Shirley tried many times to pull herself out of debt. She would apply for loans to pay what she owed others. Even though she worked hard, she never had any money of her own. I could not afford to buy the basic needs such as food and clothing because the money lenders withheld my bank card. I did not have chairs to sit on in my house. I used crates as chairs. I was also sick.
I used to feel pain in my legs and I could not walk properly,” said Shirley. When she came to the UCKG in 2003 she was desperate to find a solution to her fi nancial troubles. “I took part in the chains of prayers and became faithful to God. It was then that my life changed. I requested God to restore my health. Now I am healthy,” said Shirley. Her finances also improved as she was able to pay off her debts and reclaim her bank card from the money lenders. “I later got my driver’s licence and bought a car,” said Shirley. When the Campaign of Israel was introduced, she saw it as an opportunity to achieve great things.
“I took part in the campaign and God blessed me. I bought furniture for my house and I also managed to buy another car, a Toyota Corolla. God also blessed my children,
with good permanent jobs and I have everything I desire. I thank God for blessing my life,” said Shirley.
