Khensani was only a child when she found herself drawn to the occult world. “When I was in primary school, I fainted during lessons or fell into trances. I would speak meaningless words and uttered ‘prophecies’ on people,” recollects the now 35-year-old woman from Johannesburg, South Africa.
Her parents picked up on her calling, so they bought all the regalia she needed to be a witch doctor.
“I became violent and bullied other students at school. Once, I hit the school principal with my fist. I could not tolerate men if they were romantically attracted to me. Boys smelt like goat blood to me,” she says, recalling the dark world of the occult.
She came in contact with an evangelical church that fervently prayed for her. “I experienced that the spirits left me,” she recollects. “The bishop kept praying until I was fully delivered and the heaviness left. I abandoned my practices and dressed like a normal woman. I stopped drinking alcohol and started serving God in the worship team. The bishop gave me the Gospel of John, which I began to read,” she explains as she talks about her new life in Christ.
Today, Khensani takes part in Bible League’s Project Philip Bible studies. “I enjoy the So Choose Life and Reaching Towards the Goal booklets, which make sense to me. I enjoy reading about Paul and John in the Bible with the young people on Friday evenings, and the ladies meet in the morning.”
Moved by God’s work in her life, Khensani’s parents burned all the witchcraft regalia.
She is grateful to God for a new life in Christ. “I sincerely thank Bible League for teaching God’s Word. I pray that the Lord may bless you and give you more so that many still walking in darkness can hear the Good News,” she concludes.
