The sound of the evangelical leaders voice was coming through the doors of the church, and people were heading inside after running outside for a good while. It had been raining so the smell of wet wood was everywhere. They came in one by one, the pastor was behind the podium preaching about souls being saved.


Lisa calmly sat in the front row and cried. She was familiar with the sermons, but it was important to her on this night because her boyfriend was getting his soul saved. He was getting born again.

She looked up at her kids one day while she was lying on the floor in a crying fit, and told them that the devil is real. And she is going to kick it out of our world. Her kids could see the sparkle return in her eyes, back to when everything was ok. It gave them a feeling of hope. She rose from the ground and started a life of missionary work that took her to the devil's playground.


Over the years she kicked some devil’s out of this world. Some would leave with a little fight, but others would take a lot of time. But this one…..this one ………...
