This year has been my year of rebuilding me and who I am in Christ from the bottom up.
I have been in Ministry for over 15 years, always stepping out in faith and doing what the Lord called me to do. A street Minister by heart, I started out Ministry at The Rock Church in Kissimmee Florida, there is where I learned how to evangelize and how a Ministry is built and runs. After 2 years, the Lord moved me on to Freedom Tabernacle under Pastor Arthur & Debra Lee. Pastor Arthur was an Apostle & specialized in Deliverance & the five fold ministry. The Lord told me that Pastor Arthur will teach me who I am in Christ, after 7 years under his church, in 2011 My beloved Spiritual father passed on at a young tender age and many of were left “alone”. Although His son in law proceeded with the church, but I didn’t feel God wanted me under his leadership so I resigned.
Since then, I have been following the Holy Spirit and what I have been taught and taking an initiative to building my own Ministry. I started out with Daughter’s of God Ministry which was bible based teachings in women of faith’s homes, then the Lord added out reach projects such as feeding the homeless, helping single mothers, etc. He then changed my name to Voices Healing Outreach Ministries.
As time went on I tried to find a church covering for my ministry, but many of these Pastors had lots of conditions and preferred me to work in their church verses my ministry. So God brought me to NACM back in 2013. 🙂 Praise God.
In 2015, Life happened to me, as I was beginning to flourish with these outreach projects, My 18 year old daughter passed away in a motorcycle accident, then my mother passed a year later. I was so lost. But my faith in God never died. So, it took 3 years to find my identity again and with in this last year God has been re-building my life. Now, He has me away from all I ever known into a territory completely new and different in Austin Texas by myself. My first born daughter lives in San Antonio an hour and a half away with her husband and fiance. By the Grace of God they are moving closer to Austin! Amen.
Being in Austin, Being in Texas I found that churches and beliefs are slightly different here especially being near Mexico where their are many that still carry those old religious traditions especially in San Antonio. In Austin which is huge on LGTB community along with Mexican Traditions and a large move of Californians here, I had my challenges in the spirit. But with the Grace of God, I learned to learn this new city, it’s culture and to love on every one. My prayer life has strengthen enormously, the Lord has brought other fellow Christians in my life and now, he recently brought into my life a young lady from Tampa Florida that believes and flows in the gifting of the Holyspirit, who has a heart for serving Christ. I believe God will use Faith and I to reach many out here to show the Love of Christ through outreaches,women groups. Grief groups, and whatever the Lord puts in our hearts….
It’s different out here, but we serve a loving powerful God! amen!
God bless you all!
