We don’t choose to come into the world, but we have the power to choose where we’ll spend eternity.


At the age of 12, I accepted Jesus at the New Life Church in Rio de Janeiro, where I became part of their group and found myself.

At the age of 13, my brother, who took me to church, got married and I could no longer attend because my parents moved and I did not have any independence.

At the age of 15, I became addicted to pornographic movies. My father traveled and brought back these videotapes with him. I began looking for information on how to be like those women.

At the age of 16, I seduced a child, a 9-year-old boy.

At the age of 19, I started dating and got married at the age of 21 to my first boyfriend. We separated six months later, after I found out he betrayed me.

At the age of 22, I started sleeping with married men (everything hidden and discreet, truly sickening).

Also at the age of 22, I met my daughter’s father and we had a 2-year relationship (living together). I got pregnant and the relationship ended. We tried again, but six months later, we went our separate way. After this relationship, I began to prostitute myself with African men.

At the age of 26, I met my son’s father. We got married, and I wore a wedding dress and all. Then, the aggressions and addictions began. After moving to another state, he decided we should split up and left, taking my car and several other things. After this, I was overtaken by the idea that I wasn’t meant to be married.

I began to work as a prostitute again until I almost died after an abortion. I was never in favor of abortions, but the man lied that he was sterile. After that, I didn’t stop. I met a troubled ex-pastor, who just wanted to use me. After this relationship, I began to hear voices and see shadows. I also had panic attacks and suicidal thoughts.

In every relationship, during sex, my head spun very quickly and I was no longer the same person. After it ended, I cried uncontrollably and felt a huge void.

Today I understand that I was enslaved by an entity, because I passed through a process of deliverance on Fridays at the Temple of Solomon, with the purpose of the rose. There, you explained everything. Since I had never visited an Umbanda Center, I did not understand certain things. When the campaign ended, I started to go to the Universal Church near my house. I truly surrendered myself; I obeyed everything. I was baptized at the Temple, which was a strong experience.

My first Israel Challenge was for my spiritual life. As I walked passed you on the Altar with my children, you placed your hand over our heads and at that moment I consecrated them, giving their lives to the Lord Jesus. Then, from faith to faith, without fail, without questions, came the baptism with the Holy Spirit.
I began to have love for souls. I joined the Evangelization Group, then Godllywood, where God began to mold me. I allowed Him to break me and then rebuild me.

I’ve been an accountant for 19 years, but I quit because the company was asking me to sign off on fraudulent paperwork and I no longer wanted to do that. I encountered many obstacles; friends, family, men, everyone distanced themselves!

I dived into the Rivers of Living Water that I heard you speak about on the Altar. Today, I laugh! My children evangelize with me, my daughter is part of the Youth Group and in the same spirit, my son goes to CBC.
I’m laughing in the face of the devil and demons…

I face battles, but through campaigns, prayers and fasts, the Power of the Most High comes to my defense and brings me an answer.
My friends give me compliments, and so do my ex-husbands. I’ve even been able to forgive the man that caused me to have an abortion and I’ve asked all of them for forgiveness. I live in peace with my children. It’s just me, my children and the fourth Man in the fiery furnace.

Bishop, today marks two years since I walked through the beautiful doors of the Temple, and today I am a new woman, created by the hands of God.

From prostitute to servant. During the last 20 days, I’ve brought 21 souls to Church and they continue coming. They were all a result of an evangelization in the community.

Today, my desire, besides my Salvation, and I ask for your prayer in this favor, is to be a missionary and go wherever God sends me, because I’m happy when I’m winning souls. It’s what makes me happiest!!!!

When I heard Mrs. Fatima speak about Asia on TV, I felt the urge to fly there, if I could. But God can! I am happy wherever He puts me and uses me.
