Workers' Day 2006 testimony

May 1st, International Workers' Day, commemorating the historic struggle of working people throughout the world, is also celebrated every year as a Public Holiday in South Africa.

That was the tragic day, ten years ago on which my motorbike accident took place after the old lady skipped the stop street ... a public holiday every year filled with painful memories for me ... especially the nine Workers' days before this one:

This past Monday, three weeks ago, has just been the first Worker's Day in ten years that I celebrated with dignity, rather than mourned, like I did the nine Worker's Days before.

The reason for that is that I had a motorbike accident on Worker's Day 1996 - which reduced me, in a matter of split seconds, and after a total of 46 operations from a world class Electronic Engineer and adrenalin junkie into an embittered, brain-damaged, medically boarded pensioner trapped inside a broken body - this tragedy took place exactly 10 years ago!

The Lord has performed so many miracles in my life during this past decade - I can go on talking for hours on that alone, but you can read all of it on the internet at (I incidently had feedback last Sunday morning before church from a lady from the Netherlands from my website!) - on how the Lord has miraculously healed me, especially after the act of forgiveness from my side, and the prayers and guidance from all of you from Valley, especially Mike - Thanks so very much for that!

The Lord has healed me in such a way that I was able to start working fulltime again, this time as computer programmer, after an absence of nearly 10 years, on the 23rd of August 2005!

As a result. this was the first Workers Day in 10 years that I could celebrate with dignity as a worker once again, and all the Glory goes to the Lord for that!
