Ministry Testimonials

My boyfriend shot! As I finished preaching one Sunday morning and stepping off the platform to minister individually to the needs of people who had come to the altar.  Out from nowhere a young lady appeared, approached me and asked if I would come quickly out to her van in front and pray. Frantically stating, my boyfriend Pierre has been shot. 

As I crouched into the back of the van their lay the young man sweating, breathing fast and holding his bloody leg in the corner of the van. I acted swiftly praying and declaring the word of the Lord over him. Next, I urged her to drive him to the hospital for further treatment as he was losing much blood from the bullet. 

Weeks later I learned the young man did indeed survive the devil’s scheme to take him out and was becoming open to things of the Lord.  Unfortunately, all too many times it takes drastic circumstances before we become attentive to and draw closer to the Lord.  I thank God for his love, care, concern, healing and mercy toward this young man, granting him grace in his hour of great need.  I bless God for answering prayer.  To God be the Glory!

Cancer Free! A relative spoke to me about a co-worker and believer in Christ who as being bothered by some kind of lumps not quite on but very near her breast.  My relative told her, (I will call her sister J.) to call and be seen right away for a diagnosis.  Sister J did call and got a same-day doctor appointment.  She was told she had breast cancer at an aggressive and advanced stage.  Sister J, was stunned and beyond devastated.  After sharing sister J’s story, I too interceded and while doing so the Holy Spirit directed me to do something I had never done before or since.  I told my relative to bring the sister my prayer shawl.  It was accompanied with Lord led directions and instructions I had written (and she followed) on how she was to use it in relation and in addition to her medical treatments. Today Sister J is cancer free and has been for several years now.  I bless God for this mission being able to intervene and partake in a minor way. To God be the Glory!

No Longer Barren. When I met Karen she had been married for several years and her and her husband longed for a baby.  She had previously had a miscarriage and because of it she and her husband began looking into other means of having a baby. I asked her before moving forward to give God another chance--his way. While praying I spoke to her as the spirit gave me the utterance and directed me placing my hand on her belly.  The Lord was healing her from damage in her system on the inside that was blocking her ability to carry and to birth as she should.  But that day, healing occurred.  In just a few short weeks I received a call from Karen informing me she was pregnant--with twins. 

In the course of time she would lose one twin but give birth to the other, a completely healthy baby girl.   A few short years later she would conceive again, to yet another healthy baby.  God is good and grants us the desire of our heart. We thank God for answered prayer.  To God be the Glory!

Re-dedication Heroin Addict No More!  The Lord allowed Gary and I to cross paths as I met his minor need but not without him hearing about the Lord.  We chatted for some time. He was honest and transparent and even shared with me that he had been a Heroin addict who had strayed from the Lord.  I listened then then asked if we could pray. After praying I asked if Gary wanted Jesus once again to rule and reign in his life?  Without hesitation, as if he was just waiting for this moment, he said yes.

Upon meeting him he had not used Heroin for about a year.  However, he realized he would need God’s help to stay free.  I thank God for directing our paths and I thank God for Gary's re-dedication of his life back to the Lord. To God be the Glory!

The Reunion. The ministry received a call from a female TV viewer.  We chatted and became briefly acquainted, sharing she was a small business owner, where she resided, even asking for ways she could help, just an overall pleasant conversation.  During the course of conversation, she would share with me her burden she carried in not having heard from her son in some time. She did not know if he was yet in the city, out of the city, or even dead or alive for that matter due to the span of time. She was worried and deeply desired to just hear from him.  The Lord gave me words of comfort and faith to say to her and then I prayed.  About a month later I received a letter from this viewer who wrote to share with me that her son had at last called and was alive and well! I could feel her relief as I read her letter.  To God be the Glory for answered prayer!

Mother & Unborn child in Crisis.  I met a man of God in Minneapolis.  It was a God-ordained, God-timing meeting unlike any other.  I could see by his countenance he as very broken so I asked if he was alright?  At the time I did not even know he was a pastor of a 1,000 member congregation from Ethiopia.  He teared up, then broke down, and shortly thereafter composed himself enough to tell me what was happening.  His wife was hospitalized and could possibly lose their first baby.  Problem was she was due in April and it was early January.  Mind you, he did not know me in the natural, but said upon barely seeing and just meeting me that he discerned just who I was by the spirit and so asked if I would be willing to go to the hospital with him? I tried redirecting him to others who could equally help, however, he was not having it and I did go upon his beckoning. Neither of us had an agenda we would simply be Lord led from here. 

Once at the hospital I did not realize his wife was in the wing of the crisis unit?  I entered the crisis unit into her room while the pastor went and keeled by his wife's bedside. She was expecting me as he had phoned her ahead of time and told her I had agreed to come. In the natural we were strangers, yet bonded by the spirit.  I immediately found her to be a very sweet young woman a long way from home and family, who was uncertain about her and her baby's fate.

I in turn contacted five women who at the time were serving as ministry intercessors and asked them to intercede with us. I then went to the sink and scrubbed my hands and took out my bottle of anointed oil and prayed a spiritual warfare prayer while at the same time anointing her belly with oil. Declaring that she and her unborn baby would both live and not die.  The Lord spoke in our midst that she would carry her living baby in her arms.  And he gave me specific words and scripture passages to leave her with.  We enjoyed a time fellowship afterward. I could see new life over her and her husband. They were relieved, it was evident.  The very Spirit of the Lord God had shown up in our midst.

She told me later how valuable the words were that had been spoken, clinging on to every word for weeks on end that caused her not to lose hope. She did give prematurely and hold in her arms a tiny underweight baby boy whom they named Samuel, which means heard or asked of God.  I must confess, things was touch and go for a very long time but in the process of time God brought baby Samuel through perfectly. 

I've been informed that his parents tell this story over and over again, leaving people in utter disbelief on the orchestration and hand of God.  I thank God for the pleasure his parents gave me, (a Christian couple I had previously never met up until the day Samuel's father requested I come to the hosptial to pray for his wife and unborn son) of holding baby Samuel in my arms with nothing missing or broken. Yes, he was tiny, but he was whole. To God be the Glory!

A Radio listener's 15-year business on the brink of closure.  A Las Vegas, Nevada-USA listener contacted my outreach to share all the Lord had done. Week's earlier this woman sister E, called the ministry and asked if she could be sent the full version of the message that she had heard while driving her car over FM radio but only in part.  The message moved her to take action as it related to her 15-year nonprofit business on the edge of closure due to financial hardship. She cried out the heartfelt prayer as heard in the message asking the Lord to move on behalf of her work.

Prior to hearing the message she had called her city's local major newspaper to get her story out.  However, they turned her down.  After hearing the preached message she was directed this time by the spirit to once again contact the same newspaper to print her story, again initially they would not, but did place her on hold by phone and came back with a change of heart and told her they would print her story. 

The printing of her story caused funding and other resources to come in that saved her business in the community from closing.  The giving was so much that she literally ran out of space to hold items people were wanting to donate.  The local electric company said they could no longer accept any more payments toward her business electricity bill as she had too many credits that had been applied.  Checks were written to keep her business doors open in the community. The giving had become much and her organization was amply supplied and back on its feet financially and otherwise.  As we chatted by phone, we rejoiced greatly in the doings of our Lord!  To God be the Glory! The message she heard was Jesus Please Don't Leave Me in This Condition.  A snippet of this message is accessible online over tunein radio:

Angst & Uncertainties

It's a given, we will all experience times when our what’s next, how, where, or when will occur in our lives and nothing we can do to control, hurry or alter the situation. These are the times where we must choose to become intentionally cognizant of the Spirit of the Lord directing activity both seen and unseen as it relates to us personally. Not the world, not our job, not our neighbor, not our ministry, but to us.

In 2021 will you personally commit to clinging to the ...

Peace

The Holy scriptures let’s us know that it's possible to not have a fearful or troubled heart amid terrifying events in all the earth. The Word declares this, "peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Therefore, all ye saints of our Lord put your hope in God!

The Power of Love

June 7, 2020

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”  
  -The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and tho...

NOW

March 30, 2020
The word NOW is mentioned well over 1,000 times in scripture. Therefore, it holds great significance so pay close attention.  A few references of the word can be found in:

2 Kings 20:3 “I beseech thee, O LORD, remember NOW how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore."

Nehemiah 1:11 “O Lord, I beseech thee, let NOW thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, ...

Woman of the Bible: Lydia

July 29, 2019


We meet her in verse 14 of Acts 16, And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purpose, of the city of Thyatira,…

It’s interesting that the bible records Lydia personally by name verses introducing her as just a woman.  Lydia heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ out of the mouth of Paul the Apostle and the Bible says that “God opened her heart to “hear and receive” the gospel Paul preached.  She believed and she was baptized, along with her household afterward.

Lydia was a busin...

Divine Appointments

December 31, 2018

December 31, 2018

Events and circumstances in our lives are not always just mere common occurrences but rather divine set-ups and many times they unfortunately go unrecognized. Beloved, it’s a most pitiful pathetic state when we don't recognize the answer to our prayers we have travailed and fasted about, when we don't recognize our blessings, and when divine appointments go unrecognized.

The book of Samuel sites a clear situation in the case of Saul who had no idea he would be chose...

It’s been a while before I’ve had a chance to blog.  God has blessed.  I now am a homeowner, he’s blessed my son with a reliable vehicle and the opportunity to go to a private school.  Lastly, this past week I interviewed for a big promotion with my current employer.  Needless to say, life has been busy!

With all the things God has added unto me, I ...
