Retha McPherson Shares her Story With Port Elizabeth Known
by many as one of South Africa’s most beautiful and charismatic
individuals, former Mrs. South Africa Retha McPherson was struck by
devastation in 2004 when Retha, her husband and two sons were involved
in a motor accident which left her eldest son Aldo with severe brain
injuries. Facing the difficult battle of keeping faith and finding the
will to push on during one of the darkest times in her and her family’s
lives, Retha found herself on a journey of endurance – a journey
between a mother and God.

During her reign as Mrs. South Africa in 2004, Retha McPherson and her
family were returning from one of the public speaking events Rita
conducted in the Free State when her and her family’s life shattered
into a million pieces. The entire McPherson family was involved in a
terrible motor car accident. Retha, her husband Tinus and her youngest
son Josh walked away with little or no injuries, but her eldest son
Aldo felt the full brunt of the impact. He was thrown from the vehicle
and found unconscious on the other side of the highway. This was the

Aldo was on life support for a long time after the accident, and during
that time Retha was lifted into a new level of walking by faith and not
by sight. Although Aldo sustained severe brain injuries as a result of
the accident, Retha testifies: “God is good! He has awakened my Sprit
to Him and I have come to know Him as a holy God who wants my life, not
only my heart.”

After a few weeks in a coma, Aldo finally woke up. While he was in a
coma, he had a supernatural experience where he went to heaven, saw
God, the angels, Moses and Abraham. Aldo came back with one message:
“Jesus is alive!” Due to the seriousness of his injuries to his head
Aldo was not able to speak for a long time and related his miraculous
journey by writing letters lead by the Holy Spirit – which he is still
doing today.

After these series of events their lives were forever changed. Retha
and Aldo co-authored a book titled “A Message from God” which relates
their miracle story in detail. Retha has since retired from her
mainstream job and is now busy with full-time ministry. She travels
around the country and the world spreading this simple truth “Jesus is
