“I didn’t have a phone with me at that period, I will go up to the mountain top praying and at one of those times I got tired and started hearing voices and the one that was clear to me at the time was the one that told me to jump off the cliff in the middle of the night, I moved closer and closer to the cliff, I thought I was going to jump but there was something holding me back….I already stretched out my arms to jump, but I then felt a barricade which naturally wasn’t there…these were some of the encounters that made me know it was time”.
