I made a living in a foreign country

I grew up in a dysfunctional family, my mother separated from my father and ran away 9kwith me. She then left me with my uncles to go look for a job. My relatives started abusing me both physically and emotionally to the point that I ran away and went back to my father’s house. Life was never easy for me.

I finished school and came to Botswana to look for a job. I used to sleep in abandoned buildings, with police hot on my heels. Surviving was a daily struggle. I met a woman whom I thought was the one to marry me but unfortunately she dumped me. That led me to fall into depression and I started drinking and living recklessly. I became a womanizer. I was on a revenge mission for what had happened to me.

My family was also suffering from curses of death; every year someone died. The worst moment in my life was when I got into a fight and I was beaten up and I also found out that I had used my whole salary that night.

One day I received a pamphlet from the Universal Church and I decided to go. That’s when my life turned around. I learned about the chains of prayer and I decided to join them. I was delivered from smoking and drinking and the curse of death was broken in my family. Later the Campaign of Israel was introduced and I decided to join. After my sacrifice I was able to open my own company.2q

Today my life is a reflection of my faith in action. I am happily married; my company is doing well, I have 45 employees. I have a car and my family is not struggling anymore. I am currently building my house. I thank God for everything.
