the Storage Unit Building. I was dumbfounded at this point. I had hoped that
Ashley would move forward with a Spiritual Rehab program. But she had not yet
made that decision. As the Lord would have it Anita would intervene again and
came by the Storage Unit to encourage Ashley and to make a phone call to Pecan
Haven to apply for the next available bed. Kathy Danna also had been praying for
Ashley - even nearby the site at times. Many would play a role. A bed would open
a few days later at the PECAN HAVEN REHAB program. She was there for 30
days. Ashley’s counselor Holly Savage is married to a former student who
attended my youth group at FBC Calhoun - Patrick. Holly worked wonders with
Ashley. Holly also allowed me to meet with Ashely on about day 29. Ashley and I
visited for 1 hour. Ashley was very hungry for God and had many questions. I
shared a spiritual resource with her by Katie Souza - A book entitled "Soul Decree".
She was excited to receive it and I was able to explain to her how to use the book.
The book is full of decrees to be spoken out loudly over one's life.
The next day Ashley was to begin a 7-month program with Fresh Start in Winnsboro,
La. I had recently ministered a prayer session to a Fresh Start Leader and as I was
leaving my hospice office I saw a group of men from Fresh Start driving through town
with a TRUCK FILLED WITH CHOPPED WOOD. This reminded me to go check on
the Fresh Start employee that I had recently ministered to. Sure, enough I got to see
her and to hear that She was doing well.
As I was there visiting the employee then out of nowhere Ashley appeared. Full of
Joy and excited to see me Ashley said, "Whit it seems like you just keep popping up
in my life about every 30 days". She said with tears in her eyes... "Whit, I really feel
like God is calling me to be a MISSIONARY to spread his GOSPEL abroad to other
COUNTRIES". I was blown away. This is what the Kingdom of God is all about.
Just like I mentioned earlier. The captive, the broken, the blinded, become the
SOLUTION to advancing HIS KINGDOM!!!!
