BEING A TEACHER AND A NEW COMER TO A MISSION By: Teacher Wilma God intends to use me in a wonderful unexpected ways, it’s been a long time journey, before I discover something…something that I can strictly say, “my true fulfillment”… my essence of being a human…to do my task…my unfolding purpose. God has a plan for all of us and I believe that this is His will, that’s why he brings me into the wonderful world of teaching. Teaching is a mission, and it’s true that if you enter into the field of teaching, you have mountains to climb and mountains to move. It is not easy to climb on a mountain.
