Amy Lee Kemp was born in March of 1975, in Cleveland Texas. In the summer of 1998 at the age of 24, living in rebellion for the past 8 years, she found herself in a pit of darkness, having rejected Jesus at every opportunity. In hopeless and utter despair, with death knocking at the door, Amy cried out to God for help, and for the first time she came face to face with the person of the Holy Spirit. As the presence of peace filled the room, she called out with a plea, saying, “God, if you will rescue me from this life of emptiness and drugs, I will give you my life.” Instantly, the tangible presence of love was standing at her side, rescuing her from the grasp of death. As the tears began to roll down her face, she began to recall a childhood song that she had learned under her mother’s teaching, and softly began to sing, “Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so”. As she sang, she felt the loving arms of Jesus wrap around her, holding her tightly, removing every fear, and giving her the love she so desperately longed for. He had come to rescue, wash her clean and give her a new life, the life of peace she so desired.
In the same year, Amy was driving her car to meet her parents for pizza and as she pulled onto the highway the Lord showed her a vision. In the vision, she was standing on a platform outdoors, preaching the gospel to a multitude of people in attendance. In an instant, the Holy Spirit revealed to Amy that she was called as an Evangelist to preach the gospel of Jesus.
