Sacked bus driver vows to carry on praying … this time in a taxi
Jerome Rose, sacked last month for repeatedly leading passengers in prayer on his Cape Town bus, may soon be back on the road in a taxi provided by his church.
And, according to this report, he vowed that:
When I start driving, I will definitely start every trip the right way – with a prayer.
The father of five, who intends appealing against his dismissal, said he has received a number of job offers, including one from Intercape, known to promote Christianity on their buses.
I have put all of the offers on hold while I deal with the appeal … When I do a job, I do it right. The proceedings in the background could cut into my work time and I don’t want that.
But while he is unable to depend on a fixed monthly income, supports have dug deep to assist the Roses.
I have been given donations so far totalling about R7000 (£310). Just this past weekend, a church in Mitchells Plain handed over R3500 to me. Wow – God’s grace is so amazing.
He is enjoying spending time with his wife and children at their Pniel home after his job forced him to relocate to Atlantis.
I am blessed and happy to be surrounded by them. What must happen will happen if it’s the Lord’s will. God is in control, and I trust Him to guide me. Where he leads, I will follow.
