False and Misleading Information

The allegations published by News24 about Kwasizabantu after their seven-month investigation are not anything similar to what I have experienced. I believe they are false and misleading. The term ‘smear campaign’ is so true.

My first visit to Kwasizabantu Mission more than 35 years ago, when I was only about 6 years old, made such a positive impact on my life. My parents were not happily married and after only one weekend at Kwasizabantu, God, in His grace, began to heal their broken relationship and their broken lives. My dad was raised without any knowledge of God and my mom had a difficult childhood. I was not born into a Christian home.

For many years after that first visit, our family visited and stayed at Kwasizabantu for short periods. When I was 17 years of age I stayed at Kwasizabantu for about 10 months.

I have now lived in Perth, Australia, for more than 13 years as my husband works here.

We have been to many churches in Perth but have not experienced even one place that helps people like Kwasizabantu Mission does. In fact, if someone was involved in the occult (Perth is the occult capital of Australia), drug or alcohol addiction, pornography (or anything similar), and wanted to be set free, my suggestion would be for them to seek God’s help and if possible to go to Kwasizabantu Mission.

We frequently still listen to the messages preached at Kwasizabantu. I am so grateful to the Lord for His grace in keeping us faithful to Him. God is to be praised.

I am indebted to Kwasizabantu Mission. They helped me when I was in need of a Saviour and showed me the love of Christ. Uncle Erlo also showed me by his selfless life what it means to take up the cross daily and follow Christ. Praise be to God for Kwasizabantu Mission – it is the place where I was helped.

F.B. Meyer in his book “Christ in Isaiah” says: ‘The prime blessedness of the kingdom of heaven is for the poor in spirit, the persecuted and the tempted, the wandering sheep and the famishing child’.
