Former Skeem Saam Actress Pearl Maimela Becomes A Pastor. It’s normal for entertainers to venture into other careers and callings as the time goes by and it seems like former Skeem Saam actress Pearl Maimela may have just found hers.has revealed that she is now a ministering pastor.

The actress, best known for her role as Sonti on Skeem Saam, opened up to TshisaLive publication about her new love of preaching. She also shared how excited her family is about her new journey and how they came from far to watch her give her first sermon.  

“My grandparents are very excited for me. They had to drive all the way from KwaMhlanga to come see my first sermon and they were so proud. For them it’s not about a different church, it’s about the whole purpose of serving God. It made them more proud that I’m still along the foundation that they laid… everyone was happy, they just didn’t see it because I was a little bit wild” she said.

Pearl began her spiritual journey in February this year under the pastoral guide of Pastor David of Triumphant Church and admits that she is now in it for the long run.

“I was fortunate and privileged to be guided by a powerful pastor… it’s slowly growing on me and I don’t think I’ll be giving up on that any time soon. When you’ve got it, it’s not easy for you to think of letting go. I found Joy in God and I wish anybody else can just feel the same and just devout themselves to him.” she said.

Pearl assured her fans that becoming a pastor won’t affect her career and she has been enjoying some time off work while taking care of her family.

For those who are concerned over how the actress will balance her new found love for ministering and acting. It seems like she has it all planned out as this is not her first time having to juggle many responsibilities at the same time. The actress went on to reveal that she’ll be making a comeback on Skeem Saam later in the show and that people should tune in.

“If you watch closely on Skeem Saam, I’ll be making a comeback so stay glued. I’m also modelling now and I feel like my profession won’t have to interfere with my spiritual journey because I’ll have to balance the two depending on how the spirit operates. I’m happy that I don’t have an option to leave neither because I’ve been called to do both. Maybe in the future, I’ll have my own church and I’ll see where the direction takes me but for now I’ll just try to dabble the two and take care of my family,” she said.
