KEY QUOTES from this story:

What happened to me on the 6th of March 1999... I was 47 years of age then, that's when the Lord touched my heart.


I was an alcoholic, I knocked around in the parks... 


I wanted to go up to the mission to look around for more drink… and I can hear this pastor preaching in the church….I was still drunk… I said, I just want prayers, please. I'm an alcoholic. I want to stop drinking. And when he prayed, I don't know why I cried...



My partner, I lived with him for thirty years… I said to him, I said, "I want security"... And I know that this is the security that I was searching for all the time, Lord Jesus. He was my security, that I was searching for.


I thank him for my life today, because he brought me from nowhere... He saved my life. If He didn't find me, I'd be either still out there in the world drunk. If not, I would've been dead… If I died, then at that time I'd go to hell… because I didn't know the Lord Jesus.


I shared with Peter, I said, I can't live with you no more, meaning I can't sleep with you no more. It's wrong. He said to me, "we'll get married". I was willing to say, I'll walk away from all that 30 years.


Because we honoured God, all doors were opened... all doors were opened.

So we got married down at our little camp on the 18th of August 2001.



I love John chapter 14, verse 6, because Jesus said "I am the way, the truth and the life," because he showed me the truth, because he is the truth. And he showed me the way and the way is to him.


I just live for him daily. My salvation is with the Lord today. Not yesterday. It's finished. Not tomorrow. We don't know what tomorrow is going to bring.


Make your life right today. Be prepared.
