Early this morning Craig and myself was sitting in the RLABS office and working (doing reports). During our discussion he reminded me that it was April’s Fools Day. Being the geek that I am I had saw an opportunity on how I could capitalize on this day and blog about it.
That is when we decided that I should announce that I am getting married soon as most of my followers know that I am single (on twitter and facebook). So this the status update I put up on Facebook and Twitter:
Needless to say that it was not long until someone commented on this post to congratulate me. And of course there were lots of questions asked. Some wanted to know who the lucky girl is. Other people were sceptical and mentioned that it was Aprils Fools Day and commented about it on facebook. However there was a plan of action in place. I simply deleted their comments and then thereafter sent them an inbox message informing them what I was doing. Luckily none of them was offended.
On Twitter I soon received @ messages from people congratulating me from all over the world. I soon sent a DM (Direct message) to all of them telling them what I am doing. Twitter is the Social Media application that I am best known on and some of my followers were not happy that I caught them out in this way lol. It is awesome to see how many people are actually interested in my life. I have nothing but love for you guys.
Just to say that the next time I do make the announcement, it will be for real. Problem now is that I have to just find her still. I am trusting God that He will show me who it is.
NB. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THIS BLOG POST.LOVE YOU ALL

Yesterday while we were working in the RLABS we had the privilege of being given a short blogging workshop by none other than Madam Geek ,Rene Parker. She showed us a couple of things on wordpress that we, as she puts it, well renown bloggers ,should have known. She actually put us to shame lol.
But it was a fun session and she taught us a trick or two. So she put Craig and myself to shame I must admit. It was however a pleasure to see her getting excited about blogging. I suggested that we have a little blogging off friendly competition and just to encourage each other and teach each other new things about blogging.
I am so looking forward to this interaction and learning. That is why I love my work/job. Always an opportunity to learn something new on a daily basis.

So we have been to two schools in last week, and one of the schools was Rhodes High in Cape Town. The length of the periods/classes at Rhodes High was different to those of the other schools we have been to previously. At the other schools the periods were normally 30 minutes (half hour) or 45 minutes long. At Rhodes High however the periods were an hour long and they only have one interval (break) that is an hour long as well.
So there I was thinking: “What am I suppose to do in that hour?” Ricky Johnson came up to me and told me that they usually have SU (Scripture Union) during break with some learners and asked if the guys (RLABS team) would like to join and share our stories. We naturally jumped at the opportunity and accepted the invitation.
I really admire these learners as they could be anywhere on the school with their friends doing who knows what, but they opted to come and worship God in this time. I really enjoyed this session and speaking of what Jesus did and is still doing in my life. Thank you guys for your devotion and choosing to serve Christ in a time such as this. I know and see the many choices these kids have to face and make on a daily basis and this is one of those good choices these kids have made.
Looking forward to going back there and hearing how things are going there.
Thank you Lord for the opportunity.

So there just one more thing in the Celeb for Jesus journey. On Saturday the 16th January 2010 RLABS hosted a Social Media Surgery in Vangate Mall which was managed by Craig Ross, Innovations Manager for RLABS. This was the first one of its kind that was done in Africa and in an open space like this.
I was busy creating someone a gmail account when I saw Craig speaking to someone; unknowingly that it was a reporter from our local newspaper. She was interviewing Craig and finding out more as to what was happening and what the buzz was about.
On the Wednesday the article appeared in the papers, unknowingly to me and we went out and got a copy of the paper. So there I was signing up someone onto gmail, the once drug dealer and drug addict. So now people could see the person they once new (the addict) and the person God has changed me into.
But the glory goes to God and never would I have thought that all this would happen in just over the 2 years I have been serving Christ. I am enjoying this journey with Christ 100% and I know there are lots more to come.
Jesus I love you and treasure all that you are doing in my life.

A couple of weeks ago Clinton and I headed off to Radio CCFM to represent RLABS and to informl the listeners about DAS (Drug Advice and Support) and our other projects. When we entered the doors at Radio CCFM there were already other people there waiting to do their interviews.
This was once again an amazing opportunity to proclaim the name of Jesus and tell the listeners what the lord has done in our lives. It was a 15 minute interview but once again thousands were listening. Clinton ended the show off with a bang by encouraging the listeners not to give up and always continue to pray. Powerful words that was spoken by my brother in Christ. I am sure that there was someone out that needed to hear that.
All glory and honour to God once again for the platform He gives us.
