I was a lost person because of my drug addiction, didn’t whant to listen to any body. My life was hell on earth. The only thing i knew was to heart my family, friends and every1 i came across by surporting my habbit. As i was living i didn’t realize how deeply i hurt my family. Then something bad happend and i was locked up in jail. As i was lying in jail and didn’t have any friends and no drugs, a voice inside of me started crying to be free and that’s when i realise something is wrong with me. I ask the court to help me because i need help with my addiction. I had applied to many rehabilitation sentresess no 1 could help me. After 6 months of waiting for an opening and still using i got a call from Hesketh King. At first i thought whould this place help help me or isit just some drill camp, because of the Salvation Army logo. The person who called me had a very calm voice and for the firts time in years i actually listen to someone. Then the day comes that i have to leave for my journey of recovery. the firs day i set on that ground something calm down inside of my, i just felt this calmness inside and was wondering what is happening to me. I got inside and there’s where i meet Mrs Plaatjies she ask me if im orait and if i need anything, the firt thing that came to me was, yes i need a fix, then she ask me a few questions and tells me i will be staying for 12 weeks and she is my counselor. Never had i thought that i will be free of my habbit. Today i thank God for all the people working at Hesketh King for helping me. As i started talking about my problems with my counselor i started to see how selfish, angry, out of control, heartless, and never mind i was living. As i started to listen and practice what she told me, i stated to see all my problems were made by me myself and i must fix myself. Then i met Major Allestor Wood he was my spiritual guidance. At first i didn’t know what to say, bt major ask me do i know Jesus. Suddenly i remembered the voice that was crying, as i looked at him talking to me about the plans God have for me and that God loves me, i started to feel this lonley part of me crying even harder. Then i told major about my past and he stated praying for me. I can still the calmness in his voice wile praying. And then it happend, i just whant to be alone, as i left major’s office i got in my room, it felt like everything is coming down on me and started talking to God asking Him to forgive me and that i whant him to be my saviour and best friend i just started crying. Thank u lord for the blessings on me. Everything started to feel good inside of me, i go to my group classes thats where u meet Mr Johann giving the 12 steps to a better life, yor he is a real strictly no nonsense father figure guy. As i listen to what he’s saying i started to make drastic changes in my life and started to see things i should do not want to do, yor my tears are rolling while tipping for now i would just whant to say thank u God for putting this great good people in my life to bring me closer to u Lord. May God bless all personel working at Hesketh King and keep them well so that they can help many more.
