|Dearest and AP
Well greetings. Hope this finds yall all well. It’s been a wild ride round here this week.
I may need to do one of your unorthodox yet effective sprinkle/ partial dips (like you did with Aides father before he passed) as they don’t have a nice place to do so for the women.
After such awesome visible angelic activity last visit I saw not ONE this time.Mostly I felt led to spend one on one time to go around and privately minister. Shame is a big lie to be cast out and one on one time with the women provides a great time to get to this, talking to each one on one.
My 3 hours flew by, with my eyes eagerly peeking around for angels . But Nada.
Right before I left I gathered the group that I know now and we sang just a few simple choruses of ALL HONOR ALL GLORY, in Spanish and whoa the Glory just filled the womens area. It was amazing. It was like we were transported to another place I started singing in tongues, and people just got to doing so as well and in general we soaked in the Pure Presence. Before this anointing fell like fire, a demon possessed lady, actually I knew here from when we first used to minister in fact she’s the one who tried to choke me once back then. So anyway, right as the Glory started hitting people here she comes, out of her corner(she has a sheet Fort like little kids make , where she sits and babbles and hits her head on the wall). Here she’s coming right to me cursing me in at least 5 languages, women all around, scared of her & parting like the Red Sea, but she’s coming pointing at me, spitting and hissing and I remembered one time when you were here an we were out ministering in the street and the same type thing happened. Clear as day I heard you say to me “don’t you let those spirits take over. And you rebuked it and it fell on the ground trying to strangle the girl, clawing at her eyes then u very quietly knelt on the ground and said,” devils You MUST go NOW IN JESUS NAME & YOU WILL NOT HURT HER. “AND they stopped and left poom.
So back to Saturday, this really homicidal looking gal is coming to stop it all but I recalled what you taught me… Holy Spirit in me stepped out of the milk crate thing and met her and said, ‘stop, do it, now in Jesus Name and go in silence,’ and this woman melted to the floor like butter and she was in a peaceful state of sleep the rest of my time there. Afterwards her neighbor said the woman hadn’t slept in literally months, she was that tormented. NOBODY could recall seeing her sleep. The aanointing the pure Presence remained.
Its hard to to determine the length of time it lasted but the Lord gave time to pray for each one and several got filled and sang in tongues, I could hear men’s voices at one point and can only believe that the men outside of the women’s area just beyond the big metal wall got caught up in the Presence with us. I know there’s a bunch of men that listen
because the exercise yards (more like dog runs) back right up to the women’s kitchen which is sort of where my milk crate shield is. Also back in the women’s cell area, which they had me locked out of this time, you could hear singing in tongues and JOYFIL weeping as well. It was amazing.
Then it was time to go. Johanna usually keeps time for me because she has a watch, but this time a female guard came in without us having to bang on the door hollering for a guard to get me out. Quick goodbyes were said and she escorted me towards that big door that separates the men and women. Before she unlocked it the guard stopped and gave me a hug! When she did she slipped an envelope in my skirt, which kind of concerned me. I didn’t know what the heck it had in it and they usually search you going out, too. So I was aware of its presence the whole LONG walk out as men shoved letters through the fence for me to mail like they always do. That’s always the hardest most bittersweet part of the whole experience – leaving them behind. I mean I DEFINITELY want out, but it’s sad leaving people behind that you may never see again. They did not search me on my egress praise God.
Amazingly, 4of the families who usually need staples didn’t need any this week and other families, all givers, didn’t need EVERY item. Two families actually gave half of their allotment to new families which is a first. We have about 15 new families, all fleeing the violence down there. In tthe offering we got eggplant , corn , maters, chile seco, squash, coco peaches and figs. LOTS. If you have any good eggplant recipes throw me one.. Sonora AAlejandra, the very very thin older lady wants to be baptized. It is cold cold, too. So iin general they’re getting the tithing system and they are getting blessed. Two families now have a family car. One car for like 22people but hey, they are being blessed.
Hopefully, alls well with yall….. the message was great BTW.
Did you get my YouTube Black Church Don’ts!? I think they are hilarious glad I found them. They are easy for me to relate to because I went to COGIC for a couple of years. Well llet me let u go…
