Centre House Father
Clifford de Haast
“After ten years of active substance abuse my parents offered me a final life line. In August 2005 I checked in at Noupoort Christian Care Centre, I was a broken person with no identity, self-worth or any drive to continue with this life. During our first Sunday Church service I became born again and I cannot express how much Jesus Christ changed my life. He healed me from my hurts, habits and hang ups. 2 Cor 5:17 - In Christ we are new Creations, old things have passed new things have come.
The Foundation : Jesus Christ, Daily Routine, Discipline, Behaviour Modification and other aspects of the program with all its challenges was exactly what I needed to push me in the right direction.
