Pauline’s Story - We Cannot Outgive God

Pauline is retired from medical practice and also medical equipment support. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, and attends The Summit Church with pastor J.D. Greear. She has been on two mission trips with Global Hope India. She grew up in a Christian family and didn't really have her own faith until some years later. She believes that Jesus is the reason that she can move, breathe, and have life. The sacrifice that Jesus has made and the grace that has been poured on her has made her want to reach out and give that to others as well. 

She saw missions as an opportunity to use her skills as a nurse. It was an avenue that she saw where she could tangibly give back and become involved in people's lives. She saw that as a gift from God and it seemed like a glaring opportunity to just say yes. Pauline talked about her experience the first time she went on a mission trip to India. She remembered feeling very overwhelmed when God was calling her to focus on India. She saw so much need, so much opportunity, and they can only do so much. But God was very good and showed them that experience as a catalyst for life change and transformation. 

Pauline shared her favorite story from a mission trip where they established a connection with the families that came to the orphanage. This relationship led to the families accepting Christ and being baptized. Aside from helping people with their illness, it was the long-term impact they had in these families' lives that resonated with her most. This is a reflection of how one plants seeds and harvests seeds for the gospel. 


One of the takeaways that she had from a mission trip was the power of prayer. Pauline shared why she is now a prayer warrior for missions. For she has seen how giving some pills and other medications can help with physical healing, but there is still that greater need for more than just physical healing. And this only comes about when they realize their need for Christ, and that can only be exposed through prayer. The reason that we're so passionate about prayer, the reason that they lay hands on everyone and pray with them before the clinic is because salvation belongs to the Lord.


Pauline talked about how working with Global Hope India has made her realize that she cannot outgive God. She continues to be amazed at what God can do with what little she gives. There is nothing that returns void when the gospel is involved. She hopes that when she gets to heaven, she can look around and see that people that are there as a result of some of the work that she has done or enabled. And she is just grateful that God has put her in this place and in this season.
