John and I are old friends and we are born from religious families. Our parents were friends as well.
We did our nursery, primary and secondary education in catholic schools. He wanted to be lawyer and me a medical doctor.
Very young we were servant at our local Catholic Church meaning that we spent most of the time between school and church till when John started facing family challenges and eventually his parents divorced. This lead John to fight the battle in another dimension .
Before I knew it he was a born again very committed in a revived spirit filled church while I had adhered to sportive clubs from karate to wrestling and my life became a contrast. I was involved in two extremely opposite worlds, Sunday morning I was at my catholic church, afternoon in the stadium with the most violent and wicked wrestlers.
One day John, a former catholic servant who crossed the red line invited me to his church during a revival meeting and that is how I tasted the very first vibrant sermon and eventually I was saved. After school of medicine, from one hospital to another my spiritual growth hasn’t been steady, the pressure of work supplanted my spiritual commitment till when I discovered love world in 2005 then got acquainted with Christ embassy Randburg in 2006; I attended night of bliss 2008.
Remarkably during autumn session 2011 in randburg at healing school I was baptized in water. John eventually became a lawyer and he was ordained pastor in the DRC.
