I never went to school to learn how to read or write, not because I didn’t want to but because I was abandoned at cattle post to be a herd boy instead while others went to school.
I was not happy with my life and had no peace inside of me. This was because of the way I was raised up as a child. I had parents who never took care of me. I never went to school hence I can not read and write. I developed hatred towards my mother because she neglected me as a child. I started looking for another family on my father’s side and could not succeed as my family was divided.
I became emotionally disturbed and decided to look for happiness in different places since I had no family to support me. I started dating several women and impregnated some of them and I ended up having children with different women. I could not support myself financially because I was unemployed and every time I was required to write or fill some documents in the offices that was impossible for me as I could not read or write. Some officers would not take me seriously and that left me angry and helpless.
My worst moment was when I had to live alone. I was lonely and depressed and I could not sleep well at night. I only met my mother after 25 years since she left me as while I was still a child.
One day as I was watching the Universal Church Sunday service on E-Botswana, I decided to I send my name and number to the number on the screen. I came to church during the time of the Root event and I was taught about the chains of prayer and learned about tithes and offerings. I also participated in the movements of faith in the church.
Today I am a happily married man, I am free from hatred and depression, and I have peace inside of me. Now my parents and I have a good relationship as I forgave them and God is blessing our family every day. I am doing well in my financial life I bought myself a car which I’m using as a taxi.I have a construction company and my wife helps me with every document or paperwork that needs reading or writing as I’m still learning to read and write on my own. I thank God for helping me to change my destiny.
