“Now that I am older and wiser, I have decided: To not be casual about the things of The Kingdom. There is an urgency for revival in our nation and we cannot afford to not submit to the King of Kings. This public declaration confirms that I KNOW WHO I AM and I dedicate my life to helping young people discover that they too are fearfully and wonderfully made, set apart, loved, called and chosen as the righteous sons and daughters of the Almighty. I also long to help us all navigate our way through the hopelessness and brokenness that our nation is plagued with.”Tumelo Modiselle continued speaking of her baptism.

“I have decided to partner with Christ in all things. Every milestone through Him, in Him and for His glory. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE HERE!!!! I am forever grateful for everyone that’s held my hand, discipled me and led me back home. @_neomafokwane and @yvonnepunadi, a simple “Thank you” couldn’t quantify my appreciation. I could write paragraphs about how deeply you’ve impacted my walk with Christ and I pray my life is filled with the fruits of the seeds you deposit in me weekly. A special thank you to @rorisangt. The mandate is clear. Thank you sis. 🤍” she finished.
