De la 17 ani cunosc congregatia Kwasizabantu Voiteg.

De 12 ani locuiesc aici  si iau parte la tot ce se face zilnic.

Am crescut într-o familie crestina, protestanta, mergeam regulat la biserica, dar in ascuns traiam o viata dubla. Acasa eram neascultatoare, obraznica, ma intalneam cu baieti, am ajuns sa merg si in discoteci. Mergeam din rau in mai rau. Dar duminica nu lipseam de la biserica, mai cantam si in cor, flirtam si acolo cu baieti, mai ales cand venea vreun musafir.

Doar gândul la comportamentul meu duplicitar mă umple și astăzi de rușine!

Asa am fost pana cand mama noastra, care a plecat de curand la Domnul, ne-a adus la Voiteg, pe mine si cateva surori de-ale mele. Ea mai fusese inaintea noastra la misiunea din Voiteg, a auzit mesajul predicat aici si vazand tineri care traiesc in curatie si a spus ca, daca asa ceva exista, atunci si fetele ei trebuie sa o auda! Numai prin mila si harul Lui atat de mare fata de mine, Domnul mi-a atins inima, mi-am vazut pacatele si viata intreaga patata, murdara, dubla. Mi-am dat seama că ma indreptam spre Iad, desi credeam ca sunt o crestina obisnuita. Aici am auzit predici cum nu mai auzisem in viata mea pana atunci: fara ocolisuri se spunea pacatului pe nume. Mesaj clar. Practic. Plin de viata.

Dumnezeu chiar lucreaza si inviaza morti spiritual prin aceasta lucrare, daca m-a inviat si pe mine care eram moarta in pacatele mele.

Am aflat ca exista o singura cale de a fi liber de pacat, si anume sa ma smeresc si sa imi marturisesc pacatele mele in fata unui om a lui Dumnezeu, pentru ca mare putere are rugaciunea unui neprihanit! Eu de multe ori am plans si m-am cait in camaruta mea, dar nu am gasit eliberare. Asa ca am calcat pe eul meu mare si am marturisit toate gunoaiele vietii mele in fata unui om al lui Dumnezeu. Apoi mi-am cautat fostii prieteni, mi-am cerut iertare si de la ei pentru felul in care am trait desi ma numeam crestina.

Rand pe rand, Dumnezeu mi-a adus aminte si alte lucruri, si altele.

Dupa ce le marturiseam ma simteam atat de usoara, de libera, imi venea sa zbor! Pentru asa sentiment merita sa traiesti!

A inceput atunci o viata superba de tanara fata care-L iubea pe DL Isus si voia Lui mai mult decat orice. Nu-mi lipsea nimic!

Apoi Domnul a gasit cu cale sa ma casatoresc, in curatie, cu un baiat din cor, la care nu m-as fi gandit vreodata ca o sa fie sotul meu! Nicio privire din partea lui cum ca m-ar placea, nici cel mai mic semn.

Am cautat voia Domnului si El insusi mi-a vorbit in multe feluri, foarte clar și am înțeles el este  pregătit pentru mine din vesnicie. Am facut acest pas prin credinta, dandu-ne prima data mana in ziua nuntii. Nici un timp de prietenie inainte.

Suntem de aproape 7 ani casatoriti, Dumnezeu ne-a daruit 3 copilasi intre timp. Amandoi o putem marturisi oricand, oriunde ca nu exista viata de familie mai frumoasa decat atunci cand Domnul insusi iti alege partenerul de viata. Suntem peste masura de binecuvantati in toate domeniile vietii. Am cel mai bun sot si tata pentru copiii nostri, e deosebit de talentat in multe domenii si imi este un ajutor si o binecuvantare in viata spirituala. Niciodata nu as fi ales eu mai bine decat El!

Sotul meu lucreaza in agricultura pentru sustinerea misiunii, iar pe mine Domnul m-a chemat ca educatoare in gradinita. Copiii nostri ne sunt tare scumpi si vedem mana Lui Dumnezeu peste ei.

Cu multa recunostinta lui Dumnezeu si oamenilor prin care lucreaza,

I have known the KSB Voiteg congregation since I was 17 years old. I have now been here for 12 years and I am a part of the work every day.

I grew up in a Christian Protestant family. We regularly attended church, but in secret, I used to live a double life. At home I was disobedient, cheeky, going out with boys, and I even got to go to the discos. But on Sundays I would not miss a service and I even sang in a choir. Here I flirted with boys, especially when a new one visited.

Just thinking back of my double life fills me with a lot of shame.

It was our mother (she recently went to be with the Lord) who brought me and some of my sisters to Kwasizabantu mission. When she had heard the message that was preached here, and saw the young people living in purity, she said that if there is such a life, then her daughters must hear about it also.

Through the great mercy and grace of our God, the Lord touched my heart and I saw my sins and my stained, dirty, double life. I realized I was heading towards hell, even though I thought I was an ordinary Christian. Here I heard services as I had never heard in my life: it was frank and sin was named. The message was clear, practical, and full of life.

The Lord really works and renews lives through this ministry because He also resurrected me.

I learned that there is a unique way to be free from sin, namely to humble myself and confess my sins before a man of God because the prayer of a righteous one avails much! I had to step on my big ego and humbly confess the shameful things. Thereafter I looked for my old friends and apologized to them for the way that I lived whilst I called myself a Christian. One by one, the Lord reminded me of things. Every time I confessed them I felt so free. I felt like flying! It is worth living for such a feeling.

Then I started a wonderful life of a girl who loves the Lord Jesus and His will more than anything. I did not lack anything.

The Lord also led me into marriage in purity, together with a man whom I never thought would become my husband! He never flirted with me, not even in the slightest way. And he asked me to also pray and seek the will of God. After seeking God's will, the Lord Himself spoke to me in different and very clear ways. I understood that the Lord had prepared him to be my husband from the beginning of time. I took this step in faith. We held hands for the first time on our wedding day, without any friendship before the time.

We have now been married for almost 7 years and the Lord has blessed us with three children. We can both testify at anytime and in any place that there is not a more beautiful marriage life than when the Lord Himself chooses your partner. We are abundantly blessed in all aspects of life. I have the best husband and father for our children. He is very gifted in many areas and he is also a blessing to me in my spiritual life. I could never have chosen better than what the Lord did. My husband works at the mission farm to sustain the mission and I am a creche teacher. Our children are very sweet and we see God's Hand on them.

With gratefulness to God and the people through whom He works,
