Imagine a former building used for sexual exploitation, violence, immorality, and every kind of degradation imaginable, now hosting the presence of God. That’s precisely what is happening at 5818 SW Frwy in Houston. The story below is a recent example of just that.
Last Thursday around 4pm a lady pounded angrily on our front door. Our staff members cautiously opened the door not knowing whether she would be violent. Immediately she said her soon-to-be ex-husband had frequented Angela Spa, the former brothel in this location. She proceeded to warn our staff members – who she thought were prostitutes – that they needed to be tested for STDs as her husband had brought them home to her! Our staff quickly cleared up her misunderstanding and brought her inside. Once inside they prayed for healing and ministered to her. She chose to receive Jesus, turn her life around, and release forgiveness to the women and her husband. Afterwards she declared she felt healing in her body and had never felt peace like that before! Halelujah!!! Only the Lord can flip immorality into redemption!
We believe that the Lord is allowing us to have a taste of the kingdom of God advancing, taking ground in the most sexualized-district in the city of Houston.
