“That’s my Child”

In 2003 God showed me a man Gabriel (not his real name) who received 25 life sentences and an additional 1200 years for various other charges. As I listened to the comments of the public on his sentence: “He is an animal,” “Hang him,“ “Lock the door and throw away the key!”; God whispered to my spirit: “That’s my child, he’s my son! He only acted out the lies he believed.”

God broke my heart for Gabriel, so I asked the Lord to please take me to a Maximum prison where I can begin minister to those who have done similar heinous crimes and who have been judged by society; those who have been put there by the judicial and law enforcement. I believe that by the power of God’s love they can be healed, rehabilitated and reconciled back to God.
