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 www.miaauw.co.za (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!
