The Early Years
I was born in 1961 in Jasper, Alabama. At 6 months of age, I fell off a sofa and went into a coma for 6 days. Prayer warriors in my family began to pray and intercede for me. Thank God, Jesus intervened in my behalf and brought me through.
At five years of age, I was shot at several times by a great uncle who had lost his mind. Jesus kept me safe, as I hid in the house. He shot my grandmother four times and Jesus brought her back to life in the hospital after the doctors pronounced her dead.
When I was eight years old, I was almost killed in a public laundromat. I was playing hide and seek with a friend. I had climbed into a a large commercial dryer to hide. A group of thugs walked in and they saw me in the dryer. They braced the door shut and began searching for the proper change. A girl with them fought for me and begged the others not to start the machine. As they all left in a hurry, the girl ran back in and opened the door for me.
Thank you Jesus for watching over the little children.
After many accidents and near death experiences, I gave my life to Jesus at 10 years of age. I graduated from Leeds High School in Alabama in 1980. After finishing school, I was introduced to various drugs and alcohol.
I stopped worshiping God and began following the world. God continued to send people to witness to me and draw me back to Him. At age 23, I had a very successful air-conditioning business, but I did not have joy and peace.
My maintenance company repaired equipment and kept the health department happy for over 100 restaurants. I was making alot of money, but I was wasting it in the night clubs and party scene.I was headed for a rude awakening.
On April 13, 1986, I was involved in an automobile accident, a head-on collision. I was pronounced DOA at Vanderbilt University Hospital. I received numerous broken bones and injuries:
- crushed foot
- torn aorta artery
- a ruptured spleen
- a punctured lung
- broken neck
- broken ribs
- broken jaw and hip
- remained in a coma for 27 days.
Doctors advised my family to make funeral arrangements, but the prayer warriors in my family believed Jesus could raise me up.
I had an out-of-body experience. Jesus came to me and spoke to me. I sat up out of the coma. I walked out of a wheel chair 8 weeks later.
I was completely delivered from drugs, alcohol, and tobacco and filled with the Holy Ghost. I hope you get this complete testimony in book form entitled “Raised from the Dead” It is also available on cassette tape/CD/ DVD entitled “Walking Miracle Testimony.” I studied under my pastor who also evangelized for an entire year.I watched, listened, studied the Bible, and learned how to flow in the Holy Spirit. I learned how to make alter calls, and pray for people to receive from God. I began evangelizing in 1987 and started to travel conducting revivals all across the United States.
Many miracles occurred in my meetings and I started praying for people in their homes. I have prayed for 30 people in comas and 18 have awakened! Eight of those had been brain dead. Often when God delivers you from something, he births that same kind of ministry in you.
