Liesl Alexander Testimony
I was an atheist, brought up
in a "haunted house" filled with fear.
reared with an alcoholic mother, a very distant angry
father, and an alcoholic grandfather. A blind
grandmother and a neurotic great aunt aided in rounding
out this dysfunctional family along with a twin sister
and other siblings at least 12 years our senior.
After leaving home for school,
I was told my boyfriend (age 13) had committed suicide.
This was when I began to dwell on death...what did it
mean?...what is it?..
rest of my schooling seemed to be a waste of
time...because I could not think of work, only of death.
Because of surgery, I had to
leave school early. For one year I went home to live
with a drunken mother whom I hated in a fear-filled
household and, in the end, decided to go into nursing.
But I continually pondered
death....but received no answers...It was at this time
that I got involved in the occult. So things went
downhill from there.
I just wanted to die...I seemed to be a black hole with
no way of escape!
an overdose of drugs stolen from the hospital ward, cut
arteries in my wrists and waved goodby to the world, but
I awoke in pain and with stitches! Yet I was not truly
sure if I was really alive.
placed me in a room about 6x4 and I stayed there for
I was given 36 plus drugs a
day, and strapped in a straight jacket on occasions. No
window, no visitors, no furniture. Just a mattress on
the floor. No clothes on me either!...where was I? I did
not know it then, but I was in a padded cell!!
After 17 months they moved me
for short periods, to have treatments. The treatments
did not work. I hated life, feared everything, felt
alone. There was no God...
doctors advised therapy which meant going outside the
grounds into a high security wing of a psychiatric
hospital... In other words, an asylum.
On one occasion I managed to
escape but was captured and returned. The consultant
said to me, "Liesl! Stop running away, you are here for
life, the quicker you accept this the easier for us and
the easier for you. This is now your home for life."
I just wanted to die.
On one occasion I escaped and
got into the black market drug scene and became an
addict..My plan was to die from all these drugs.
on, I escaped once again but still only wanted to die.
On the way went into a hall, I heard a man say,
"God can do anything,
absolutely anything! He can heal the sick, heal the
mentally sick and set the drug addict free!"
*God* bit made me angry...then I heard a lady say,
"Jesus loves you! He knows what a mess you are in, He
really cares." Now a new 'record' was in my mind.
I returned to the hospital.
Eventually, there were many escape attempts; some
succeeded, and some failed.
One day some Christian
visitors came to see me in hospital.. they laid hands on
me and I was healed....It was after that that I accepted
Jesus into my life...accepting Him as Lord and
Savior...Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and
These are not mere words but
reality: 'In My name they will drive
out demons' (Mark 16:17)
don't accept this but Jesus would never tell us to do
that if demons do not exist! Jesus drove the demons from
me, so I know it is true!! Jesus is the Victor. We have
all power in Jesus and He does heal the sick today and
set the captives free. He is wanting His people to
believe His words.
are his people. You are the ones He calls. He
demonstrates his power with the lost and the sick and
the bound. Praise Him for the faith of those who came
into my cell and simply asked Jesus to touch this girl's
