Testimony of Lawrence

testimony of ex drug addict

Wow, what a powerful testimony from Brother Lawrence. A messed-up young man from Pretoria, bound by gangsterism and drug-addiction for over 20 years. He felt like a good-for-nothing outcast in society. Just as he was about to take his own life as he had enough, he decided to say his last prayer.

It’s in this prayer that God took a hold of him.

He suddenly started speaking in tongues for about 45 minutes to an hour. He says he never spoke in tongues before. He started feeling a shift within him, as if something was leaving his body. Right then and there he realised that he needed help.

He heard about Victory Outreach from his mother as she knew someone in that church. He immediately called his mother, and he received the phone number of V.O Pretoria. He spoke to a sister in the church and got connected.

He started attending church services and life groups. His life drastically changed within those 4 years when he gave his life to Jesus Christ. He went into the Recovery Home in Cape Town and has been there for almost 3 and a half years, where he assisted the home directors in discipling others that was like him. He went back to his hometown of Pretoria where he is evangelising and telling the people about the love of Jesus Christ and how He changed his life.

Recently Brother Lawrence assisted in the planting of the newest church in Wynberg in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, crusading, and evangelising to the lost and hurting communities of Wynberg, Ottery, Lotus River and the surrounding areas.
