Quick Overview:

Francinah Baloyi was 16 when she started training as a sangoma, one through whom the spirits speak. At 23, Christ brought her to repentance and called her to proclaim him. Today, she is a powerful preacher whose story shows that conversion must affect every aspect of our life and challenges the syncretism that is threatening the church in Africa.

In Africa, Christianity is sometimes rejected as a "white" religion or combined with elements of African Traditional Religion. The story of Francinah Baloyi shows that neither of these attitudes is correct. Francinah was born into a family of traditional healers who were strongly opposed to Christianity, and in time she herself became a sangoma. But over the years Jesus revealed himself to her in visions. He delivered her from the power of ancestral spirits, convicted her of the sin of having had four abortions, and commissioned her to preach. In a radical display of obedience, she burned all the items associated with her work as a sangoma and uprooted the family altar. And she began to preach wherever she found herself.

God also led her to wise church leaders and counselors, who helped her to go to Bible school and lay a biblical foundation for her ministry. Today, she is the leader of a thriving church, with a ministry to others who are still in bondage to ancestral spirits. She is now a sought-after conference speaker and evangelist both nationally and internationally. Her public ministry is marked by her Spirit-filled authenticity and simplicity.

Her story has wider resonance in a time when there is a resurgence of traditional religions and when abortion is becoming increasingly common in South Africa.
