- Ghana: "I am a young man of 28 years and I have been in occultism for almost 14 years, until I met Jesus Christ who set me free. My life has being ruined with demonic tortures and pains. ... I have no means to own a Bible than to request you humbly in Jesus Christ name. I promise when I received shall put it into good uses."
