the miraculous story behind Petclix...
Twenty-five years ago Mala came home from high school in South Africa to a tragic accident that caused her mom to become clinically brain dead. To save Mala's mother's life, the SA doctors put the monther on a life support machine. Mala’s brother and her Hindu priest father cried and prayed for their Hindu gods’ to help. Her mom’s condition didn’t change. Their Hindu gods were silent. A few days later her condition didn’t improve and the South African doctors told the family they would be taking Mala’s mom off life support. Hours before the life support machine was turned off three men approached the hospital room. They said they were Christians and asked if they could pray over their mom.
Out of desperation, to save their mother’s life, the family agreed. The three men laid hands on Mala’s mom and prayed in the name of Jesus. Sixty seconds after the men left the room Mala’s mom awoke. The doctors were shocked that she didn't have brain damage. Doctors wrote the words “Miracle" as the cure on her medical file. Mala’s entire family gave their lives to Christ a few weeks later. Mala went on to attend Oral Roberts University(ORU). After graduating from ORU, Mala served on an African missionary ship.
Mala’s mom received a vision from God to send her only daughter to America. Shortly after the vision, Mala moved to America. In August 2004, Mala went on a date with Paul Brough, a man she met on an online dating website. On their first date, Paul told Mala the following... “ I have no illnesses, no responsibilities, and complete financial freedom. I’m a very happy atheist for the last twenty years. I live on a paradise Caribbean island where prostitution is legal and publicly accepted. I’m about to combine my love of money and women into a porn production company. I’m living the perfect life absent of gods and deities.” At the end of the date, Paul handed Mala his porn production business card.
Mala told her coworkers about her date with Paul. They said, “You’ve met the devil himself. If you continue to talk to Paul, we’ll stop being your friend.” Mala ignored their advice because God gave Mala a vision that Paul would be the Christian husband she’s been praying for. By faith, Mala continued to date Paul. Mala lost her job a few months later. Paul offered to rent a room in his house where Paul’s ex-girlfriend was still living in. Mala moved in to reduce her monthly expenses.
Unbeknown to Mala, Paul would listen through the walls at night while Mala prayed. For six months, Paul tracked her prayers in Microsoft Excel. He noticed that 100% of her prayers came true. Still, an atheist, Paul’s curiosity and statistics caused him to ask Mala to take him to her church. Mala denied Paul’s church request several times. Finally, Mala agreed to take Paul to church. After Paul’s first church visit, he told Mala he felt something warm inside his body. Paul was excited to go back to church again. He was still a staunch atheist. On his fourth church visit, Paul approached the senior pastor after service was over.
Something inside Paul caused Paul to approach the senior pastor to offer the church thousands of dollars of free IT training. The pastor said to Paul, “God wants me to tell you something.” The Pastor asked if they could lay hands on him. Paul wanted to say no, but something nudged him to say Yes. As soon as the Pastor laid hands on Paul, Paul immediately began to cry and shake. The pastor said, “You’ll be the greatest evangelist the world has ever seen.”
Paul didn’t know what those words meant. Paul walked away shaking and crying. His body was shaking so hard he couldn't open the car door, Mala drove home. . Shaking and crying in the passenger seat, Paul asked Mala what was happening to him? Mala said, “That’s the power of the Holy Spirit”. Paul shook for seven hours.
Three months later, Paul repented of his sins, got baptized, and made Jesus his Lord and Savior. Paul then started getting visions from God to start a new business that Paul lacked the experience, skills, and knowledge to do. With all the odds stacked against him, Paul was obedient to God’s vision and surrender his $3000 a day IT career. Paul left his Caribbean paradise lifestyle and his aspirations of becoming a porn producer to follow God’s vision to build Petclix, the largest mobile pet studio in America.
As Paul followed the heavenly visions, he faced his greatest fears and greatest challenges. Paul’s family and friends thought Paul lost his mind. Mala was the only person standing by his side. By faith and God’s strength, Paul and Mala built Petclix and experienced a dozen miracles on the way. The full story in Paul’s first book, “The Blessed Dead Atheist”. To Paul’s surprise, God’s crazy pet business returned his entire investment in four months. That’s a divine four-month ROI…!!!
Eleven years later, Paul and Mala have successfully photographed(shot) ten thousand pets and families across 35 states. Unbeknownst to them, Petclix has been more than a pet business; it's been a rolling ministry. Mala and Paul shared their testimony and prayed over thousands of pets and pet owners. God has now called them to turn their true story into a powerful Hollywood movie.
