I would like to also share about 2 other young ladies whose lives have intersected
recently. They are currently in the process of becoming new oak trees. These
young lady’s names are Ashley and Jada. Each one has been RESCUED from
the arena of drug use. Let's begin with JADA.
I received a text by a local lawyer, David Doughty asking if I would reach out
to a family whose daughter was in need of RESCUE. I contacted the family and
spoke with the mother. The mother asked if I could attend a prayer meeting
lifting up her daughter in prayer to come out of her lifestyle of drug use. I
met the family in Monroe at a New Church Plant to lift up JADA with other family
members for the Lord to RESCUE her from the life she was leading. We spent
about 2 hours praying and worshiping the Lord.
Immediately following the prayer and worship time we went to eat at a Restaurant.
While eating dinner with JADA'S family I received a text from my wife. But
before I share about that text msg let me just say that my wife Michelle and I
had gotten into a little TIFF earlier that day and Michelle wasn't feeling
spiritual enough to attend the Thursday night celebrate recovery service. As the
Lord would have it Michelle decided to walk into the church building with Hannah
to drop Hannah off to attend and assist the worship team for the CR Service.
Others asked Michelle to stay so she decided to stay. While sitting through the
service a volunteer by the name of Clarence saw my wife and waved her up to
come and give counsel to ladies during the Altar call at the end of the service.
So, here's the reason for all of this backstory. Ashely Evans was living in a
Storage Unit Building while being addicted to Meth. Ashely's mother Kim was
attending the Celebrate Recovery service and approached my wife Michelle to
pray with her about Ashely. She then asked Michelle if I would be willing to go
see parents Vickie and Jesse; I received a Text Message from Michelle asking
if I would go by and visit Ashley at the Storage Unit. The family had already
asked me to go back at a previous time and Ashley wasn't on site; I encountered
a drunk man living in a small RV for my FIRST ATTEMPT. That man came
out of his trailer storming at me as if I were there to rob him. Thankfully Hannah
and I were able to pray with him and he told Ashely; the next day that we had
come by to see her and that he had experienced the best night of sleep that
he could ever remember. So, I decided to go and visit Ashley that Thursday
night at around 9:00 P.M immediately leaving from visiting with JADA'S
PARENTS. I don't usually go visit women alone but in this moment, I just
went with it. I'm thinking to myself... Time truly is of the essence and I may
not get another chance.
