Jessica Nakibuule is a native of Uganda and after her dad’s death when she was very young, she was raised by her widowed mother along with her three sisters and one brother. Her mother eventually remarried, but Jessica’s new stepfather was Muslim. Her mother died several years ago and Jessica continued to be cared for by her stepfather, but he passed away in 2004.
Jessica gave her life to Jesus in 2002 while watching Benny Hinn’s healing ministry and has been following the call on her life ever since. She has a strong anointing for healing and for worship, as well as compassion for the fatherless.
At her home church (Streams of Life) in Kampala, Uganda, Jessica has served in children’s ministry and as a worship leader. Through her work with the children she became aware of their needs and the needs of some single parents. Her heart was moved to support as many as she could, and at present she helps meet the physical and spiritual needs of several orphans, as well as parenting her own teenage daughter, Sasha, who is now accompanying her whenever possible on evangelistic outreaches.
The anointing is so strong during some of her worship sessions, that people in the congregation are spontaneously healed of tumors and other infirmities! She also teaches worship principles and methods at a secondary school, with the goal of helping raise a generation of passionate worshipers.
During the course of her multi-facted ministry, Jessica has had opportunity to pray for many people who have a variety of prayer needs. Many times she has received testimonies of answered prayer from families whose lives have been radically changed!
Once Jessica had a dream that God was sending her into the marketplace to lay hands on the sick. In the dream they were getting healed, with the lame walking and the dead being raised! Her strong call to healing ministry was noticed by Steve Trullinger during his crusade ministry visit to Kampala in 2005 and with her pastor’s blessing, she was publicly ordained and commissioned as a healing minister on the last night of the crusade. The reports of healings in her ministry began to come quickly, with tumors disappearing, demonic oppression loosed, tuberculosis healed, etc. Now there are literally hundreds of people who have been set free through her ministry!
Now Jessica is preparing for her launch into full-time healing evangelism and worship and has accompanied FTM on several mission trips to other regions of Africa and had organized all of our FTM Freedom Festivals in Uganda for the past several years. She has also organized and conducted several healing evangelism outreaches and Freedom Festivals herself within Uganda, with large numbers of people healed and saved. Eventually she plans to travel to other continents as the Lord raises up other passionate ministers to partner with her.
