KURT SCHULER:

Kurt came to RAEL Sober City just over a year ago to start his 
recovery. I have known Kurt for many years and he has walked
a long road in active Addiction. Kurt had burned all bridges. 

I decided to take him in again, The pic on the left was taken 
just before he arrived on the Farm addicted to Heroin

This man has grown, shown leadership qualities and today
he holds a senior position at RAEL Sober City. #RAEL




GRAEME VAN RENSBURG:

RAEL Sober Living member Graeme Van Rensburg came into RAEL almost 
4 and a half years ago. He was broken by HEROIN. He went to the streets 
after being involved with Gangsterism and then Addiction took hold. 

He is now a Qualified Panel-beater, has bought himself a motor vehicle, 
still lives on the RAEL Farm and works in the town. He is an amazing 
testimony to Gods Grace and mercy. This young story must be shared 
to give a world hope that is being destroyed by Drugs and Alcohol. 

We love you young man and proud of you. #RAEL #AmazingGrace

years ago to start his recovery to a new life free from Drugs. The Man 
is a gentle giant with a wicked sense of humour. He came to the farm on

He left and great things started happening in his life. He married his 
sweetheart Toska who stood by him every inch of the way during his stay 
on the farm.They've had 2 little babas to add to their family and has 
completely turned his life around. We keep in regular contact and he 
always had amazing support from his Parents and family.

STIAN MOSTERT:

A MIRACLE TO SHARE! Stian Mostert came to RAEL over 7 years ago 
to start his recovery. He had used Drugs till it broke him completely. 
RAEL was founded in 2007 but only started RAEL Sober City in 2011.

Stiaan started to recover and turned out to be a man who can do 
anything with his hands. Wonderful young man was developing before 
us and a man with the hardest work ethic I have met. 

His lovely helpful parents Mossie and Ronel did so much for us, 
we were new to Worcester and this family would always help us in 
every way, Their kindness will never be forgotten by us. Stian today 
over 7 years later is married with children and completely drug free. 

We are so proud of him and his lovely wife Marluscha, they also had 
their wedding on the RAEL farm, we wish you long life. God Bless you 
as living proof that no matter how destroyed you were anyone can change.

RIAAN VAN ROOYEN:

Riaan van Rooyen came to start his recovery at RAEL in 2015. 

He was lost and his life after having a top job in the corporate 
world was destroyed by Drugs. I saw this mans character from the 
day he came in as it was the same day my beloved dog Tyson died. 

Riaan worked hard on his recovery and with the support of loved 
ones he was determined to change. He is one of the kindest most 
beautiful souls one can meet. His manners and respect levels are 
something to be admired. He accomplished all he needed to do, 
today Managers a big chain of stores and reunited with family. 

It was a absolute pleasure to see this man grow into where he 
is today. Riaan keep doing the next right thing and we all very 
proud of you. Your legacy and artistic talents are on the farm 
for all to see including the beautiful Memorial you did for 
Tyson and the Eagle Mosaic at our entrance. God Bless you.

 




JAN DESTROO:

MOTHERS LOVE...
 
Jan Francois Destroo found his recovery on the RAEL Farm and is 
over 3 years Sober is the classic story of a Mom putting in tough 
love. His mom Malena had to decide to either watch her son die 
from drugs or do the ultimate tough love which is a book on its 
own. She stood by him all the way as people had written him off. 

He came to us torn by Drugs and by Gods Grace he slowly found a 
new life. A stunning young man and beautiful Mom and family.

Today Jan has a wonderful job with Beyers Transport and who is still 
a friend of RAEL. Jan has grown into a fine man free from the evil 
of Drugs. Thanks Mom and brother Steyn for your stance and prayers 
in saving this young mans life. Shared to give all struggling HOPE.
