TIMOTHY PAUL POTGIETER:

I am as I am today for the glory of God!

I began to drink and smoke weed at 14 years of age and at 18 it escalated to smoking and snorting crystal meth, crack and heroin.
At the same time I was addicted to results in my professional career and I would use a series of "uppers" to keep myself going,
as long as I could, in order to get the result I was obsessed with. I was chasing perfection with no regard for my mental and physical
health. I was completely disillusioned. I never believed I had a problem until I began to lose my mind...

You see, my entire adult life I have been obsessed with success and I have chased it as long as I can remember BUT all for the wrong reasons.I also had absolutely no regard for other people's well being and for me they were just objects in the way. They were
a threat to what I wanted. I ended up having a series of strokes and was committed for psychosis (mental illness) I should be dead.

Thank God I entered RAEL at the age of 28. Anthony Hall's program broke me down completely and I was forced to see that I was
the only threat to my well being.That I had been completely self obsessed and that because of this I had lost touch with God and lost respect for all that he had created...

Today I live to serve those that God puts before me. I live only by the grace of Christ almighty. If it were not for Mr Hall, AD, Angus and
the RAEL team I would not have been able to do all the work that I have today. I have helped many and the Lord and I are side by side...

Thank you Mr Anthony Hall. God bless the still suffering addict and babies born into active addiction.




ANGUS MALGAS:

Angus started his program of recovery over 16 months ago at the RAEL Farm. In this time Angus studied and became a qualified carer. He is fully employed by Mr Anthony David Hall taking care of Mrs Hall senior who loves Angus to bits. 

Thank you Dr Riana Du Toit for your special care and interest in Angus. Watching Angus change was rewarding. Pictured with his Dad Pastor Kearney Malgas (left) and Mrs Hall senior (right). #RAELREHAB




GRAEME VAN RENSBURG:

"I've walked a road of destruction, been to dark places that I never knew existed, ending up homeless and what people call scum of the earth, "The lowest of the low" I've pushed trollies and dug in rubbish bins for pure survival. I celebrate nearly 6 years of a new sober life, there's many to thank I don't want to leave anyone out. 

SO much has changed and happened and I've over this time learnt that there are people that will STAND by you and people that have LOST ALL sense of humanity. Thank you to my whole family for EVERYTHING. My girlfriend Lindsay, you have blessed me with priceless love, support and a beautiful daughter. Kurt Schüler thank you for taking my nonsense in my growing process and never 
giving up on me, you've inspired and motivated me.

Anthony David Hall if there are words to express my gratitude I don't have them. You sir, have selflessly grown and groomed me in ways no words can describe. I'm speechless for the road you have walked with me, the ways you have supported, carried, and stood by me in ALL kinds of ways UNCONDITIONALLY is indescribable. You Mr Hall have been right by my side every step of the way 
of my transformation and I'm so truley grateful for humam beings like you sir.

People like you are very far and few to find sir. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. 6 years later." - Graeme Van Rensburg #RAELREHAB

ALBERT (JUNIOR):

Albert (Junior) was taken in and fully sponsored by Anthony Hall head 
and founder of the RAEL Organization. According to our Dr Riana Du Toit 
Junior was days, maybe hours away from death. 

We had our struggles Junior but in the bigger scheme of things your very 
life was saved by these 2 God sent people, when there was not a soul on 
the planet that would give you a chance to recover, but these 2 people 
invested in your life & helped you change to the healthy person you are. 

Never forget where you come from #RAELREHAB

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.
