Theki, the Social worker at Tshepo, tells us about a man which came into Tshepo to wash his face. He sat down as he didn’t know who to speak to. Theki walked past, and started talking to him.
He has been a drug addict since he was 15 and had recently run away from rehab. He lived on the streets for a week, without food. He says he managed, because the drugs made him forget about his problems, food and his life.
Theki managed to get in contact with his mother and counselled the family. He was reunited with his mother and the family decided to put him in rehabilitation in another city.
A brief look into this young man’s life and it seems almost seems hopeless, but we pray for his recovery.
God says “My gift of undeserved grace is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak.” (2 Corintians 12:9 – Contemporary English Version).
