These countries include Africa (Zambia, Mozambique, DRC, Malawi, Cameroon etc.), the USA, Brazil, Ukraine and Europe (UK, Denmark, France, Germany and Switzerland).

Paul matriculated at Paul Roos Gymnasium in Stellenbosch (Western Cape) in 1978 and attained a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture (Animal Science) in 1984 at the University of Pretoria.

He still consults and advises in business and serves in an advisory and board position as director for several entities in fields such as agriculture, mining, banking, mentoring and Christian ministries.

Annelie is a legal consultant from Klerksdorp in South Africa. She always had an inherent sense of right and wrong and was therefore drawn to the legal profession.

When that season came to an end, she started a business as a legal consultant. She also chairs labour disputes as a part-time commissioner in the CCMA and Bargaining Councils. As a result of her work, God has given her a heart for the South African government and country.

For Annelie, it remains a humbling experience to speak His Word and Life into people and nations through the God Said series and many prayer platforms.
