job?
My favourite thing is to see boys and girls eyes opened wide as you speak to them the wonderful true word of God, and when they humble themselves to pray; and the truth that children can believe and be saved.
What has been the most exciting thing since you started?
The most exciting thing is to meet the boys and girls I first interacted with, who are now a powerful Christian youth wanting to share the Good News, especially in the camp ministry.
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
Simple, thoughtful and sensitive.
