"Get out of the house. If you do not leave, you will die."
The command was so loud and urgent that the earth beneath me seemed to tremble. Yet my sleep-filled eyes could see no one talking. I was 15 years old, groggy, and had never heard of Jesus Christ. I didn't know where I would go or what would happen. Walking out into the African air that night, I only knew I must obey.
I can think of no earthly reason why God should have intervened in my life in such a dramatic way all those years ago. I just know He did--and still does.
Born into a long line of witch doctors, Surprise Sithole ("Sit-holy") was destined for a life of fear, oppression and poverty in the African jungles. But God had other plans. What began that night in a thatch and mud hut more than 25 years ago was an adventure of faith and miracles. From signs and wonders to supernatural deliverance to divine revivals that have overtaken countries, Surprise has followed wherever God has led, even into the darkest, most unreached places.
This is his amazing true story.
