Atlanta-What an Experience

Well, let me tell you, there was some drama trying to get here, but God worked out. About 4 days before I was suppose to get here, the guy that promised to bring me backed out. I was just in shock when texted me, not call, but texted me and started making excuses. I had to just come out and ask him if he was having second thoughts because he wouldn't say anything. Finally, he he said he didn't want to go and that he should have said no from the beginning. My thought was like, 'yeah, you should have'. I just let go and told him to have a great life. Sometimes people can be real shady, but the key is to not allow it to bother you. Anyway, my 'lil brother' and his wife, along with 2 other friends, came up in their car and I had to rent a uhaul for us to go back. However, I was here to celebrate the 4th of July with them, which was important to me.
The best part is that I am finally where I have always wanted to be and that I got to meet the woman I have wanted to meet for so long-Bishop Yvette Flunder. Bishop Flunder is the presiding bishop, of the movement known as The Fellowship. Its a movement made of of over 90 churches and ministries, throughout the world. All the ministries are ones that truly understand that God's love is for ALL people. The church conference was July 8-12 and we had a fabulous time. On Saturday night there was a concert at a local church and at the end Bishop Flunder asked all the transgender people, in the audience, to come up to the front of the church. There she prophicised into our lives. she also spoke on the things we have gone through all our lives. I knew she was speaking to me when she started talking about hearing God since we were 5, 6, 7 yrs old. She kept looking in my direction and i thought she was looking at my big brother Louis because they know each other, but come to find out she was looking at me. As my head was down and I was crying, she called for me. They pushed me to th efront. Bishop Flunder looked me in the eyes aand through my soul and asked if I was ready for my breakthrough. All I could do was shake my head yes. She told them to take my glasses, which me made me very nervous. Bishop placed her hands on my head and I fello out. Now, i have always seen this on tv and a few times in person, but never thought it was real. I can tell you, for this person, it was real. I admittingly tried to fight it, but I could feel the something running through me and it took me off my feet. I could hear her continue to speak about going out to the clubs, bars and street corners(something I have always wanted to do, but couldn't get the support) to get the transgender people and show them that God loves them. After service she held me and told me to stop being afraid of succeeding. The day after, when the final service was over, as held me and told me there is nothing strange about how I think and the things I want to do. She said those who don't understand are the one's with the problem.
With this fantastic start, I can't wait to see what else Atlanta has in store for me.
