You’ve probably seen one of their wonderful TV commercials by now, and if you’re reading this paper one of their eye catching ads as well.

However, several churches throughout the area have been blessed to witness a three minute powerful excerpt from the show performed by the extraordinary Lakesha Wells portraying “The Hustler” and she has left church after church on their feet and blessed! Dressed in jail attire (the orange jumpsuit) at first glance one may assume she was either on the run or being escorted by the courts with special permission.

One second the church was laughing, the next their eyes were filled with tears, hands out stretched,

shouting “Thank you Jesus” as she brought them to their feet with a familiar gospel favorite “He Touched Me.”
