I am Never Jacqueline Gracious a midwife by profession and currently serving

The call to serve
I responded to the call to serve as a missionary last year December 2022 immediately I completed my training as a midwife. After reaching home back from School, I had drawn a lot of strategy for my targeted goals which all of them needed önancial support by this year and next year, but in Janjanuary 2023, I received a call from my best friends Rev. Catherine whom I call my mum requesting me to join my friend Charlotte in Kampala at GLA’s office for a missionary internship opportunity. Knowing very well that the school requires us to do 3 weeks internship before we pick our results so I thought it was only a medical internship of which I thought of participating for 3-6weeks, so I reported only to experience more of Biblical teachings throughout which I didn’t mind because I am a born-again Christian. Then I began to battle with the Lord on how to decide for me whether to quit or to continue even if it was going to take the whole year and interrupt my plans, so I kept praying to God then one day during a session of PARTNERSHIP ” I made up my mind to quit as I was praying, I then heard a voice telling me to Read “Isaiah: 6:1-8, the voice spoke 3 times I knew it was God so read it and I learned that God was looking for someone to send to deliver his word then Isaiah had to respond that he could go. I am grateful to God for speaking to me and I have dedicated this year to thanking God for this far he has brought me.
in serving the community are both spiritual and physical. Having prayer session with clients most especially during Antenatal care service, Immunization of babies and even when treating the sick one so that God can guide me as well as heal them. I also participate in leading the Church activities with my colleague. At the church, I and my colleague have organized outreach activities to nearby schools for evangelism. We need supportive prayers to bring more people to the churches especially the youths. I thank God for the grace to carryout guidance and counseling sessions with ANC mothers and married couples, and to offer safe delivery services by the help of the Almighty God who is the author of life.
have experienced God a lot mostly during the GLA training sessions and even in the öeld when leading the congregation on how to live there life and more during counseling of married couples basing on the fact that I always point them to God in all their problems. One outstanding story is during an open air prayer outside the market square where the community turned up and we hard great moments of worship and praying for the sick who experienced healing and deliverance.
