She returned to the streets again and I believe now that they have divorced. I have ministered to her many times throughout the years. I have ministered to her inside and outside of the Durham County Jail. She looks twenty years older today because of the extreme rough life she has lived. She has lived as a prostitute, addict, and even ventured into lesbianism while in jail. The devil is destroying her life!
John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
This week I was driving down Holloway Street and was led to make a turn I did not intend to make. It is something how the Lord will lead me to where he wants me to be. After I had made the turn onto Spruce Street who was there but this woman again put right in my path. She immediately started waving at me. We have developed a friendship over the years. As she came to the passenger window I put it down. She came up and greeted me, along with the greeting came the smell of alcohol filling the van. It was 10:30 in the morning!
I began talking to her once again about how the enemy is trying everything to take her out because of the potential that she has to do things for the Kingdom. I looked into her eyes and said "one day if you do not repent and get right with Jesus you will lift your eyelids to find yourself in hell for all eternity". I told her that she knows what the Word says about knowing and not doing.
2Peter 2:20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the Holy commandment handed on to them.
This woman could be the poster child for the above scripture. Each time she has fallen then got on track only to fall again her condition and circumstances have gotten worse. I told her that she had to get out of East Durham before the devil was successful in totally taking her out. She knew some of the prostitutes that have been murdered. She actually broke down in tears telling me that she is now to the point that she has nothing left. She has no family members that have anything to do with her. She said that she has lost everything that she owned. I told her that all she has to do is make the decision to go and get help and we will help her. She asked for another one of my cards. I also gave her a McDonald's card and a pair of gloves to cover her freezing hands. Several days have passed now and I still have not heard or seen her. Please pray for this woman! Her name is Carmelita.
