October Newsletter (Folsom Street Fair)
I can't believe how quickly this year is going by. The Father's always faithful to do exceedingly abundantly more than we could ever even think, because he's God. Our time this year at Folsom Street Fair was the best ever, I believe. I am so honored and blessed to introduce new Pastor Evelyn D from San Francisco, California. We met a year prior at Folsom Street Fair, and within one year this amazing woman and team has been out hitting the streets in the bars. Whether it's the transgender, homosexuals, or going for the homeless it doesn't matter. So, for one year she had proved herself so faithful to God that I knew for the first time, honestly in six years, that I'm able now to start to build even greater for San Francisco, California, where there's been the filthiest dark of dark, when it comes to sex, going on for close to 40 years. I always believe that Sodom and Gomorrah has nothing on this, because the times are so much darker now than they were even back in that time, and yet back then was bad, you know. We officially now have a home base with a Deliverance Healing Center, and I was really honored and privileged to be able to ordain her with her husband and team there, as it was it was just so beautiful.
The streets, as always, were amazing but this year it was so different because I was there located right smack-dab where the Folsom Street Fair is at, so talk about it, the view from the Eagle's Nest is incredible. I was able to minister to so many people, I mean that 50 was probably nothing, so I just kept going back and giving people words. I met so many beautiful people there since there is a Sisterhood in San Francisco, and they're all queens...period. When I was asked why I was there, I said I was a Pastor out of Seattle, Washington, and they looked at me kind of odd and said, “You’re a pastor?” I go, “Yes, I am!” Because of all the sex and the Darkness that's in these places they were kind of shocked. You see, they believe that we hate them because of their lifestyle, that Jesus wants nothing to do with them, that God hates them, and Christians hate them. You see, all of my years now going there, the one theme that I get over and over again is that so many young people and older have been so shunned and pushed away by family, and friends, and society, that many have tried many numerous times to want to commit suicide. The rate for suicide all over the world is unprecedented. To be able to minister and love God’s Sons and Daughters is one of the most greatest gifts He's ever allowed me to be a part of all these years later. It is a Ministry that He never ceases to amaze me in, as His love is being poured out, like liquid love from heaven touching Earth, and touching men and women everywhere.
As I continue to grow, and go, and to build, I am launching and training more and more Nations and Churches how to evangelize, how to do gay pride parades, how to go into bars, and it's just incredible.
This young man and I talked about his life, and I asked him the question if he had felt, because he's transitioning to another gender, if he had ever felt suicidal or of heavy spirit, and if there were thoughts of that. He told me yes. The statistics for the LGBTQ community but between the ages of 10 and 24 years old is that they are five times more likely to commit suicide than just a heterosexual boy or girl. The greatest thing, again, that I saw this year was being able to minister and just love on people, let them know they have value, that they are loved, in that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. They always ask me why I'm there, you know, being 60 and everything, and I say, “You know, I'm a Pastor, love Jesus and he loves you too”. I've seen more tears and just Hearts being healed because many of their parents have left them, and they have no family in their churches. It's really bad right now and, in my own opinion, the only way that we are going to reach them in their identity crisis is to get out there and minister the love of Jesus! I have not one time ever had anyone ask me if I believe they're going to go to hell because they're homosexual or transgender. Everyone I've ever spoken to, and I'm talking hundreds of people, have said that they just see a love in my eyes and know I'm not there to judge anyone, but I am there to bring in the love, and that's what's going to turn people toward Jesus.
Sadly, because of what I do for the King of Kings, some acts of love which are misunderstood or unaccepted, we have lost partners, Facebook, email and Instagram support by the thousands, and it's a little hard to understand sometimes. I think, Father, if my Son or Daughter was in such darkness and so lost wouldn't you send someone to go get them? I look through the eyes of a Mother every time and everywhere I go with a compassion and passion that I know only comes from Christ.
Depression and suicidal tendencies have become rampant among many, especially youth, these days. Please view the video for interesting interviews regarding this event and the lives involved in them.
I am a Bible toting, Holy Spirit fired and filled to overflow with the all the Father has given me. I will continue to go all over the world and train God’s people on reaching the lost.
