  • PROSTITUTE FOUND HOPE.

  • - I STARTED DRINKING AND SMOKING CIGARETTES
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:44.270
  • AT AGE 12.
  • 00:02:44.290 --> 00:02:47.180
  • I GREW UP IN A SMALL TOWN, SO DRINKING WAS SOMEWHAT
  • 00:02:47.200 --> 00:02:51.000
  • LEGAL FOR EVEN YOUNG PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:53.130
  • I WAS ABLE TO GO TO CLUBS AT 13, 14.

  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:03:02.060
  • - MY NAME IS MARION YOUNG, AND I GREW UP IN A FAMILY
  • 00:03:02.080 --> 00:03:05.200
  • WHERE MY MOTHER RAISED US FIVE KIDS, AND MY HOUSEHOLD
  • 00:03:05.220 --> 00:03:10.180
  • WAS A PLACE WHERE WE DID A LOT OF PARTIES, A LOT OF
  • 00:03:10.200 --> 00:03:13.220
  • FAMILY PARTIES, AND IT ALWAYS INCLUDED A
  • 00:03:13.240 --> 00:03:15.250
  • LOT OF DRINKING.

  • [POP TOP]
  • 00:03:17.000 --> 00:03:19.130
  • - SO FOR ME AS A YOUNG GIRL, I ALWAYS THOUGHT
  • 00:03:19.150 --> 00:03:22.030
  • THAT WAS A GOOD TIME, JUST TO GET DRUNK AND DANCE, AND
  • 00:03:22.050 --> 00:03:28.090
  • TO ME THAT WAS A LOT OF FUN.
  • 00:03:28.110 --> 00:03:30.030
  • SO THAT CONTINUED THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:33.110
  • IN HIGH SCHOOL DANCES, WE WOULD ALWAYS DRINK BEFORE
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:35.190
  • THE DANCES AND GO TO THE DANCE DRUNK.
  • 00:03:35.210 --> 00:03:39.250
  • SO THAT PATTERN, I WAS JUST PARTYING.
  • 00:03:39.270 --> 00:03:43.090
  • TO ME, THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO DO WAS JUST
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:45.040
  • HAVE A GOOD TIME.

  • I MISSED THAT MALE MODEL IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:58.080
  • - SO WHEN HE LEAVES, THE CHILD IS, THEIR CHARACTER'S
  • 00:03:58.100 --> 00:04:02.160
  • NOT DEVELOPED, SO WHEN THEY GO INTO THE WORLD,
  • 00:04:02.180 --> 00:04:04.230
  • THEY'RE NOT PREPARED.
  • 00:04:04.250 --> 00:04:06.230
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:04:06.250 --> 00:04:11.000
  • - AND THEN IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG BEFORE I GOT INTRODUCED
  • 00:04:11.020 --> 00:04:13.130
  • TO GETTING HIGH, AND ONCE I STARTED GETTING HIGH, TO ME,
  • 00:04:13.150 --> 00:04:19.070
  • IT WAS THE BEST WAY TO ESCAPE THE WAY I
  • 00:04:19.090 --> 00:04:21.060
  • FELT IN MY HEART.
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:24.170
  • - THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO PROBLEM SOLVE.
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:29.160
  • THEY HAVE PROBLEMS EXPRESSING THEIR FEELINGS.
  • 00:04:29.180 --> 00:04:31.260
  • THE FATHER HAS A BIG INFLUENCE AND PRESENCE, AND
  • 00:04:31.280 --> 00:04:34.070
  • MOST OFTEN, IT'S THE FATHER WHO'S MISSING.
  • 00:04:34.090 --> 00:04:37.050
  • - I NEVER REALLY SAW A SOBER HOME.
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:40.040
  • I NEVER SAW A FAMILY UNIT WITH A MOTHER AND FATHER
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:43.260
  • AND THE CHILDREN. I NEVER SAW THAT.
  • 00:04:43.280 --> 00:04:47.250
  • - WHEN THEY WERE STRUGGLING WITH THAT, AND THE HOME'S
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:52.050
  • NOT PROVIDING IT THROUGH DRUGS OR ALCOHOL BECAUSE IT
  • 00:04:52.070 --> 00:04:55.020
  • INTERFERES WITH THE WHOLE PROCESS OF BRINGING UP KIDS,
  • 00:04:55.040 --> 00:04:59.120
  • SO THEY GRAVITATE TO PEERS.
  • 00:04:59.140 --> 00:05:02.050
  • THEY GRAVITATE TO ALCOHOL AND DRUGS.
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:05.130
  • - I WAS LOOKING TO JUST DROWN THE HURT AND
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:08.080
  • DISCOURAGEMENT BY DRINKING AND GETTING HIGH.
  • 00:05:08.100 --> 00:05:12.050
  • AND AFTER I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, I MOVED TO

  • IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES.
  • 00:05:29.240 --> 00:05:31.210

  • FOR THESE THINGS.
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:35.260
  • - ALSO IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG BEFORE I REALIZED THAT MY

  • LOOKS AND MY ATTITUDE COULD GET THE ATTENTION OF MEN.

  • 00:05:51.100 --> 00:05:53.170
  • I KNEW HE WAS A PIMP, AND HE APPROACHED ME AND ASKED ME
  • 00:05:53.190 --> 00:05:57.050
  • MY NAME, AND HE WAS REALLY GOOD LOOKING AND VERY
  • 00:05:57.070 --> 00:06:00.230
  • SOPHISTICATED, AND I WAS JUST MESMERIZED.
  • 00:06:00.250 --> 00:06:05.160
  • HE JUST STARTED TELLING ME ABOUT A WHOLE OTHER

  • LIFESTYLE, HOW YOU COULD MAKE MONEY, NOT WORK.
  • 00:06:07.160 --> 00:06:12.270
  • AND I WAS YOUNG AND NAIVE, AND I HAD GOTTEN HIGH AND
  • 00:06:12.290 --> 00:06:17.150
  • DRANK AND ALL OF THOSE THINGS, BUT I HAD NEVER
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:20.250
  • REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT NOT HAVING TO WORK AND MAKING
  • 00:06:20.270 --> 00:06:24.040
  • BIG MONEY AND THE NIGHT LIFE AND GOING OUT EVERY NIGHT
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:28.060
  • WITH ALL OF THESE GUYS.
  • 00:06:28.080 --> 00:06:31.050
  • SO TO ME IT SOUNDED REALLY GOOD.
  • 00:06:31.070 --> 00:06:33.050
  • I COULD GET SOMETHING FOR SLEEPING WITH SOMEONE,
  • 00:06:33.070 --> 00:06:35.280
  • WHETHER IT WAS DRUGS OR WHETHER IT WAS MONEY, SO
  • 00:06:36.000 --> 00:06:39.110
  • THAT KIND OF JUST OPENED MY EYES TO
  • 00:06:39.130 --> 00:06:41.130
  • THAT WHOLE LIFESTYLE.

  • AND I GOT MARRIED.
  • 00:06:49.030 --> 00:06:51.070

  • YEAR, AND THEN WE GOT MARRIED, AND IT'S LIKE THE

  • NIGHT THAT WE GOT MARRIED, HE STARTED CHEATING ON ME
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:16.280
  • AND ABUSING ME.

  • [GLASS BREAKING]
  • 00:07:19.290 --> 00:07:22.170
  • - SO I REMEMBERED THAT DRUGS AND ALCOHOL DROWN
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:28.120
  • PAIN, SO AS THINGS WOULD HAVE IT, I MET SOMEBODY
  • 00:07:28.140 --> 00:07:33.250
  • WHO SOLD COCAINE.
  • 00:07:33.270 --> 00:07:36.170
  • I WAS INTRODUCED TO NOT ONLY SNORTING COCAINE, BUT
  • 00:07:36.190 --> 00:07:40.270
  • SMOKING COCAINE.
  • 00:07:40.290 --> 00:07:42.260
  • BACK IN THOSE DAYS, COCAINE WAS VERY EXPENSIVE, SO I GOT
  • 00:07:42.280 --> 00:07:46.160
  • A JOB AT A BANK, AND AFTER BEING THERE FOR A FEW
  • 00:07:46.180 --> 00:07:50.010
  • MONTHS, THE MONEY STARTED KIND OF LIKE SPEAKING TO ME
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:53.200
  • BECAUSE I HAD TO PAY FOR MY HABIT NOW.
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:57.210
  • SO I STARTED TAKING $20 HERE AND THERE, A $20 OUT
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:08:01.050
  • OF MY DRAWER.
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:03.040
  • AND THEN ONE DAY THE HEAD TELLER TOOK ME INTO THE
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:06.040
  • VAULT WHERE BOXES OF MONEY WERE STORED, AND SO EVERY SO
  • 00:08:06.060 --> 00:08:12.130
  • OFTEN, YOU WOULD GO IN THERE TO GET A BOX OF MONEY TO
  • 00:08:12.150 --> 00:08:15.060
  • REFILL YOUR DRAWER, SO I STARTED TAKING BATCHES OF
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:19.010
  • MONEY FROM THE VAULT.
  • 00:08:19.030 --> 00:08:21.090
  • AND THEN I WOULD GO TO THE COKE DEALER AND BUY AS MUCH
  • 00:08:21.110 --> 00:08:24.240
  • COCAINE AS I WANTED.
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:26.280
  • BECAUSE YOU SMOKE IT, IT WENT REALLY QUICK.
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:29.280
  • IT'S LIKE YOU'RE SMOKING YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:32.090
  • SO ANOTHER TIME, I'M SETTING UP MY DRAWER, AND I SEE

  • ARRESTED BY THE FBI AND GOT FINGERPRINTED AND
  • 00:08:42.200 --> 00:08:46.080
  • THAT WHOLE THING.
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:49.180
  • AND ONCE I STARTED SMOKING COCAINE, I FELT SO GOOD.
  • 00:08:49.200 --> 00:08:56.130
  • I FELT LIKE NO PAIN FROM THE ABUSIVE MARRIAGE THAT I WAS
  • 00:08:56.150 --> 00:09:00.240
  • IN, HIM CHEATING ON ME.
  • 00:09:00.260 --> 00:09:02.270
  • [MUSIC]

  • AND OF COURSE YOU KNOW, IT HAD DOLLAR SIGNS ALL BY THE

  • AD, AND I REMEMBER I WENT TO THE AUDITION, AND SHE HAD
  • 00:09:18.170 --> 00:09:26.040
  • ALL OF THE WOMEN WHO WERE AUDITIONING TO GO INTO THE
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:28.200
  • RESTROOM AND DRESS DOWN AND JUST SHOW YOUR TOP, AND THEN
  • 00:09:28.220 --> 00:09:32.290
  • TO GET UP ON STAGE.

  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:39.250
  • DRINKING, WATCHING THE WOMEN.
  • 00:09:39.270 --> 00:09:43.180
  • AND I REMEMBER --IT WAS SO EMBARRASSING.
  • 00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:48.230
  • WHEN I GOT UP ON THE PLATFORM TO
  • 00:09:48.250 --> 00:09:50.180
  • DANCE, THEY BOOED ME.
  • 00:09:50.200 --> 00:09:56.080
  • THE MEN WERE LIKE, "GET OFF THE STAGE!"
  • 00:09:56.100 --> 00:09:59.100
  • IT WAS SO HUMILIATING.
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:02.070

  • YOU KNOW, AND SHE WAS LIKE, YOU'RE TOO SKINNY.
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:09.280
  • I THINK PROBABLY MY RIBS WERE SHOWING, WHO KNOWS?
  • 00:10:10.000 --> 00:10:13.040
  • BUT I WAS SO EMBARRASSED THAT NOT EVEN THE
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:18.270
  • STRIP CLUB WANTED ME.
  • 00:10:18.290 --> 00:10:21.230
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:10:21.250 --> 00:10:26.170
  • - BECAUSE NO MAN REALLY GAVE ME THE VALUE
  • 00:10:26.190 --> 00:10:28.120
  • THAT I NEEDED.
  • 00:10:28.140 --> 00:10:30.110
  • THEY JUST TOOK WHAT THEY WANTED.
  • 00:10:30.130 --> 00:10:32.140
  • SURE THEY PAID FOR ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, BUT SOMETHING
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:35.160
  • INSIDE OF ME STARTED TO GET LESS AND LESS
  • 00:10:35.180 --> 00:10:37.280
  • AND LESS VALUABLE.
  • 00:10:38.000 --> 00:10:41.170
  • SO I FOUND MYSELF STARTING TO CHARGE MEN FOR SEX,
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:47.170
  • OR FOR DRUGS, WHATEVER THEY HAD.
  • 00:10:47.190 --> 00:10:50.260
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:10:50.280 --> 00:10:55.020
  • - AND IT CONTINUED, MAN AFTER MAN.
  • 00:10:55.040 --> 00:10:59.090
  • I STARTED TO FORGET THEIR NAMES.
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:01.290
  • I'D WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, AND I'D THINK, WHO WAS THAT
  • 00:11:02.010 --> 00:11:05.040
  • THAT I WAS WITH LAST NIGHT?
  • 00:11:05.060 --> 00:11:06.250
  • I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER.
  • 00:11:06.270 --> 00:11:08.270
  • I STARTED FORGETTING THEIR NAMES, AND THEN MY OWN
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:11.060
  • NAME LOST ALL VALUE.
  • 00:11:11.080 --> 00:11:13.280
  • AND BEFORE I KNEW IT, I STARTED WALKING THE STREETS.
  • 00:11:14.000 --> 00:11:18.220
  • I REMEMBER ONE TIME I WAS SO DESPERATE, I WAS SO LOW.
  • 00:11:18.240 --> 00:11:24.140
  • ALL OF MY ESTEEM WAS GONE. I HAD NO VALUE LEFT.
  • 00:11:24.160 --> 00:11:30.190
  • I STARTED WALKING THE STREET, AND A MAN PULLED
  • 00:11:30.210 --> 00:11:34.010
  • OVER, AND HE SAID, HOW MUCH?
  • 00:11:34.030 --> 00:11:38.170
  • AND AT THAT TIME, BECAUSE OF SUCH A LOW SELF ESTEEM AND
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:41.120
  • SO LITTLE VALUE THAT I HAD IN MY LIFE, I SAID $50.
  • 00:11:41.140 --> 00:11:47.140
  • HE SAID, I AIN'T GIVING YOU $50.
  • 00:11:47.160 --> 00:11:49.210
  • - $20? - GET IN.
  • 00:11:49.230 --> 00:11:51.290
  • - SO FROM ALL THE DRINKING, ALL THE DRUGS, DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:58.170 --> 00:12:01.110
  • MEN, THE VALUE I HAD LEFT WAS $20.
  • 00:12:01.130 --> 00:12:07.270
  • AND I GAVE MYSELF TO THAT MAN IN THE BACK SEAT
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:12.180
  • OF HIS CAR FOR $20.
  • 00:12:12.200 --> 00:12:19.160
  • AND I REMEMBER WHEN HE PULLED AWAY, I WENT INTO MY
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:22.100
  • HOME, AND I SAT IN THE SHOWER, AND I SCRUBBED, AND
  • 00:12:22.120 --> 00:12:26.200
  • I SCRUBBED, BUT WHAT WAS GOING ON ON THE INSIDE OF
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:31.100
  • ME, I COULDN'T CLEAN BECAUSE MY HEART WAS BROKEN.
  • 00:12:31.120 --> 00:12:37.270
  • - RIGHT NOW, I'M RIGHT HERE WITH MARION.
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:40.030
  • NOW, MARION, AFTER JUST LOOKING AT YOU, NO ONE WOULD
  • 00:12:40.050 --> 00:12:43.240
  • EVER BELIEVE THAT YOU CAME OUT OF A LIFE OF
  • 00:12:43.260 --> 00:12:45.170
  • TRAGEDY AND PAIN.
  • 00:12:45.190 --> 00:12:48.110
  • WHAT BROUGHT ABOUT THE CHANGE WITHIN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:12:48.130 --> 00:12:51.100
  • - IT TOOK A LOT OF PRAYER, A LOT OF PRAYER AND WOMEN
  • 00:12:51.120 --> 00:12:54.290
  • COMING INTO MY LIFE AND SHARING THAT THERE WAS A
  • 00:12:55.010 --> 00:12:58.160
  • PURPOSE FOR ME LIFE, AND THAT GOD WAS GOING TO USE
  • 00:12:58.180 --> 00:13:00.290
  • SOME OF THE TRAGEDIES THAT I WENT THROUGH, AND HE TOUCHED
  • 00:13:01.010 --> 00:13:03.150
  • MY LIFE; THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO GO OUT AND REACH
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:06.150
  • OTHER WOMEN WHO HAD BEEN THROUGH THE SAME TYPE OF
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:09.040
  • TRAGEDIES THAT I WENT THROUGH, AND JUST LETTING ME
  • 00:13:09.060 --> 00:13:11.210
  • KNOW THAT GOD COULD CHANGE MY LIFE, AND THAT HE LOVED
  • 00:13:11.230 --> 00:13:13.290
  • ME NO MATTER WHAT.
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:16.010
  • NO MATTER WHAT I HAD DONE, THE LORD LOVED ME, AND THAT
  • 00:13:16.030 --> 00:13:19.040
  • MEANT THE WORLD TO ME, AND IT HELPED CHANGE MY LIFE.
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:22.260
  • - THAT'S A MANIFESTATION OF HIS GRACE AND A
  • 00:13:22.280 --> 00:13:26.020
  • MANIFESTATION OF HIS LOVE.
  • 00:13:26.040 --> 00:13:29.010
  • AND NOW WE WILL CONTINUE WITH MARION'S STORY.
  • 00:13:29.030 --> 00:13:33.220
  • - I DON'T KNOW, LIFE JUST SEEMED SO MEANINGLESS, AND I
  • 00:13:37.290 --> 00:13:41.070
  • ENDED UP GETTING A CALL FROM A FRIEND IN CALIFORNIA, AND
  • 00:13:41.090 --> 00:13:45.210
  • SHE SAID, COME ON OUT HERE.
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:49.170
  • MY HUSBAND ENDED UP LEAVING ME ANYWAY, AND SO I
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:53.030
  • ENDED UP IN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:56.090
  • AND I WAS LIVING WITH THIS FRIEND OF HERS, AND HIS
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:14:00.090
  • SON'S GIRLFRIEND WAS A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:04.130
  • AND I REMEMBER WHEN SHE WOULD COME OVER, SHE WOULD
  • 00:14:04.150 --> 00:14:07.110
  • LOOK AT ME LIKE SHAKING HER HEAD LIKE, WOW.
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:12.190
  • BECAUSE I MUST HAVE LOOKED REALLY AWFUL AND LONELY, AND
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:18.050
  • HER BEING A CHRISTIAN, SHE COULD SEE THE PAIN
  • 00:14:18.070 --> 00:14:20.180
  • THAT WAS IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:14:20.200 --> 00:14:22.280
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:14:23.000 --> 00:14:26.240
  • - AND SHE WOULD ALWAYS TALK TO ME ABOUT COMING TO CHURCH
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:28.280
  • WITH HER, BUT CHURCH WAS LIKE SO FAR FROM MY MIND.
  • 00:14:29.000 --> 00:14:33.230
  • THE LAST THING I THOUGHT I NEEDED, BUT SHE
  • 00:14:33.250 --> 00:14:36.190
  • WAS SO PERSISTENT.
  • 00:14:36.210 --> 00:14:38.210
  • YOU NEED TO COME.
  • 00:14:38.230 --> 00:14:40.290
  • BUT THEN SHE SAID ONE THING THAT REALLY SPARKED
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:43.010
  • MY INTEREST.
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:45.100
  • SHE SAID, YOU KNOW, JESUS LOVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT, NO
  • 00:14:45.120 --> 00:14:49.200
  • MATTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
  • 00:14:49.220 --> 00:14:52.190
  • THAT TO ME WAS LIKE --I'M LIKE WHAT?
  • 00:14:52.210 --> 00:14:55.110
  • I DON'T HAVE TO EARN IT?
  • 00:14:55.130 --> 00:14:57.040
  • I DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING FOR IT?
  • 00:14:57.060 --> 00:14:59.060
  • I DON'T HAVE TO MAKE HIM LOVE ME?
  • 00:14:59.080 --> 00:15:02.030
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:15:02.050 --> 00:15:07.270
  • - I ENDED UP GOING TO CHURCH WITH HER, AND I
  • 00:15:07.290 --> 00:15:10.120
  • REMEMBER WALKING IN THERE AND LOOKING AROUND AT ALL OF
  • 00:15:10.140 --> 00:15:13.240
  • THESE YOUNG PEOPLE WORSHIPPING GOD,
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:16.230
  • AND I HAD NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:21.010
  • AND THERE WAS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THAT PLACE THAT
  • 00:15:21.030 --> 00:15:22.270
  • TOUCHED MY HEART.
  • 00:15:22.290 --> 00:15:25.070
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:15:25.090 --> 00:15:29.250
  • - I REMEMBER GOING TO THE ALTAR AND JUST LIKE ONE OF
  • 00:15:29.270 --> 00:15:34.230
  • THE PRAYERS THAT YOU HEAR SO MANY PEOPLE PRAY.
  • 00:15:34.250 --> 00:15:38.020
  • IF YOU'RE REAL, IF YOU CAN CHANGE ME, THEN I
  • 00:15:38.040 --> 00:15:40.270
  • ASK THAT YOU CHANGE ME.
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:44.000
  • AND I JUST FELT WARMTH IN MY HEART AND A PURENESS THAT I
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:49.190
  • HAD NOT FELT EVER IN MY LIFE; A LOVE THAT I HAD
  • 00:15:49.210 --> 00:15:54.090
  • NEVER FELT BEFORE.
  • 00:15:54.110 --> 00:15:58.010
  • LOVE CAME DOWN AND RESCUED ME...
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:16:01.110
  • LOVE CAME DOWN AND SET ME FREE...
  • 00:16:01.130 --> 00:16:03.220
  • - AND I FELL ON MY KNEES, AND I CRIED, AND I CRIED,
  • 00:16:03.240 --> 00:16:06.050
  • AND I CRIED.
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:08.050
  • AND I REMEMBER WHEN I GOT UP, I FELT LIKE,
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:11.100
  • WOW, SOMETHING...
  • 00:16:11.120 --> 00:16:15.140
  • SOMETHING HAPPENED THAT I HAD NEVER DREAMED
  • 00:16:15.160 --> 00:16:18.230
  • OF, YOU KNOW?
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:21.070
  • AND I GAVE MY LIFE TO THE LORD.
  • 00:16:21.090 --> 00:16:23.290
  • I AM FOREVER YOURS...
  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:27.020
  • - I FELT THAT LOVE. I FELT THAT FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:16:27.040 --> 00:16:29.100
  • I FELT THAT ACCEPTANCE, AND ALL THE SIN, ALL THE MESS,
  • 00:16:29.120 --> 00:16:35.220
  • ALL THE MISTAKES, THEY WERE ALL LIKE WASHED AWAY.
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:41.270
  • BLESS THE LORD, OH, MY SOUL...
  • 00:16:41.290 --> 00:16:45.010
  • OH, MY SOUL...
  • 00:16:45.030 --> 00:16:49.160
  • - THAT WAS ME OVER 30 YEARS AGO, BUT NOW I'M
  • 00:16:49.180 --> 00:16:52.170
  • A DIFFERENT WOMAN.
  • 00:16:52.190 --> 00:16:54.130
  • I'M A WOMAN WHO HAS A PURPOSE, A WOMAN WHOSE
  • 00:16:54.150 --> 00:16:56.240
  • DIGNITY HAS BEEN RESTORED.
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:58.280
  • GOD HAS DONE SO MANY AMAZING THINGS IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:16:59.000 --> 00:17:02.040
  • OF A WONDERFUL JOB, AND I FOUND A WONDERFUL HUSBAND.
  • 00:17:02.060 --> 00:17:05.150
  • AND HE LOVES ME, AND I LOVE HIM, AND WE BOTH HAVE
  • 00:17:05.170 --> 00:17:10.130
  • A PURPOSE IN LIFE.
  • 00:17:10.150 --> 00:17:13.090
  • - IF THERE WAS A PERFECT WOMAN THAT WAS DESIGNED
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:15.020
  • FOR ME, SHE IS THE ONE.
  • 00:17:15.040 --> 00:17:17.010
  • HER PAST WAS BASICALLY, IT WAS THE PAST, AND WHEN WE
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:19.160
  • CAME INTO CHRIST AND WE BEGAN OUR RELATIONSHIP, IT
  • 00:17:19.180 --> 00:17:22.250
  • WAS ABOUT US FROM THERE GOING FORWARD.
  • 00:17:22.270 --> 00:17:25.240
  • THE PAST REALLY DIDN'T MATTER TO ME.
  • 00:17:25.260 --> 00:17:28.100
  • BUT YOU KNOW, I THINK IT'S JUST THE LOVE OF HER AND THE
  • 00:17:28.120 --> 00:17:32.250
  • LOVE OF CHRIST AND WHAT SHE BROUGHT TO THE TABLE
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.180
  • FROM THE BEGINNING.
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:36.120
  • I WASN'T TOO CONCERNED ABOUT HER PAST.
  • 00:17:36.140 --> 00:17:38.050
  • SHE MAKES UP ALL OF MY WEAKNESSES.
  • 00:17:38.070 --> 00:17:40.170
  • SHE LOOKS PAST ALL OF MY LITTLE THINGS, BUT OF
  • 00:17:40.190 --> 00:17:43.150
  • COURSE SHE BUILDS ME.
  • 00:17:43.170 --> 00:17:45.090
  • WHEN I'M DOWN, SHE'S THERE TO BUILD ME UP, AND SHE'S
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:47.230
  • AN ENCOURAGER LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS.
  • 00:17:47.250 --> 00:17:52.000
  • - HE LOVES ME, AND I LOVE HIM WITH ALL OF MY HEART.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:56.070
  • AND NOW MY PURPOSE IS TO GO AND TELL WOMEN, I TELL
  • 00:17:56.090 --> 00:17:59.070
  • THEM THAT SAME THING.
  • 00:17:59.090 --> 00:18:01.060
  • NO MATTER WHAT, NO MATTER WHAT YOU'VE DONE,
  • 00:18:01.080 --> 00:18:05.050
  • JESUS LOVES YOU.
  • 00:18:05.070 --> 00:18:07.040
  • I GO OUT TO THE STREETS ON SATURDAY NIGHT, AND I REACH
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:10.050
  • OUT TO THE PROSTITUTES, WHAT WE CALL TWILIGHT TREASURES
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:14.000
  • IN OUR MINISTRY, VICTORY OUTREACH.
  • 00:18:14.020 --> 00:18:16.010
  • I TELL THE WOMEN THAT ARE STANDING THERE HALF DRESSED
  • 00:18:16.030 --> 00:18:20.070
  • THAT YOU KNOW, THERE'S A BETTER LIFE.
  • 00:18:20.090 --> 00:18:22.150
  • THERE'S A BETTER PURPOSE.
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:24.200
  • AND NO, I DON'T TELL THEM IT'S THE EASIEST LIFE,
  • 00:18:24.220 --> 00:18:27.110
  • BECAUSE IT IS, IT GETS HARD SOMETIMES, ESPECIALLY WHEN
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:31.010
  • YOUR MIND HAS BEEN MESSED UP, AND YOU'VE BEEN ABUSED
  • 00:18:31.030 --> 00:18:34.060
  • AND SO MANY THINGS.
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:36.050
  • BUT I TELL THEM THAT JESUS LOVES THEM, AND HE CAN MAKE
  • 00:18:36.070 --> 00:18:39.210
  • A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:18:39.230 --> 00:18:42.070
  • - AND WE WANT YOU TO KNOW TODAY THAT HE LOVES YOU,
  • 00:18:42.090 --> 00:18:45.180
  • AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU'VE DONE...
  • 00:18:45.200 --> 00:18:51.120
  • THAT HIS LOVE DOESN'T FORGIVE, AMEN.
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:53.290
  • - THAT'S MY PURPOSE IN LIFE.
  • 00:18:54.010 --> 00:18:56.030
  • EVERYTHING I DO IS TO HELP WOMEN BECAUSE I THINK I'VE
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:58.230
  • DONE IT ALL.
  • 00:18:58.250 --> 00:19:00.180
  • I'VE EITHER DONE IT ALL OR SEEN IT ALL, AND I STILL
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:03.100
  • SERVE THE LORD KNOWING THAT HE FORGAVE ME, AND I NEVER
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:06.060
  • FORGET WHERE I CAME FROM.
  • 00:19:06.080 --> 00:19:09.170
  • BECAUSE YOU ARE GREAT...
  • 00:19:09.190 --> 00:19:12.270
  • YOU DO MIRACLES SO GREAT...
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:16.100
  • - I'M GRATEFUL TO BE IN VICTORY OUTREACH BECAUSE
  • 00:19:16.120 --> 00:19:18.250
  • THEY ALLOW YOU TO DO WHATEVER IT IS THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:19:18.270 --> 00:19:21.050
  • CALLED YOU TO DO.
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:23.070
  • AND WE HAVE A SPECIAL MINISTRY THAT BELIEVES IN
  • 00:19:23.090 --> 00:19:26.190
  • TWILIGHT TREASURES, THAT BELIEVES IN TREASURES OUT OF
  • 00:19:26.210 --> 00:19:29.180
  • DARKNESS, THAT BELIEVES IN GOING TO THE STREETS AND
  • 00:19:29.200 --> 00:19:33.020
  • REACHING HURTING PEOPLE, AND THAT'S MY PASSION, AND
  • 00:19:33.040 --> 00:19:36.020
  • THAT'S WHAT I DO AS OFTEN AS I CAN.
  • 00:19:36.040 --> 00:19:40.020
  • - THE GREAT THING ABOUT MY WIFE IS SHE HAS TIME, AND
  • 00:19:40.040 --> 00:19:42.150
  • SHE'S GOT A GREAT LISTENING EAR.
  • 00:19:42.170 --> 00:19:44.120
  • SHE'S AMAZING.
  • 00:19:44.140 --> 00:19:47.130
  • - I'LL CONTINUE TO SERVE GOD UNTIL HE COMES BACK OR
  • 00:19:47.150 --> 00:19:51.100
  • UNTIL I GO TO BE WITH HIM.
  • 00:19:51.120 --> 00:19:53.050
  • THAT'S JUST MY LIFE.
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:55.090
  • I WILL ALWAYS GIVE MY LIFE TO SERVING GOD BECAUSE
  • 00:19:55.110 --> 00:19:58.190
  • I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

  • JESUS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:21:18.030 --> 00:21:20.210
  • THERE'S NOTHING THAT YOU'VE DONE.

  • AND LET HIM COME IN.
  • 00:21:35.120 --> 00:21:37.180
  • SHE HAD TO COME TO THAT PLACE OF SAYING, LORD, I'M
  • 00:21:37.200 --> 00:21:39.180
  • GOING TO SURRENDER.
  • 00:21:39.200 --> 00:21:41.240
  • I'M GOING TO STOP FIGHTING YOU, AND I'M GOING TO

  • AND THEN ONCE SHE DID THAT AND ONCE YOU DO THAT, AND

  • YOU SAY, LORD, I TRIED EVERYTHING ELSE, NOW I'M
  • 00:21:48.110 --> 00:21:51.010

  • FOR YOUR SALVATION.
  • 00:22:09.250 --> 00:22:12.080
  • FIRST OF ALL, THE POWER OF GOD WILL SET YOU FREE.
  • 00:22:12.100 --> 00:22:14.270
  • HE SAYS, HE THAT KNOWS THE TRUTH SHALL BE SET FREE.
  • 00:22:14.290 --> 00:22:17.100
  • YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH SHALL
  • 00:22:17.120 --> 00:22:19.030

  • NOW YOU SEE HER ALL THE TIME WITH A BIG SMILE.

  • ADDICT, ALCOHOLIC.
  • 00:25:56.280 --> 00:25:58.290
  • I LIVED ON AND OFF THE STREETS, AND I JUST REALLY
  • 00:25:59.010 --> 00:26:02.230
  • CAME TO THE END OF MYSELF, AND I CAME TO A POINT WHERE
  • 00:26:02.250 --> 00:26:07.180
  • I REALLY STARTED TO LOSE HOPE, AND I THOUGHT I WAS
  • 00:26:07.200 --> 00:26:12.000
  • GOING TO DIE A DRUG ADDICT. I HAD HEPATITIS.
  • 00:26:12.020 --> 00:26:16.030
  • PROBABLY ONE OF THE LOWEST POINTS FOR ME IS THAT I
  • 00:26:16.050 --> 00:26:18.050
  • WAS IN THE HOSPITAL WITH BLOOD CLOTS.
  • 00:26:18.070 --> 00:26:20.090
  • THEY GAVE ME THREE MONTHS TO LIVE BECAUSE MY

  • A DRUG ADDICT.
  • 00:26:34.200 --> 00:26:36.150

  • AND FROM THAT MOMENT, I EXPERIENCED GOD.
  • 00:26:46.260 --> 00:26:49.210

  • CENTIMETER TUMOR, AND THEY SAID THE
  • 00:27:26.290 --> 00:27:30.120
  • PROGNOSIS IS AMPUTATION.
  • 00:27:30.140 --> 00:27:32.250
  • AND THEN THE LORD SPOKE TO MY HUSBAND, AND HE SAID, YOU
  • 00:27:32.270 --> 00:27:35.120
  • MUST ACCEPT WHAT I ALLOW; BUT THEY WILL
  • 00:27:35.140 --> 00:27:39.040
