At the age of only fifteen years old, after falling victim to many years of rejection, Stephan Botha found himself without an identity. He became bound by substance abuse and a lifestyle of fornication, desperately trying to fill the void in his heart.
When Stephan was nineteen years old, he encountered God in the most incredible way, whilst attending a revival meeting. He was instantly set free, delivered from many years of bondage and slavery. Immediately responding to the call of God on his life, Stephan began ministering to all those he came in contact with, seeing the blind healed from his first time praying for the sick.
God supernaturally connected Stephan with Prophet Leon du Preez, who since became his spiritual father.
