From Jail Survivor to a Diplomat: Inspiring Story of Charles Miracle Lipenga

I was in my 2nd year at the Malawi Polytechnic college, in the year 2008 when I was selling clothes and electronic gadgets from South Africa and oh boy had I the hunger to succeed in my teeny weeny venture? Well let me take you through it.
01. THE BACKGROUND OF MY ARREST
1. I did not have enough for an air ticket so I used to
depend on buses. (1 and half days travel) 
2. I did not have plenty for a lodge/ hotel so I used to save up by sleeping in friend's dorm rooms at UJ (University of Johannesburg).
3. When in Joburg, I survived on bread and those big bottles of sprite.
4. (Dont try this at home. lol) I used to skip classes to chase a dream in RSA. A dream of having enough to feed & adopt 30 street kids.

02. THE ARREST
One inauspicious day, the inevitable happened when I was in Joburg for stock as usual. I received a blatant abuse of arrest and the use of force & power by the police. Met the local police by the bus depot who interoggated me and my fault was answering back in English. Before I even finished my response I was awakened by a beating from the officers, who apparently were in civilian clothing and the next minute I was arrested for being a foreigner who looked suspicious, shabby and for carrying many computers (without registering with the police). There I was jailed and “STOCK” confiscated at Park station Police precinct, Johannesburg.
03. THE JAIL
We got to the princict and i was processed as a thief (suspect) and then placed in a JAIL cell on demand that all the shops that sold the gadgets should come with proof that i really bought from them.
While in that cell I gathered the courage to sing hymns and offer worship to the God who doesn't DRINK maheu and a miracle happened. The day I was released, I boarded a bus and went back home, well the persistance though, I found myself planning my next trip.
04. THE TESTIMONY
Exactly 9 years later, I find myself under the cover of the diplomatic immunity and top security and police escorts conferred to heads of state and high level officials on official business. Same police that failed to protect me years ago are treating me as a national treasure, well I am still a foreigner though. And with the same dream, I have now offered a helping hand to more than 51 000 people. THIS GOD!!!
Now selected as a diplomatic member of The United Nations, The African union, The Commonwealth and The Obama Foundation. You also can rewrite YOUR STORY
05. WHAT IS YOUR STORY OF HUMBLE BEGINNINGS?
What excuse do you keep giving yourself? What challenges are you faced with today? Work like crazy & let people laugh at you today, they will not laugh for long.
Don’t wish things were easy. Believe Our God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above what you could ever ask or think of?
LET'S PRAY THAT YOU GROW ABOVE THE CHALLENGES. BELIEVE, WORK ON YOUR DREAMS TODAY. GOD IS MIRACULOUS NOT A MAGICIAN.
