Lady Saw ministers to ‘Back Road’ prostitute

Uncategorized December 21, 2015

Marion Hall, who for many years performed under the moniker Lady Saw, talking to journalists yesterday about her experience since converting to Christianity. Hall was speaking after attending Sunday morning service at Emmanuel Apostolic Church on Slipe Road in Kingston where was baptised last Monday night. LESS than a week after surrendering to Christ, the once raunchy deejay Lady Saw hit the infamous ‘Back Road’ in Portmore St Catherine, a strip known for open prostitution and cheap motels, to deliver a message from God to a particular lady of the night. The popular entertainer, who’s been a talking point since getting baptised last Monday, told the Jamaica Observer after Sunday morning worship at Emmanuel Apostolic Church on Slipe Road in Kingston, yesterday, that God has already started to use her. The 43-year-old, whose given name is Marion Hall, said she was in bed Saturday night when God gave her a message to give to a prostitute on Back Road (Port Henderson Road), whom she was informed recently got saved and is planning to get baptised. “…I went by Back Road ’cause that’s where He sent me and He gave me a name. For God to give me a name out of everybody’s name and… that was a unique name, not really a common one,” Hall said. “When I started asking for her, everybody was saying, ‘Yeah man. One girl weh seh she a go baptise tomorrow. She work up a da building deh.’ So all of them come and one say, ‘Me hear bout har; she jus’ give har life to God,’” Hall related.

Hall, who had gone with her brother, said it took her 10 minutes to locate the young woman. “But she say, ‘It’s not me.’ But I told her, ‘Is you God send me to,’” Hall recounted. “I prayed for the person and embraced her and said, ‘Lord, whatever you send me here to do for this person, just put words in my mouth,’ and I did what I had to do and go home.” While searching for the young woman, Hall said she heard one person laughing. She said she was not offended, as she remembered how Jesus and His disciples were also ridiculed. Hall, who decided to convert to Christianity during last Monday’s funeral service for singjay Jordan ‘J Capri’ Phillips, who died days after a motor vehicle accident, spoke about another message she received from God for a friend.“…When I tell him, he cried and I was like, ‘God, I don’t want to do this. Why you doing this God?’ For Him to use me like that after where I am coming from and what I’ve done, it shows that no matter who you are and what you have done, and your past sins, God accepts you and He has use for you,” she said. Hall said she has been getting numerous invitations from Christians to address their churches, but she is awaiting God’s direction of her movement. Asked about her Christian goals, Hall said she wants to become a minister and that God has already told her that she’s going to have her own church. Hall said that despite what critics have been saying about her, her previous baptism at the age of 12 and her previous announcements about walking with Christ, this is the “real thing”. “A nuh joke ting dis time,” she said. “Detractors, God has left me proof; every message was recorded, even the one to my publicist to cancel all my shows. I didn’t even know how I sound until they played it back,” she said. “The lady who reached out to me three months ago to say that this was going to happen, she was the first one I called.” She added: “I am feeling great, feeling so good, feeling so happy, and the message was great and I have been feeling happy since my baptism. I am more confident to speak about God and to accept Him, to praise Him in a crowd. Normally I would be shy and don’t want to praise Him or worried that I might get inna spirit and drop and embarrass myself, but it’s like it doesn’t matter right now. That’s like where my joy is, but I’m so honoured that God chose me to be a part of His flock. It is a wonderful feeling I can’t explain it right now. It’s just beautiful, it’s more comforting than being with a man or smoking.”
