Psalm 146:2: I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

I started attending this programme on the 5th of May 2016. I won this battle through the motivation, guide and inspiration of Mr Mahlangu our counsellor.

I used to think that I’m witched but I’m not. He showed me the power of prayer and the responsibility as a man. He showed me the power of believing in myself and God (faith). Now I’m no longer smoking Nyaope. I nearly lost everything including my fiancé and my two beautiful girls (5 years and 3 years).

Now I can see that I can become anything I want in life. I’m no longer in the darkness, I can see the light where ever I go, I’m beginning to get back in the community. I’m now a born again Christian. I don’t steal or lie again. The days of my sorrows and suffering are over. I trust in God and in myself. I’m a better person and I’m thankful to God for giving us a leader like Mr. Mahlangu. I wish there can be more leaders like him in our community, so that they can help others that are in the darkness to see the light again. Now I know how to choose friends and behave around people. Now I have a mission, vision and values.

I wish they can help me find a job to feed my family as this is a duty of man to make sure that his family go to school and bed with full stomachs and give them the besteducation that I never got. I want to be a good role model to my kids and others. I wish God can give him a healthy life to live long and help other see the light as well.

Warm Regards,
