Bazinikela Ngokuzithandela—ETjingalanga Ye-Afrika

Bazinikela Ngokuzithandela—ETjingalanga Ye-Afrika

NJENGOMBANA akhulela emphakathini otlhagako eCôte d’Ivoire, uPascal wakufuna khulu ukuphila okungcono. Nekasesembethi maguduva osafundako, wazibuza, ‘Ngingalifumanaphi ithuba lokuba yikutani kezemidlalo ngibe nayinjinga?’ Nekaseminyakeni yama-20, waphetha ngokuthi eYurobhu kula aya khona. Njengombana bekanganazo iincwadi zokukhamba, kwafuze angene eYurobhu ngokungasisemthethweni.

Ngo-1998, nekana-27, uPascal wathoma ikhambo lakhe. Weqa umkhawulo wangena eGhana, warabhula iTogo wayokuphumela eBenin, ekugcineni wafika edorobheni leBirni Nkonni eNiger. Nje-ke khona besekazokuhlangana neembila zithutha. Nekazakuya etlhagwini, bekufuze agove itrogo, ayokudlula eRhalawumbeni leSahara. Bekuzakuthi nekafika eMedithera, akhwele isikepe esiya eYurobhu. Ngilokho ebekakuhlelile—kodwana wakhandelwa zizinto ezimbili ezenzeka eNiger.

Kokuthoma, waphelelwa yimali. Kwesibili, wahlangana noNoé oliphayona, owathoma ukumfundela iBhayibheli. Akufundako kwamthinta khulu kangangobana wabe watjhentjha nombonwakhe ngokuphila.

Uthi, “Ngithola okungcono khulu ekuphileni!”

UKUFUMANA OKUNGEZIWEKO EKUPHILENI—E-AFRIKA

U-Anne-Rakel

NjengoPascal, inengi labantu lilemukile bona nelizakwaneliseka epilweni, kufuze lidzimelele ekufuneni izinto ezingokomoya. Nebazakufikelela iminqopho enjalo, abanye batjhiye iYurobhu bafudukela e-Afrika bonyana bakhonze eendaweni lapho kunetlhogeko ekulu yabarhuweleli bomBuso. Eqinisweni, pheze aboFakazi abama-65 abavela eYurobhu—abahlangana kweminyaka eli-17 nema-70—bafudukela la umsebenzi wokutjhumayela wande khona, eenarheni zeTjingalanga ye-Afrika eBenin, eBurkina Faso, eNiger, neTogo. * Khuyini eyabatjhukumisela bona benze itjhentjho elikhulu kangaka, begodu waba yini umphumela walokho?

Bebahlala bakhuluma kamnandi ngepilo yeenthunywa zevangeli kangangobana ngafuna ukuphila okunjalo.” Pheze eminyakeni eli-15 eyadlulako, u-Anne-Rakel gade asanduk’uhlanganisa iminyaka ema-20, nakazakufudukela eTogo lapho akhonza khona ebandleni lelimi lezandla. Ukufuduka kwakhe kwabakhuthaza njani abanye? Uthi: “Ngokukhamba kwesikhathi udadwethu omncani nomnakwethu bangilandela eTogo.”

U-Albert-Fayette no-Aurele

U-Aurele, umzalwana otjhadileko oneminyaka ema-70 ovela eFrance, uthi: “Eminyakeni emihlanu edlulileko, nangithatha umhlalaphasi, bekufuze ngikhethe hlangana nokuphila okuthulileko eFrance bese ngilindele iPharadesi lifike, namtjhana ngithathe amagadango wokwandisa ikonzwami.” U-Aurele wakhetha ukwandisa ikonzwakhe. Pheze eminyakeni emithathu edlulileko, yena nomkakhe, u-Albert-Fayette, bafudukela eBenin. U-Aurele uthi, “Ukuzinikela kwethu bona sikhonze uJehova la yinto ehle khulu ekhe sayenza.” Nakaragako, “umphumela waba kukuthi, iingcenye zesimethu ezimagega nelwandle zingenza ngizibone ngisePharadesi.”

Eminyakeni eli-16 eyadlulako, uClodomir nomkakhe uLysianne, bafuduka eFrance baya eBenin. Ekuthomeni, bebawukhumbula khulu umndeni nabangani babo beFrance, begodu isibilesi besinevalo lokuthi singabhalelwa kujayelana nepilwaso etja. Nanyana kunjalo, belingekho ibanga lokusaba. Baba nethabo elikhulu. UClodomir uthi, “Nasesibala ngokwesilinganiso, eminyakeni eli-16 le, saba nelungelo lokusiza umuntu ngamunye ngomnyaka bona amukele iqiniso.”

ULysiane noClodomir nabanye babantu ababasiza bafunda iqiniso

UJohanna noSébastien

USébastien noJohanna, isibili esitjhadileko esivela eFrance, safudukela eBenin ngo-2010. USébastien uthi, “Kunomsebenzi omnengi ebandleni.

 UKUBONA NOKUHLULA IINTJHIJILO

UBenjamin

Ngiziphi iintjhijilo abanye “abakhonza lapho kunetlhogeko ekulu khona” abaqalana nazo? UBenjamin, oneminyaka ema-33, mnakwabo laka-Anne-Rakel. Ngo-2000 eDenmark, wahlangana nesithunywa sevangeli ebesikhonza  eTogo. UBenjamin uyakhumbula: “Nengitjela isithunywa sevangeli bona ngifuna ukuphayona, sathi: ‘Bewazi na, ukuthi ungakghona ukuphayona eTogo.’” UBenjamin wacabanga ngalokho. Uthi: “Bengingakayihlanganisi iminyaka ema-20 ngesikhatheso, kodwana abodadwethu ababili besele bakhonza eTogo. Lokho kwangenzela ubulula bokuya lapho.” Wafuduka-ke. Nanyana kunjalo bekusese nesinye isitjhijilo. UBenjamin uyanaba: “Bengingazi nalinye ibizo lesiFrench. Iinyanga ezisithandathu zokuthoma bezibudisi ngombana bengingakghoni ukucoca.” Nokho, ngokukhamba kwesikhathi wenza ituthuko. Kwanje uBenjamin ukhonza eBethel yeBenin, udiliva iincwadi begodu usiza emnyangweni wezamakhophyutha.

UMarie-Agnès noMichel

U-Eric noKaty, okukhulunywe ngabo ngaphambilini, bakhonza esimini yabantu abakhuluma amalimi wakwezinye iinarha eFrance ngaphambi kobana bafudukele eBenin. Gade ihluke ngani-ke indawo le eseTjingalanga ne-Afrika? UKaty uthi: “Gade kungasilula ukufumana indawo efaneleko yokuhlala. Iinyanga ezinengi besihlala ngendlini enganagezi namanzi wepompi.” U-Eric uyangezelela: “Emphakathini wakhona bebasirasela ngombhino ubusuku boke. Bekufuze ubekezelele izinto ezifana nalezi begodu uzivumelanise nobujamo.” Bobabili bayavuma: “Ithabo lokukhonza esimini engakhenge kutjhunyayelwe kiyo lidlula nanyana ngibuphi ubudisi.”

UMichel noMarie-Agnès, isibili esitjhadileko esivela eFrance esiseminyakenaso yama-50, safudukela eBenin pheze iminyaka emihlanu edlulileko. Bazizwa batshwenyekile. UMichel uthi: “Abanye bamadanisa ukufuduka kwethu nomuntu oqaqada phezu kwentambo asunduza ingolovana! Bekungakuthusa lokho nengabe awazi bona umuntu oqaqada phezu kwentambo loyo bekunguJehova. Yeke, safuduka-ke ngombana uJehova bekasisekela.”
