Jane Pimenta: Writer of the Year 2018
I am married, with two children and four grandchildren. In 2001, one afternoon, while at a retreat at Potta, I felt the Lord asked me to give his Word on email (A few years earlier I studied the Word at Gregorian Seminary). That night in the Potta chapel, the Lord gave me the message on Isaiah 49:6. The second part of that verse captured my attention but I could not comprehend it... finally, I ignored those words thinking it was not for me...
With the prompting of the Holy Spirit, on August 21st 2001, I phoned 7 people and asked them if I may send them the Word of God on email. They all agreed...they liked what I sent. They sent my reflections to their contacts. Then, more people's emails were given to me and they willingly forwarded my messages. I have not had a break in this ministry from the day I started.
As emails from UK, USA, Canada, Singapore, Gulf Countries, Australia, cities in India began to come to me in appreciation I suddenly thought of the Lord's Word in Is 49:6 "A light to the nations." God's Word was reaching many people of different countries and they were beginning to read the bible and pray...
As of today, I am actively involved in my church. I teach the Bible every Thursday and I am also a part of the Women's Cell Group. The Holy Spirit guided me along the way and I am happy that I answered the Lord, "Here I am, a handmaid of the Lord."
