Kirk is proof when JESUS our YAHUSHUA, comes into a person's heart and life, they become a NEW creature in JESUS CHRIST ! Now Kirk, is saved, Sanctified, and filled with the HOLY SPIRIT (RUACH HA KODESH) can there be a greater transformation not only on the outside but the inside of his spirit? Note the before JESUS and After JESUS conversion. His face just shines with the GLORY of GOD and no one can doubt he is the man GOD created him to be. Kirk is not ashamed of his past but uses it for JESUS CHRIST'S Praise, honor, and GLORY! and he gives hope, to others because what JESUS did for Kirk he can do for anyone else that accepts JESUS our YAHUSHUA, as LORD and SAVIOR! Stop trying to clean yourself up, instead let JESUS CHRIST Blood wash you clean again!
Below is Kirks testimony and pictures. I am so grateful the LORD brought him to me for he can reach others that I cannot reach for it takes someone that knows the pain Kirk has gone through to identify with others who suffer the same pain a transsexual and homosexual goes through. APOLLOSTARR@webtv.net (Kirk Blackden) If you don't want to email this ministry and your a transsexual or homosexual, and want to get free of that lifestyle, then Kirk welcomes your email.
My name is Kirk Blackden, I live in Seattle Washington. I'm originally from the small town of Snow Hill, in
Maryland. I was 30 years old on March 21, 2000. I grew up in a religious family and went to church on a regular
basis. When I was just ten years old, a male family friend that lived with us, began to sexually molest me. I was
afraid to tell anyone and this went on for years. When I became a teenager I lived a bisexual life style and my
relationship with the Lord suffered.
I am sharing my experience to encourage others who may still be struggling and to let them
know that there is hope in Christ Jesus, for forgiveness, deliverance and peace.

I remember meeting Kirk around the early summer of 1993. His
mother called me and asked me to come and pray for her son. She said that he was very depressed and had thoughts of
suicide. I agreed to come and meet with him. After arriving at the house that evening, I noticed someone sitting on the sofa, I
spoke to the person and continue to talk to Kirk's mother.
Kirk was very open to the Good News of Jesus and starved for love. I assured him that God loved him in spite of him being gay. He had a desire to serve God, but had experienced much judgment, condemnation, and criticism from the Body of Christ.
Kirk started coming to our Upper Room Home Meetings on Friday's and was very much
involved. He had decided that he would not cross-dress any more. Our Home Meeting Fellowship was very inter-denominational,
and one very immature, critical, self righteous believer made Kirk feel very uncomfortable. In his eyes Kirk was
not changing fast enough, plus, he had not transformed into a jock.
I remember several years ago after a late Friday night home meeting, it was about 4:00 am there was a knock at the door. I woke up rushing to the door feeling it must be an emergency. As I open the door I saw a bloody mess standing in front of me. It was Kirk. His face was filled with bruises and cuts, his hair was bloody and he had marks on his body. He stood there crying and said, I didn't know where to go. I stood in utter shock for a moment. Without thinking I grabbed him as he came in, held him and started to weep. As I wept and cried out to God for him, he began to comfort me; assuring me that he would be alright. Kirk had been repeatedly raped and beaten by several young men, and dragged through the black berry bushes. A few other brothers and I help pick out the thorns, and got him all cleaned up.
I am writing this to make true believer aware of the need to be real Christians, and to make us aware that there is a community out there that must be reached. They are the Lazarus Generation! Most of the religious world have given up on them and would rather see them die of AIDS or some horrible disease. Is that how God feels??? The next time you see a obviously gay man, a dykish woman, weird looking person, or that relative you can't seem to admit that he or she is gay (funny-queer-sick): think, what would Jesus do. See that person as a child of God, your brother, sister, son, or daughter and let them know God loves them.
God loves you in spite of what you may have gone through, even if no one
knows and you're too ashamed to tell anyone. You could be a man, woman, boy or girl. Maybe you were molested or raped and you have carried that
pain around silently suffering. Or maybe you have desires and attractions to the same sex
and you feel condemnation and guilt. Maybe past experiences or abuse have caused you not to be able to love yourself or
others properly--and you struggle with Anger.
Below is a photo of Kirk and friends (Beverly, Marcel and Vladimir) at the Feast of Tabernacles 2000 in Hawaii. Kirk is the guy in the white shirt. Look what the Lord has done!! There is nothing to hard for God. No life too broken that cannot be fixed by the Masters Hand.
