A SELF-CONFESSED sex worker serving time for extorting her clients has sensationally claimed to have been convicted by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Chipo Dube vowed to turn her former clients and fellow hookers to God saying the power of the Holy Spirit convicted her when one of the inmates shared a sermon during a prayer in a cell.
Dube said this on Saturday during a church service conducted by Daughters of Virtue ministries popularly known as Ndadhiniwa Group led by Prophetess Memory Matimbire.
“I lost my time and dignity loitering in the Avenues to hook men for sex. I was unaware that God had good plans for me and my family,” said Dube.
“The devil robbed me of my life and opened a door for me to be called a prostitute ndikabviswa nyadzi dzose zvekufamba ndakashama pavanhu nemumabhawa ndichitsvake mari.
“I became greedy to the extent of robbing several men who hooked me for sex by extorting them of their hard earned money supposed to help their families.
“My life has changed here in prison, police arrested me and prison officers made sure I do not escape but something happened to my soul during a prayer when one of the inmates who has since been released shared a word with me in the cell.
“The Holy Spirit convicted me and I came to my senses and realised that I am a sinner and I felt sorry for the families I robbed their money and partners who were denied their conjugal rights during my useless time in the streets hooking men for sex.
“God has spoken to me and my body is no longer filled with the power of sin and no longer craving for sex,” said Dube.
She narrated how she lured lustful men for sex at the Avenues area saying God had changed her life and could not wait to be a fisher of men upon her release in a few months to come.
“One of the inmates named Cathy shared a message with me quoting scriptures from the book of Judges where a story of Samson is written.
“Samson vakamugera vhudzi asi vakakanganwa kumudimbura musoro nekudaro vhudzi rakakura simba rake rikadzoka neniwo ndakabirwa simba rekuva nehupenyu hwangu sakazvino ndawana simba nekuda kwejeri.
“It was during her sermon and prayer when I felt convicted and the conviction was more than that executed by criminal courts.
“Ndakashandurwa mwoyo, muviri nemweya wangu ndikapihwa muono mutsva, pfungwa itsva nemweya mutsva nendangariro.
“Ndakabviswa rima mandiri nyama yangu yashanduka uye ndakawana mukana wekudzidziswa shoko ndirimuno mutorongo saka pandinobuda nyika ichashanduka neshoko rechiedza,” said Dube promising to take good news to prostitutes and lustful men.
Dube promised to be on fire for Jesus Christ alongside Prophetess Matimbire upon her release commending her for visiting them with messages of hope and prayer.
Daughters of Virtue ministries donated goods worth US$10 000 and $3000 and included sanitary pads, maize, mealie meal, cooking oil, blankets, dried fish, washing and bathing soap, tooth paste, flour and pairs of slippers.
