“Hurt people hurt others, but healed people heal others.”
This phrase left an indelible mark on my life. I had just come back from a personal retreat, one that was recommended by my Pastors Bray and Diane Sibley. He and his wife told me, “Take time away without the children and allow the Lord to bring closure, and healing in areas that you have not exposed to Him yet.” I thought, “Okay what do I have to lose?” I went up to Shreveport, LA to spend time with my spiritual big brother and sister, Pastors Denny and DeAnza Duron. It was a five hour trip, and I’m not much for road trips. I listened to audio books; I brought journals Roosevelt had left behind; and plenty of photo albums. I did not know just what to expect, but I knew I needed to do this. I was amazed at what would become of this time. For days I cried, I wept, I prayed, I listened to new praise and worship (Anthony Evans). Something was happening on the inside of me. A transformation took place. It finally dawned on me that I went back to the place where I was married, and I first started my ministry life with Rho. God visited my pain and healed me. Yes! I left that place healed.
While I was there, Pastor Robert Morris (Gateway Church Southlake, TX) preached at a conference Denny hosted. He talked about, “The Blessed Life”. It was at that altar that I received two impartations. I received the gift of giving, and the gift of healing. These strictly belong to God, but he has imparted them to me. All I could do was retreat back to the hotel and spend time in His presence. On my road trip back I listened to Pastor Joel Olsteen’s audio book It’s Your Time. Only God could set me up for such a great miracle.
My children, Trinity Joy and Israel David are doing remarkable. I don’t assume that; we talk, talk, and talk some more about it. They will be traveling with me on Mother’s Day as we preach in Winston Salem First A/G under the leadership of Dr. Mike and Darla Rakes. I will have two weeks and then turn around to be part of a large youth conference in Alberta, Canada with Mike Love.
My assignment is simple. It is to always bring healing to others; through the magnificent way my Savior has brought healing to me. So many of us carry sickness, emotional wounds, and pain, this is not what God intended. He desires above all that we would prosper and be in health! (3 John 1:2)
Pthirtyone is my ministry name as I travel once or twice a month. I would love to connect with you as we complete this website by June. I am on facebook, twitter and have email. The adventure is just beginning. I love you!
Your friend and sis,
