Dwayne Wade’s Mom Says No to Drugs and Yes to Ministry
Pastor JoLinda Wade is a living miracle and her ministry is now literally transforming the lives of many who would see no hope! Featured in this monthâ€™s â€œWomen at the Forefront,â€ Pastor Wade shares her powerful testimony with Gospel Today of how God transformed her life is now using her to transform others.
“God called me seven years ago, but Iâ€™ve been pastoring for three years. I started my ministry behind the walls of a penitentiary, and I was there because I did the crime. I learned that you can work wherever God has you. I just tell everybody that God had me in Holy Ghost College when I was locked up. I had the opportunity to receive Godâ€™s love.
I thank God for the place that Iâ€™m in right now. Iâ€™m a woman that came from drugsâ€”I used to drink everyday. I had my children dispersed here and there because of my choices; my life got so bad that I used to crawl up in abandoned buildings just to find a place to lay my head, but look at me now! I am hope for somebody! While I was going through, God had me on His mind. Today, all those same things are still thereâ€” the drugs and the alcohol and everything, but they donâ€™t have the same power! Nothing magical happened; all I said was, â€œYes!â€
