My wife and I attended Bethal Christian Ministries, in Bothasig. We moved to Retreat but we could not find a church that we could fellowship at due to my working hours. My sister Brenda introduced us to Alpha by inviting us to her celebration dinner. My wife and I decided to join the next Alpha group.
We immediately clicked with our group. I was really impressed by the work that was done all around the world by Alpha especially the testimonies of the broken and lost people that found themselves in prison, and how Alpha reached out to them and their lives were transformed. The Thursday before the weekend, we decided not to go away. Curiosity got the better of us, especially since we loved the Lord and knew that this was a tactic of the enemy to prevent us from receiving our blessing. Sister Vrede prayed for us as a couple and she mentioned that the Lord was happy with us and she confirmed that the “contract is signed”. She did not know about the business I was planning. The weekend was confirmation for me.
I have more quiet time while waiting for my next pick up or pull over during my breaks just to speak to my Father. I have learnt the secret is prayer. I have also removed myself from the drivers engaging groups due to the inappropriate chats. During my breaks I used to listen to music only, but now I have discovered the Alpha videos which I watch regularly. Lastly as a couple we have started a connect group at our home.
