Before I came to the church I was a drunkard. My life was a mess. I used to drink every weekend and even on weekdays. I lived a careless life to the point that I even dropped out of University and lost my job at the same time.
During the June holidays I went home to East-London and carried on as if life was the same pretending to be studying and working.
When the holidays were over I did not have money to go back to Cape Town and had to ask a boyfriend to send me money. When I came back I stayed in the residence at the university, even though I was no longer studying. In December my family found out that I’d dropped out of school as my results were sent home and I’d failed all my subjects.
The worst moment of my life was last year March when I woke up in a dirty shack and I had flash backs and remembered that I had been gang raped by 3 guys or more; I couldn’t remember clearly what happened or how I’d even got to the shack. At this point I realized what a mess my life was, last year in September I took the decision to commit myself to changing my life. In October I got baptize in water and began attending the Save a Tamar meetings for healing and forgiveness.
Today, my life has changed, I’ve resumed my studies in Business Management and my relationship with my family is back on track but the most important of all, is that I have a relationship with God all because someone in the YPG believed in me and invited me.
