Thereupon all three of us got down upon our knees. Katrina then prayed a passionate prayer, in which she thanked the Lord that He had now after all the years sent His messenger to her — in order to show her too the way to Heaven. Kerneels then recited first Psalm 23 and then the Our Father and, after a great battle, confessed faith in the Lord. After that I myself thanked God for the wonderful privilege of kneeling with Cornelius’s parents at the foot of the cross of Jesus.
All three of us then went to the little farm cottage of the Claassens, where they gave me a photograph of Cornelius which I could use in my new book, as Cornelius himself had told me to do. I then took a photograph of the couple, together with their daughter (Cornelius’s sister) — and encouraged the family to read the Bible every day.
