The excitement that filled my mind when I had gotten the news that the Bishop of Gaborone would be send some people to Mariannhill to spend some time in our new media department.
October 18, 2011 Fr Andrew and Sr Pastimo arrived at Mariannhill early hours of Tuesday morning. With very little rest soon it was time to start attend the media workshop.
I conducted the workshop (having been my first) and was thrilled to hear that Sr Pastimo had studied Media and Journalism, which thankfully made things easier and understandable. Numerous questions asked which made me feel challenged to think as if were learning too, in order to give answers that were valuable and which made sense.
“I look at the internet in a totally different way” said Fr Andrew. I then knew my vision and aspirations were at the right standards, and felt overwhelmed when I heard Fr Andrew’s great remark.
My hope is that Fr Andrew and Sr Patsimo continue to use the tools I had taught and conducted at the workshop but also to share this importance of media with the people in Gaborone.
Gaborone you are always welcome here at Mariannhill Media and was a pleasure introducing and walking you through the steps of the Mariannhill Media world!
