I would like to share with everyone about the first person that we gave a cane to in South Africa in 2010.
His name is Thokozani. He had lost his sight 6 years before we met him, and he was very depressed and spent his life sitting in a hut, not even able to go to the outhouse by himself.When his sister brought him to us, we gave him a cane and started some training on how to use it; you could have not wiped the smile off his face. Before we left I shared with him my story about Jesus in my life and he decided he too wanted Jesus in his life. I was able to lead him to the Lord.
The next year, in 2011 we returned and he did not know we were coming. When we visited him he told me he had a dream that I was coming to see him and was bringing him a present. Well, I did have a present for him and gave him a Proclaimer, a talking Bible, in Zulu. He was very happy and said the following Sunday that he fell asleep listening to God’s word that night. That same year his church was having their first baptism and not only did Thokozani get baptized but I was blessed by getting to baptize him in the river.
In 2012 again we went and by this time Thokozani was living by himself, doing his own laundry, walking through the bush to catch a ride into town, and doing quite well on his own.
This is the reason I believe God has put this ministry on my heart. Thokozani went from being totally shut down to an independent man with Jesus in his heart.
