Texas Evangelist Christi L. Henderson’s awe-inspiring book emerges as a stage play ‘Just as God said it would’

A MAKING HEADLINE NEWS EXCLUSIVE

DUNCANVILLE, Texas — We begin with a rather fascinating Biblical passage, one that, all things considered, is especially befitting for this feel good story involving Christi L. Henderson.

It goes something like this:

SHE TOLD Y’ALL — Having said time and again in recent months that her book would eventually become a play, Christi L. Henderson had ultimately joined forces with prominent playwright and fellow Evangelist, Elder Kasha Hunt of KO Productions, who emerged as the mastermind behind the hit play, Removal Of The Mask.

As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations, before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

A familiar, awe-inspiring passage that is housed in Romans 4:17, it is one that, much to Henderson’s delight, is appropriate for what undoubtedly is unfolding right before her very eyes.

“My mission is to give hope to those who feel there is no hope,” Henderson, 49, a Dallas/Fort Worth-area evangelist, told Making Headline News this week.

The Removal Of The Mask stage play will debut with two showings on May 19 at the historic W. E Scott Theatre, located at 3505 West Lancaster Avenue in nearby, Fort Worth. Show times are 2 and 7 pm CST.

The mission to which Henderson is alluding is the one about which God had strategically birthed in her through her informative, tear-jerking, spiritually gut-checking book entitled, “Unmasking The Pain: Overcoming The Spirit Of Rejection.”

A little more than seven months removed from the much-anticipated release of her book, Henderson not only called those things which be not as though they were but, to her credit, such a spiritual prophesy has come full circle, considering her exhilarative written document has been constructed into a stage play, one that figures to take the Body of Christ by storm.

THE FACE OF THE PLAY — Kasha Hunt is an Author, Playwright, Motivational and Conference Speaker, Award-Winning Radio Show Host and Evangelist.

Now we know why…we know why the above Biblical passage is especially befitting for this feel good story involving a woman whom, at the end of the real day, can greatly attest to what it’s like to weather arguably the darkest chapters of her life — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

The Removal Of The Mask stage play will debut with two showings on May 19 at the historic W. E Scott Theatre, located at 3505 West Lancaster Avenue in nearby Fort Worth.

Show times are 2 and 7 pm CST.

As expected, Henderson is extremely vivacious, considering that about which she had previously spoken into the atmosphere has suddenly come to fruition.

“(This play) will allow people to see that no matter what curveballs life has thrown at you, no matter if you’ve been rejected, hurt, abandoned, rape, molested, abused, etc., God is able to heal and deliver you and restore you back unto Him, and use our testimonies to let others know there’s hope in Jesus,” said Henderson, explaining the purpose for stage play, yet sounding very much like she’s giving a sermon.  “Sometimes it’s your testimony that saves someone else’s life.”

Let the church say Amen.

Errr, anyways, back to the story.

A little more than seven months removed from the much-anticipated release of her book, Henderson not only called those things which be not as though they were but, to her credit, such a spiritual prophesy has come full circle, considering her exhilarative written document has been constructed into a 13-cast-member stage play, one that figures to take the Body of Christ by storm.

While Removal Of The Mask depicts an assortment of Henderson’s personal experiences, she said the slew of messages she aspires to send to the masses are some whereby she hopes they will apply to their lives daily.

“The play is based on the book I wrote, which is my own personal testimony of my life…how I dealt with so many things in my life and walked around acting as if everything was alright so people wouldn’t know I had been raped, molested, rejected from my father at birth,” Henderson explained. “I went through a mentally abusive marriage and abandonment, which drove me to be in relationships with women.”

Still, despite the array of turmoil and downtrodden developments that, at times, had left Henderson questioning her very existence, what she had ultimately discovered is that no one could give her the kind of joy and wholeness to life the way God can.

All of which practically sums up why this stage play makes so much sense in this, the modern-day church era.

“What inspired me to turn the book into a play was I’ve always loved Tyler Perry plays, because most of his plays were based upon real events that happen in real life,” Henderson said. “When I would go see his plays, I always came out with hope and knew that there was hope in any situation and you can recover and move on from it.”

Interestingly, even upon the release of her book, Henderson recalled people often prophesying to her that a play would soon be forthcoming.

Look at God, showing off as only He could.

KEEPIN’ IT 100 — While Removal Of The Mask depicts an assortment of Henderson’s personal experiences, she said the slew of messages she aspires to send to the masses are some whereby she hopes they will apply to their lives daily.

“I was also prophesied to by many people that the book would become a play,” Henderson, an accomplished Texas businesswoman who is the CEO of Henderson’s Financial Consulting, said. “And as people started to read it, they would say the same thing and I prayed about it, and the Lord confirmed it to me and I reached out to KO Productions about my vision.”All of which practically sums up why this stage play makes so much sense in this, the modern-day era.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

It wasn’t too much long after the release of Henderson’s book that a stage play had broken out — broken out much like some much-needed praise break.

IN THAT GODLY ORDER — “I was also prophesied by many people that the book would become a play,” Henderson, an accomplished Texas businesswoman who is the CEO of Henderson’s Financial Consulting, said. “And as people started to read it, they would say the same thing and I prayed about it, and the Lord confirmed it to me and I reached out to KO Productions about my vision.”

“Kasha Hunt bought the book on Amazon,” Henderson recalled. “She read it and said we need to make this happen and she did.”

Now with the play’s debut just weeks away, Henderson has deemed it essential to call others things which be not as though they are.

Among those things: She’s expecting a massive turnout for both shows.

“I believe that when God brings us out of various situations, it gives you compassion for others who are going through what we went through,” said Henderson, who’s been active in ministry for more than 23 years. “I know how broken and hurt I was, so I want to bring hope to others who are hurting.”

All of which practically sums up why this stage play makes so much sense in this, the modern-day church era.
