Lisa’s great wonders-testimonial: I have never thought of getting back my lover, avoiding divorce & keeping my marriage safe because I was disappointed by many psychics until I heard Dr. Pina on a radio talk show. I contacted him and booked an appointment to read my fortunes and he showed me every detail about my situation using coffee and water. He then made me a prayer and gave me a small bottle of Zam Zam water and I managed to get back with my lost lover and avoid divorce plus I won my court case and got back my financial status, job, lost assets and many other problems. For all your problems, I recommend you to psychic Dr. Pina.

deur Herman du Plessis

Eintlik wou ek al lankal hierdie storie skryf, maar Tert wou nie. “Later” het hy gesê, “Heelwat later. Maar nie nou nie.” Toe bel hy my hier in laasweek en sê ek moet oorkom. Hy wil my alles vertel; van die begin af. Dan kan ek die storie skryf.

“Hierdie stories wat jy so skryf oor my doen en late.......” “Ja,” sê ek, “wat van dit?” “Weet jy hoeveel mense lees dit?” “Nie regtig nie,” sê ek, “maar ek weet van 'n paar.” “Jy weet van die ou wat in die woonstel agter in ons erf bly?” “Ek weet van hom ja. Hy was in die begin vir my maar 'n bietjie dodgy.” “Nou ja, dis oor daardie ou wat ek jou wil vertel.” Man, en Tert sê een oggend; so twee jaar gelede kry hy 'n oproep. En die ou aan die anderkant sê hy wil hom kom sien. “Nou goed, maar waaroor gaan dit?” wil Tert weet. “Nee,” sê die ou, hulle sal praat wanneer hulle bymekaar is. Waar kan hulle ontmoet?” Tert sê die Wimpy in Scottstraat is altyd 'n lekker bymekaarkomplek. Hy sal hom daar kry. Hoe laat? “So tien uur sal reg wees,” sê die ou aan die anderkant. Tert sê hy hou gewoonlik nie van sulke oproepe nie, want gewoonlik is dit een of ander mens wat iets wil verkoop. Maar iets sê vir hom hy moet gaan. “Wat is jou planne vir die dag?” wil Lien later weet. “Nee” sê Tert, “net 'n afspraak met 'n ou tienuur by die Wimpy. Ek weet nie waaroor nie. Sal maar sien as ek daar kom.” Tert sê toe hy by die Wimpy stop, sien hy 'n ou aan die oorkant van die straat. Hy is netjies dog eenvoudig aangetrek en daar is 'n plastieksak in sy hand. Hy maak of hy die ou nie sien nie, en mik vir die Wimpy. Halfpad oor die straat, sien hy die ou kom na hom toe. Tert sê hy maak hom toe klaar vir 'n lekker sopstorie oor 'n job in Port Elizabeth of Ellisras en 'n paar Rand minder in sy beursie. “Is jy Tert?” wil die ou weet toe hulle bymekaar kom. “Eintlik is ek

“Nou laat ek hoor,” sê Tert toe hulle koffie bestel het. “Waaroor wou jy my sien?” “Eintlik soek ek raad.” “Raad?” sê Tert. “Waaroor.” “Jy sien”, begin die ou, “ek was vir agtien jaar 'n alkoholis. Agt jaar daarvan lewe ek al op straat. Ek het my job verloor, my verloofde het my uitgeskop; ek het basies álles verloor. Toe; nou anderdag; staan ek weer daar by die robot by die Village Mall en ek wag en hoop dat iemand my iets sal gee. Baie ietse maak later darem soveel vir 'n brood en 'n bottel. Daar stop toe 'n ander ou langs my en hy kyk na my. 'Kry my oorkant,' sê hy vir my en ek vang 'n draffie na die oorkant van die pad toe. Ek verwag toe darem 'n groterige iets anders sou hy sommer net 'n twee Rand in my hand gestop en weer gery het. Maar inplaas daarvan, toe bid hierdie ou vir my. Ek is al gewoond daaraan. Baie mense bid vir my siel en ander bid weer dat ek die drank sal los of dat die drank my sal los. Daar is al honderde kere vir my siel gebid. En honderde kere het ek al sogenaamde “oorgawes” gemaak. Ek bid maar net agter hulle aan en sorg dat ek hartseer en ernstig lyk. Opgewonde gaan hierdie ouens dan weg. Afgetick in hulle boeke. Sodra hulle klaar gebid en weg is, dan haal ek maar weer die bottel uit. Maar hierdie ou bid toe nie vir my siel of die drank nie. Hy bid dat die Here my van my depressie sal verlos.” Tert sê intussen het die koffie gekom en het hy vir hulle elkeen 'n stewige ontbyt bestel. Die ou eet met oorgawe. Hy sê toe eers besef hy hoe honger die ou oorkant hom is en hoe maklik dit vir hom wat Tert is om dit te kon bestel en ook hoe lanklaas hy regtig honger was. “Ek sê toe vir die ou hy bid verkeerd. Ek is nie depressed nie. Hy het net geglimlag, vir my 'n honderd Rand noot gegee en weggery. Ek het

“Die volgende oggend was my lus steeds weg. Ek het gedink en gedink en gedink. Oor myself; waar ek nou is; waar ek vandaan kom; waarheen ek oppad is. En veral oor God. En jy weet, mense sê wonderwerke gebeur nie meer nie, maar ek glo dat die gebed van die vorige dag my van alkoholisme genees het, want tot vandag toe het ek nog nie weer lus gekry vir 'n dop nie. Nie eers 'n kleintjie nie. Ek het besef dat daar 'n paar dinge is wat drasties sal moet verander in my lewe. Eerstens moet ek ophou bedel en vir my 'n job kry. 'n Vaste job. Maar dis moeilik. Werk is skaars. Veral as jy 'n Kleurling is. Wittes dink jy is rubbish en vir die swartes is jy nie swart genoeg nie. So kom ek toe maar by een van die kerke hier onder in die straat en ek druk die knoppie by die hek. 'n Vrou antwoord. 'Kan ek met die Dominee of die Pastoor of met 'n counsellor praat asseblief,' vra ek. 'Soek jy kos?' vra sy. 'Nee.' 'Soek jy berading,' vra sy. 'Nee, net raad'. 'Man, hier is niemand wat jou kan help nie.' Voordat ek dink wat ek sê, vra ek haar toe: 'maar kan ek dan met Jesus Christus praat, 'seblief?' Vies antwoord sy: 'Moenie laf wees nie. Hy is nie hier nie.' Weet jy, toe ek daar wegstap, toe besef ek sy is reg. Hy is nie daar nie. Dominees en Pastore en kerkmense is te besig vir my en mense soos ek. Hulle dink as hulle so once in a blue moon 'n hit and run uitreik dingetjie doen, dalk 'n kospakkie of klere los, dan het hulle hulle deel gedoen. Niemand stel regtig in ons belang nie. Nie almal van ons is sleg nie. Weet jy, die Here laat Hom nie agter pallessades bêre vir Sondae nie. Hy is nie in mense met pallessades om hulle harte nie.” “Nou hoe op die aarde kom jy toe by my uit,” wil

Tert van die ou weet. “Nee, jy sien, ek het toe maar so 'n paar los joppetjies gedoen. Hier gras gesny en daar 'n kar gewas vir 'n paar Rand. Toe koop ek 'n koerant en iewers in 'n asblik het ek 'n ou GATEWAY van 2011 gekry. Ek wou kyk of ek iewers 'n job kon kry. In die koerant sien ek toe hierdie advertensie,” en hy wys vir Tert 'n flentertjie papier. Dit was 'n advertensie van 'n plek wat sjokolade en vormpies verkoop en dan kan 'n mens jou eie sjokolade maak en verkoop en so 'n inkomste verdien. “Ek het die advertensietjie uitgeskeur en gebêre. Toe blaai ek die Gateway deur en kom op jou Kersfeesstorie af. En ek vra vir 'n paar mense of hulle jou ken. Weet jy hoeveel mense in Harties ken jou? Een man het vir my jou nommer gegee.” “Nou hoekom ek?” vra Tert. “Nee, jy sien, in daardie storie lees ek toe van hoe jy wonder oor Kersfees en van straatkinders en ouens soos ek. En ek dog toe dalk kan jy my help.” “Nou hoe gaan ek jou kan help?” “Al wat ek vra is 'n plekkie om te bly en waarvandaan ek kan werk. En 'n paar Rand om van die vormpies en sjokolade te kan koop sodat ek 'n start kan maak. Ek sal jou alles terug betaal.” “Wat weet jy van bouwerk af?” “Toe ek in Eersterus gebly het, was ek 'n bricklayer. Maar dis agt jaar terug. My hande is nie meer gewoond aan stene nie. Maar ek weet nog van.” “Goed,” sê Tert, “kom saam. Ek dink die sjokolade ding kan werk, maar jy sal beter verdien by my. Ek soek juis iemand wat kan toesig hou by een van die sites.” “En toe tjom?” vra ek toe Tert stilbly. “Dis nou twee jaar vandat my paadjie met daardie man gekruis het,” sê Tert. “Twee ongelooflike jare. Hy bly steeds in die woonstelletjie agter in my erf, en dinge lyk goed. En soms, wanneer ek by die ou met die stompie been daar by die robot, of by die ou tannie daar by Cross Roads verby ry, dan wonder en of daar nie dalk ook 'n vreemdeling by hulle gaan stilhou en bid nie. Dan wonder ek hoekom ek nie so 'n vreemdeling vir iemand kan wees nie. Dan besef ek, ek het nie die guts nie. Ek het eenvoudig net nie die guts om dit te doen nie. Ek lees nou anderdag: “Just because we can't see God, does'nt mean He is not there. For we walk by faith, not by sight.” Maar steeds het ek nie genoeg guts om hierdie ding te doen nie.”

Ek kry my sit in die lapa met 'n groot beker koffie en 'n bak koekies en beskuit voor my. Tert sit aan die ander kant. Ek wag.

Gert, maar my pelle noem my Tert. Van skooldae af.” “Nou ja, ek is...” en die ou noem sy naam, “ek het jou vroeg vanoggend gebel.” “O”, sê Tert, “kom ons gaan drink koffie dan gesels ons.”

dadelik vir my 'n bottel gaan koop en vir die res van die dag onder 'n boom gaan lê. Die volgende oggend was ek nie dadelik lus vir drank nie. Dit gebeur partykeer. Veral as ek die vorige dag lékker gedrink het. Later die oggend het ek agtergekom ek is steeds nie lus vir 'n dop nie en toe dog ek maar dit sal hier teen laat middag kom want dan sal ek begin bewerig word. Die middag en die aand het gekom en steeds was ek nie lus vir 'n dop nie. My lus was skoon weg. Heeltemal. Vir die eerste keer in agtien jaar het ek gaan slaap sonder dat ek 'n dop gehad het.”
