And all the glory belongs to God alone!

If you believe that you serve a sovereign God, then logic says we need to accept every situation, challenge, reward or dark pit as being in the knowledge of that God. It feels risky to stand in that faith in your Creator when there is not a single ray of hope. But I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, that my life, with all it’s deep and dark realities, stands to prove that my Savior lives, and that our God is a gracious God. It’s not possible to look at my life and say there is no God.

From a life of bliss with a wonderful marriage to a beautiful woman and awesome son, to a cold, lonely prison cell over 6 000 Km from home is where I eventually landed when I chose to chase the physical pleasures of this world that I had always secretly admired as a child

The hidden truths of a life in a Thai prison became my daily reality as I faced a 21 year sentence with no support of help from family or friends.
It is the reality of God’s grace – something that I have only just begun to understand – that I have to tell about; about the reality of His supernatural provision, protection, leading and deliverance; about His love for the lowest sinner; about God as my constant Companion and Friend despite my life as a mere assembly of fleshly elements.

Mine is the testimony of a life from powder to power. Twice pardoned – Once by a king of the land and once by the King of all Kings.

And all the glory belongs to God alone.

The Miracle of Khayelitsha

Hansie is an ultra-marathoner and believes that “everyone can run a marathon”. If you can run a marathon, you can tackle (almost) any problem in life.

Serving as a retirement advisor to Directors of listed companies in South Africa helped him to see the difference between the rich and the poor clearly when he embarked to live in Khayelitsha, a so called township area in South Africa from January 2011 for about 18 months. He and wife Anita were able to touch the lives of many indviduals.

His passion is to build wealth responsibly ( and to eradicate poverty at the same time) and he uses his knowledge of finance, business and network marketing to inspire others to transform the world.

“The Miracle of Khayelitsha” is an inspiring book about the miracle of the transformation of Khayelitsha.
Looking back from the year 2119 it is easy to marvel at the changes. It is a book of hope for South Africa, Africa and the world. The author who lived in Khayelitsha explains the dream of the miracle and what happened in the community to cause this. Shebeens disappear and police stations close for weekends. Crime is non-existent. The community thrives with many success stories. The churches in Khayelitsha formed a united front and a massive church structure was built that was used by many smaller churches.
Of course, this was not possible, but for God. He made the changes possible through the lives of people everywhere. The author explains how this happened amongst the people. Prayer and work caused the big change. The different Christians and leaders were led to understand their own differences in terms of how they were created. This opened understanding of and support for each other. Prayer led to God to transform the people of Khayelitsha
The corporations played a big role in providing some pastoral roles and positions for qualified people. That helped the pastors to lead their congregants to gainful employment or successful businesses.
The book is not fully written yet. You or your church or organisation or company or government department could feature in this book as the miracle unfolds over the next 50 to 100 years.
The book is very valuable for intercessors as many of the dreams must be prayed into existence.
May you be blessed by the book and may you bless the world by your participation in the projects not only in Khayelitsha but in the rest of the World.
