The True Story of a Man and the Miracles that are Changing Africa
by Surprise Sithole & David Wimbish
Publisher:Chosen imprint of Baker Pub from Lion
Published:23 March 2012
Pastor Surprise is a director of Rolland and Heidi Baker’s Iris Ministries, but his adventures with God began at the age of fifteen when an audible supernatural voice called him urgently to leave the Mozambique hut of his witch-doctor parents. It was the beginning of a ministry conducted against a backdrop of extreme poverty few Western people could comprehend, and now covers many African Countries and reaches out into Europe and America. His story is one of pure indomitable faith and very many wonderful miracles of Jesus juxtaposed against civil wars spawning some of the worst atrocities dreamt up by human beings. Indeed miracles are everyday occurrences for Surprise and his family and he believes the lack of them in the West is due to our ‘sophisticated’ questioning of everything we hear, including God’s Word, thus displeasing Him. ‘When simple people accept and believe what the Bible says without question, God blesses them,’ he says. ‘God reveals His mysteries to the simple-hearted.’ This is a book full of the joy of the Lord, showing how evangelism can be, and indeed is wherever Jesus takes this remarkably anointed servant of His.
