About the AuthorJacqueline Jackson loves the Lord and has a burning desire to please Him. She has worked in the health care field for more than fifteen years. She feels called to evangelize those whom God puts in proximity to her. Married for more than twenty years to the late Elder Leonard Jackson Sr., she is both a mother and a grandmother. She has sat on multiple planning committees and consumer advisory boards, and for the past seven years has been a planning committee member of a faith community outreach project sponsored by the state health department called On Common Ground.While she was on bed rest one day, she was watching a TV program about feeding children in Africa. The program showed babies who were abandoned by parents infected with the HIV virus. The organization that sponsored the show had established houses for the abandoned babies called abandoned baby centers (ABCs). On the program, people talked about how the church kept silent concerning HIV/AIDS. As I lay in bed saddened by the babies I saw, I felt an indignation rise up inside of me. With a very pompous attitude, I muttered under my breath, "God, it's a shame how the church has kept silent regarding this subject." The Lord quickly replied, "Yes, you have remained silent for seven years."Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.Psalm 94:17
