Sid: My guest her name is Donner Roberson and I’m speaking to her in her home in Tulsa Oklahoma. You may be familiar with her brother who has been a guest a number of times on Messianic Vision Pastor Dave Roberson and he wrote a book that if you haven’t read you better read it it’s called “The Walk of the Spirit, the Walk of Power.” And Dave literally as a new believer decided he would put in just like a work day he put in eight hours a day praying in tongues and I’ll tell you this man now walks in the Spirit. And people that have read his book have finally understood the value of praying in tongues and it just supernaturally creates a desire for people to do it and shows you exactly what your accomplishing. I can tell you testimonies of people that have gotten a hold of this book and they thought there was no ministry for them, they just thought they were going a regular person and God opened up such supernatural ministries as a result of it. But Donner it is hard to believe but you were literally one of the youngest prostitutes in America. Tell me a bit about your family growing up.
Donner: Well, we came from a broken home Sid my Mom out of fear began drinking and she became an alcoholic at a very young age and we lived in farm labor camps I guess where migrant workers lived and traveled from here to there and crops. And we lived usually in well a lot of times in just a one room shack kind of and all of us slept in the same bed. And we had no bathroom or anything in our home. But when she was drinking and stuff the fear would come and men would come and we’d get, well I got molested many times but by the time I was four she sold me to some people that couldn’t have children for $200.
Sid: My goodness, did you…of course your four years old but you still must have comprehended or did you comprehend what was going on?
Donner: Well, I just knew that I couldn’t see my brothers and sisters and I’d cry and cry for them and my Uncle Leon he couldn’t stand it anymore they said and so they come and stole me back. And then he hid me at his brother’s house which is my Uncle Fabian and that’s how I found out how much it cost because the lady came banging on the door saying “I want her back I paid 200 good dollars for her.
Sid: And then on your 6th Birthday your grandfather decided to take care of you, what happened?
Donner: Well, again Mom got in a situation where she had no money, no food and we were eating literally out of garbage cans and it was just a really hard time so my Grandfather came, which is my Mom’s Dad and he got us and he got us. And he got us a big box of groceries, chicken and all of that stuff and I thought he did it just for my Birthday and so he immediately became my hero. And by December that was in November and by December he began molesting me; I was devastated because he really was the Apple of my eye.
Sid: And he by about the age of ten you were starting to react to all of this stuff that was happening to you and you were actually getting kind of mean and how did he try to control you?
Donner: Well with Grandpa it could be several different ways I mean he was forever yelling at us and telling us how dumb we were. It was so hard even on my oldest brother that way, but Dave when he would kick you, he’d walk by and kick you and call you lazy and stupid and he had a little hand plows and we used to work in the field with hand plows and different things. But if you really got out of control he would threaten to put you in an orphanage and/or he would kill your favorite pet because we lived on a farm.
Sid: No wonder when you were fifteen you met the love of your life but it didn’t work out that way, tell me about it.
Donner: No it didn’t work out I was trying to escape and when you’re trying to escape something and you don’t know the Lord you make really bad decisions and since I was taught that basically I was told I would never be able to wear a wedding dress or anything like that I was kind of a shame already I didn’t feel like it mattered what I did and so when I got pregnant he ran out. And it was extremely difficult because he was half Filipino and my Mom was more angry that he was half Filipino than the fact that I got pregnant before I was married so then it was just escalated from bad to worse.
Sid: Well they really, your mother really didn’t want you to carry the baby I mean did she really start hitting you in your stomach to kill the baby?
Donner: Well, first of all she tried sending out people from an orphanage to intimidate me to give him up and then at early stages she tried to talk me into getting an abortion and I wouldn’t do that either. I was very stubborn and then when I was eight months pregnant that was about when Kennedy got assassinated Mom was drinking and she tried to hit me in the stomach. She said that “It should have been me or my bastard child that died, not the Kennedy. And I was devastated to the point that they almost me when I did have him because I was in shock and trauma and my mom and them wouldn’t stay with me even during the labor; they just dropped me off at the hospital and left me.
Sid: Donner as I’m hearing how you were raised human’s must have a lot of survival instinct you shouldn’t have even made it to but of course by sixteen you decided you have got the solution, you got married and you would live happily ever after but that is not the way the script read did it.
Donner: No, he was angry himself and he never could accept my son you know he just couldn’t and he would get very physically and mentally abusive and so that marriage only lasted two years and produced one more child.
Sid: So now your a single parent two children not much going for you so you do what a lot of people do you got into drugs. And in fact someone slipped an LSD on you and what affect did it have?
Donner: I thought that I was going to die to be honest with you I had hallucinations. I dreamed a friend of mine, I didn’t dream I hallucinated I guess that a friend of mine that had died called me on the telephone and my hair was down to my waist in those days, I saw black widows in my hair and I almost pulled all my hair out. I quit driving for a year because I kept thinking people were jumping out in front of me and it was a very trying time.
Sid: But then why did you get into witchcraft?
Donner: Well, when I was a child I had a lot of prophetic dreams, you know my younger brother when I was in the third grad I dreamed he went to war with an Asian type people but I didn’t know being that young I didn’t know who. And when he was eighteen he was off to Vietnam but this intimidated and scared some of my relatives; one uncle in particular. And so he would accuse me of being a witch and I think that’s how I slipped into it because it would put fear into him and then he wouldn’t hit you or anything, you could make him run. So that’s how I learned to intimidate.
Sid: Now did you get pretty deep into witchcraft?
Donner: Yes, I did.
Sid: And what was your purpose, what was your objective?
Donner: It was self preservation, I didn’t want people to hurt me anymore.
Sid: But what about the reverse, we’re you trying to get back at people through your hexes and things?
Donner: Some there was some I really tried and I was doing well with it I mean things were happening to those people I could unleash demons and they could go do things to them. And then I targeted Christians even because they would come up judgmental judging because my Mom drank the way she had and they were you know not very kind people so I would pray against Christians too. And when they would try to preach I’d even sick my dog on them, which weighed about 100 and something pounds.
Sid: My goodness things were going from bad to worse with you and your behavior became pretty violent.
Donner: Yeah, I was…unfortunately I can honestly say I used to really put fear in people. I could terrify some of the best.
Sid: You actually shot at people and stabbed people.
Donner: I never stabbed anyone I cut them with a glass which is the same thing, I mean I made them bleed,but it was when they wouldn’t leave me alone or anything and I’d tell them to take their hands off of me and he did not it. So I hit him with a… I was in a bar and I hit him with half a glass of beer and I cut him their eyebrow and on down to their cheek.
Sid: Did you see much purpose in living?
Donner: No except to raise my children and I tried not to do a lot of things in front of them but I was still pretty volatile.
Sid: I tell you what Mishpochah we’re going to pick up here right at this point on tomorrow broadcast with Donner but this is such a miraculous, miraculous deliverance. And one of the reasons she got free is she learned of the value of praying in unknown tongues. And then a few years later she was reunited with her brother Dave Roberson who as you know wrote the book “The Walk of the Spirit” and the Walk of Power.” And this book explained what she was doing in her life but there are ministries waiting for some of you right now…I know people and in fact Donner was telling me before we went on the air people that have been set free from so many things by praying long hours in the Holy Spirit…
