I battled with low-self esteem

Being tormented by the spirit of darkness for many years turned Nosipho into a loner who battled with low-self-esteem.

"My whole face became itchy and it felt like something was moving around on my head. The itchiness made me so uncomfortable around people to the point where I started isolating myself. My confidence dropped and I fought with the father of my baby. He left me when our child was 18 months old. That made me believe I was bewitched.

In 2001 I was invited to the Universal Church. I spoke to a pastor who assured me that nothing was impossible for God. At the service every morning I started washing my face with holy water. I devoted myself to different chains of prayers because I was unemployed for five years. That same year I secured a job. The itchiness on my face and head stopped. I longer feel anything moving on my face. Two years later the father of my child came back and we got married in 2007. We had another baby. I now run a business where I deliver newspapers and magazines to different supermarkets. I am happier and have peace because I fully depend on God," said Nosipho.
