Katy Perry’s evangelical preacher parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, are selling $20 face masks with proceeds going to help subsidize their glamorous lifestyle preaching around the world, which includes hosting ‘retreats’ at exclusive Marriott hotels.
On their website, Keith Hudson Ministries, they say they’re a ‘dynamic couple who’ve been ministering together for 40 years’ and ‘always had a strong prophetic ministry’, with Mary hosting ‘Prophetic Nights’, where she speaks in tongues and claims to heal members of the audience.
Recently they’ve been asking on their various social media platforms for ‘your donations [which] provides resources for women in shelters living in California & Hawaii.’
In return for giving $20, you’ll receive a mask with a choice of inspiring words on it such as ‘I Can, I Will’, ‘Faith’, ‘Believe’, or ‘Be Happy’ – or get three for $50.
The link to donate automatically goes to the ‘Becoming a Partner’ page, where all donations fund their religious globetrotting, which they’ve called ‘The Urgency Tour’.

It states: ‘God has given us a voice… a voice that reaches out to women in domestic violence shelters and encourages them to overcome, a voice for teenagers to rise up and help change their generation for Christ. When you partner with us, your voice joins with ours to increase the impact we can have on this generation.
‘God has called us to reach out to the world and we’ve called this outreach ‘The Urgency Tour.’ We believe that the time is now for us to do whatever we can do to reach this generation with the simple gospel.

Mary also hosts Arise Conferences all over the globe, usually in exotic and luxurious surroundings.
The Arise Conferences website states: ‘The Lord gave her a word in 2006 that He would use her to raise up bold, trailblazing women who outside think the box. Over thirty Arise conferences have empowered women in such diverse locations as Hawaii, Malaysia, France, Belgium, Panama, Switzerland and the USA.
‘Women from domestic violence shelters and drug rehabilitation homes are invited to attend and be transformed from victims to victors. Prophetic words are downloaded to Mary as she ministers throughout the congregation. Her ministry of encouragement has brought many out of darkness into His marvelous light.’

The next women’s conference is in September in Hawaii at Kaua’i Marriott Resort, a four-star hotel on the beach, where rooms cost $309 per night plus taxes, on top of the $65 to attend the event.
The following month, there’s a three-day event at Wailea Beach Resort, Hawaii, another Marriott where the most basic room costs at least $650-a-night for that time of year, plus $85 entry fee for the event.
In the blurb on the Arise Conference site, it quotes the bible that to ‘Believe his prophets and you will prosper… Join us and help encourage 40 ladies from local shelters be transformed by the word of God!’
There’s also an ‘Arise Kona’ in Hawaii planned for May next year at Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort and Spa and ‘Arise Santa Barbara’ the following month.
Any of these events can be sponsored, although it’s unclear from the Arise Conferences website where the money goes.
