Pricilla’s Story - From Tragedy to Triumph

Pricilla works as an Emergency Room nurse at the University Medical Center of El Paso’s Level 1 Trauma Center. She grew up in Sacramento, California and has very strong ties to her Mexican heritage. She is a solo traveler, an adventurer, and an adrenaline junkie, and she loves the Dallas Cowboys. As a child, she remembered not knowing God at all and not having any kind of relationship with Him. She went through tumultuous and traumatizing experiences not just as a child but as an adult as well.

She was recently exposed to extreme hatred when the El Paso mass shooting occurred on August 3rd 2019, where a gunman shot and killed 22 people and injured 24 others at a Walmart store in El Paso. Pricilla talked about how her church’s pastor, Pastor Terry Gray of the Cavalry Chapel Sun City, went to the ER and prayed for the victims. That was God’s way of shining His light on a dark day in El Paso. That experience made her realize that God was the alpha and the omega. Everything was in God’s hands and He was always watching over His children.

Pricilla remembered how God was really calling her to become a nurse. She talked about a vision that she had while she was in her car and she suddenly saw herself being surrounded by many children. She then promised God that she gets accepted and finish her nursing program, she will go on medical missions. She firmly believed that if He puts something in your heart so strong, you can run away from it or you can run towards it with all of your heart. And when you trust God, you can really do anything.

Going on missions with Global Hope India gave Pricilla the sense of that vision being fulfilled. She saw children in need of a safe place and hope, and it was an honor to pray with them. She also interacted with women from red-light districts and prayed with them. She firmly believes that when God plants things in your life, He gives you a sense of direction. You can open doors for others to make them see what they would not have seen if you did not go on missions. Missions change your future. Trees are sprouting and it’s like a little garden is growing in her heart. And she can’t wait to see what grows because all these different seeds are planted by the different things that she has seen in the missions.
