Mbuso’s* Life Story

I grew up with my grandmother in Durban* as my mother passed away when I was 3 years old.

Over the years, when I saw other children with their mothers, I had that feeling of ‘why me out of all people’.

I started to become sad inside and after some time I began using drugs.

My drug use continued for 15 years.

Drugs took me to many bad places, but they never could help me with the feeling I felt inside of me.

In December 2018 I arrived at CYPSA. That was when God started to work in my life and I could finally let go of the grudge that I carried because of growing up without a mother.

After speaking with the counsellors and confessing my sin I was set free, free indeed!

I now work in a Coffee Shop as a waiter.
