The Naked Beggar: Was This Boy a Witch?

Starving and often without clothes to wear, Nelson knocked on the doors of strangers at night to beg for food. Was his strange behavior caused by witchcraft? Read Transcript


Reporter: WHEN NELSON'S

PARENTS DIED, HE WAS FORCED

TO LIVE ON THE STREETS AND

BEG FOR FOOD.

SOMETIMES I HAD NO

CLOTHES TO WEAR.

I JUST WALKED NAKED IN THE

STREET.

AT NIGHT I GOT SO HUNGRY, I

WOULD KNOCK ON PEOPLE'S

DOORS AND BEG THEM TO FEED

ME SOMETHING.

Reporter: NELSON WAS

STARVING, BUT BECAUSE OF HIS

STRANGE BEHAVIOR, PEOPLE IN

THE VILLAGE ACCUSED HIM OF

BEING A WITCH.

I REALLY DIDN'T LIKE THE

WAY PEOPLE TREATED ME.

IT MADE ME SAD.

Reporter: THEN ONE DAY

HE HEARD A PASTOR PREACHING

ON A STREET CORNER.

HE BEGGED HIM FOR SOMETHING

TO EAT.

THE PASTOR TOOK HIM TO A

CHILDREN'S HOME, SUPPORTED

BY "ORPHANS' PROMISE." HERE

NELSON FOUND A HOME.

I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED,

FOOD TO EAT, A PLACE TO

SLEEP, AND EVEN CLOTHES TO

WEAR.

Reporter: NELSON IS

STUDYING HARD IN SCHOOL.

AND IN HIS SPARE TIME, HE

LIKES TO READ THE BIBLE.

THE CHILDREN HERE ARE HAPPY

AND WELL-CARED FOR.

MOST OF THEM WERE FOUND

LIVING IN THE STREETS,

PRACTICALLY STARVING.

SOME OF THEM MIGHT NOT EVEN

BE ALIVE TODAY IF NOT FOR

THE HELP OF "ORPHANS' PROMISE."

BUT ALL OF THE KIDS WE

TALKED TO SAID AT NIGHT,

WHEN THEY PRAY, THEY THANK

GOD FOR THE PEOPLE THAT HELP

SUPPORT THEM.

NOW MY LIFE IS VERY

GOOD.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME.

I PRAY THAT GOD WILL BLESS

YOU.
