Tarot Card Reader Gives Life To Jesus in New Orleans!


As I walked by her tarot card table in New Orleans' Jackson Square around midnight, Audrey called out, "What is RAVEN?" I turned to see a young woman seated at a tarot card and psychic reading table. Heading back towards her I began sharing with her about our ministry in reaching the lost and dying for Jesus.
.
I was quite suprised at her interest in the subject matter (as I have had numerous confrontations with tarot card and voodoo practioners in the French Quarter). As I shared the Word of God with her you could immediately see her coming under conviction. She told me, "I know that I need Jesus in my life too."
.
Giving her the plan of salvation she responded by pointing to her table of enchantments and saying, "I know that THIS is not compatible with serving God is it?" Within a few minutes she was praying with us to recieve Christ into her heart!
.
The next thing somewhat SHOCKED me! She gathered up all of the enchantments (tarot cards, crystals, and figurines) and wrapped them in the table cloth and gave them to me! "Here--get rid of this. I'm done with it", she said as she stood to her feet. Soon she was folding up the table and chairs and giving them away too!
.
We met with her the next day and are going to be working with here to get her solidified in the faith! Please keep her in your prayers as she also has a 10 month old and 3 year old to take care of as well. That table and those cards were here livlihood---and she was willing to leave all to follow Jesus!
