A must read testimony.
 
Greetings Pastor Chuks,  I trust you are well and that you are enjoying the heavenly blessings. 
 
I am 19 years of age, originally from Durban but staying in Blairgowrie on Susman and I am a member of Grace House Family Church, serving under the ushering department. 
 
I hereby write this email to testify on what God has done in my midst. My story trace back from last year when I was abandoned and dis-owned by my biological father because I differed in his belief of consulting the ancestors. In all this, he stopped paying my varsity fees as I was attending, one of the top Hotel schools in South Africa. By faith I trusted God for my fees and I’d still go to school regardless of the unpaid fees, I’d walk an hour every day to and from school. At the end of the year the school directors unfortunately told me I cannot come back for my second year since I have a debt of R60 000. Regardless of all this I told God that I will still cling unto to the hospitality industry and hold on to my big dream of being a hotelier. This year I found a waitressing job in a restaurant that is five minutes away from my house and I would not say my work experience there is the best as I was used with working with hotels not small restaurants but I trusted the word of God, I stood in faith believing it’s the days of humble beginnings.
 
Now I’ve been declaring with the church that “May is our month of elevation”, where God will exceed our expectations. I had believed God for a job placement at either the Michelangelo Hotel or the Saxon Hotel, being the top 2 hotels in Johannesburg.
 
A thought crossed my mind on Sunday that May is almost over but I haven’t seen any results, nonetheless I still declared God’s increase.
 
 A very strange thing happened on Monday at work as we took turns to take tables to serve, it was my turn to take a table then I got to serve this couple who was so excited about being in our restaurant for the first time. I gave best of my service, suggested the meals for them and checked them every now and then. Then out of interest the lady asked me about myself as she commented that I look really young, she asked on what I do besides working in the restaurant I’m working in. There I was, presenting myself and the conversation got to where I mentioned that I want to work for the one of most reputable Hotel. The lady just laughed, and in my mind I was unsure as to why she was laughing, I thought maybe my dreams are too big. But No, she told me she’s laughing Cause she’s the HR Manager at one of the top 5 star Hotel and her husband that she was with is a “Hot kitchen chef” (my favourite part of the kitchen as a chef).
I knew God had sent these people for me, it could never be a coincidence that they were at the restaurant for the first time, they got to be served by me and it happened that I mention straight to them that I want to work at the Saxon Hotel. I believe I was at the right place, at the right time, with the right people, saying the right thing. They gave me a business card to contact them and that was the first thing I did on Tuesday morning and by 1:00pm I was called to come for an interview yesterday (Wednesday the 29th), I stand and testify that I got the job on the spot, they said they look more into personality than skills and qualifications. They said they are willing to help in every way even with my education so I can go back to school next year for my qualifications. Glory to God, my mouth is singing a new song, every day of this week I’ve been testifying. I will be starting on Sunday. To God be all the glory.
 Thank you Pastor Chuks and Augusta for the word of faith.
May the Lord our God increase you always and shower you with more of his blessings.

Good day Pastor Augusta,
I just want to thank God for what he has done for me through the word of God that you and Pastor Chuks have been teaching us. 
Sometime in 2017 my husband and I decided to apply for Australian visas. It was a very long process with a lot of stages of which in all of the stages we were just seeing the hand of the lord. Just after we had submitted the visas in 2018 I got very sick. It all started with my eyes I couldn’t see properly. I went to the doctors and was diagnosed of a condition called Myasthenia Gravis and people who suffer from this condition have somehow even become disabled as it weakens all your muscles such that you won’t be able to walk or lift up your hands. The doctors decided to put me on medication and somehow my condition deteriorated, I became so weak couldn’t eat, couldn’t walk etc. I saw myself deteriorating, I lost a lot of weight am sure some people in the church can testify, I went from a size 18 to a size 10. I then decided I have to do something after a testimony you shared with us of a lady who said she would take the word like medicine. I was supposed to go and do medicals for my visas and according to their rules with the condition that I had I was not gonna pass those medicals but I stood on the word of God and said I am not sick. When I went for those tests I remember those days I was so weak that I could not walk properly so I prayed to God for special strength. When the day came I woke up so full of energy I can’t explain it. The forms that they gave us to fill in and declare if you are sick myself I wrote there I am not sick, are you on any medication? I said no. They did blood tests to check traces of medication in your blood etc but mine came out clear and my medicals were approved just like that. I started to speak the word of God over my life. I told myself the devil is at work and his aim is to steal my vision and I have to stand in faith. I began to take the word like medicine, morning, afternoon and at night. I even overdosed. I also kept speaking to my vision board and declared that my vision will not be hijacked by the devil. I would be admitted into hospital and they would put me on a drip and whilst they do that I would hold the drips and start speaking to them. I went for an open chest surgery in January and with the word of God in my mouth even the doctors could not believe how quick I recovered. They took out some growth that they said was on my thymus and glory to God they even confirmed that it was not cancerous. I spoke the word of God over my life until the lord turned it all around. I was on very heavy steroids and as I am writing this am glad to share with you that I am not on medication any more. The doctors had told me I would live on this medication for the rest of my life and I refused that with the word of God in my mouth. To sum it all up the visas were supposed to come in 3 months but instead the devil had decided to shift my focus. So 13 months later the visas were not there. As soon as I saw that I was getting stronger I decided to war away with my visas in prayer. I went on a 3 days and 3 nights fast finished on Saturday the 27th of April. On Sunday the 28th pastor Chuks spoke about how God will not start something and not finish it and that if God is on our side who can be against us. I rejoiced on that word like I had been given a lotto ticket because I believed God had spoken to me. I kept speaking that word and was at church again on Wednesday the 1st of May where one of the prayer points was my file of honour is being opened today and on that very night at 12:59am (4 hours after I came from church) I received an email confirming that my visas had been approved. We did not just get ordinary visas we got a permanent residence status in Australia. 
God exceeded my expectations. I have seen miracles after miracles. The things that I went through, all I can say is if it wasn’t for the Lord the devil would have swallowed me. May the name of Jesus be glorified forever and once again may God bless you Pastor Augusta and Pastor Chuks for the word that you are teaching us. This word works.
Blessings..
