UMPA turned my life around
"A complete change of my life by a great knowledge gotten from prolife"
For a long time I was not receiving Holy Communion and this paralyzed me spiritually though I was attending daily mass.
My name is NPM and I am a nurse by profession I stay at Matugga and I would like to share with you the benefits I got from UMPA. In the first place I would also like to thank Dr. Sandra and everyone who has been working tirelessly to see that Pro-life work goes on well and mostly His Grace the late Bishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga who started this mission.
I came in contact with this organization 11years ago for the first time in my life when the director visited our parish. She had come to sensitize our parish about Pro-life and I was among the many people who attended the session. By then I was 38years old. I was disorganized by cohabitating. I was " married" to a man with whom I have 3 children and I was going to church daily but not receiving Holy Communion but I had the desire of receiving the Holy Eucharist but I couldn't and this was a very difficult experience for me though later life changed when I joined and started reading about pro-life facts.
Let me share with you some of the facts that I learnt about life but my story will continue;
I learnt that life begins at conception, and all human beings were created in the image of God and the right to life is a fundamental right to every human being and any attempt to take away somebody's life at any stage is simply murder therefore, since life begins at the moment of conception, until the moment of natural death it has infinite value and Dignity; that is sacred because it remains forever in special relationship with the creator who is the only Lord of life and death.
The Catholic Church also teaches us that a breach of this sanctity and an attempt to interrupt life is a mortal sin.
For a long time I didn't know all those facts though I was a nurse because to me a baby in a mother's womb was a fetus according to the scientific books and I couldn't take life in the womb very serious as I take it now. Now that I know the sanctity of life I cannot allow a woman who wants to abort her child go without getting my counseling and after knowing this it brought me very near to God and this helped me to bring others to Jesus. I understood that if I could tell others that we are all important from conception until natural death and that we have a relationship with God which we need to keep, it can help people not destroy their life or put their life in danger since they are important to God who created them in his image and I use this as my path to Holiness and to bring others to God however it's not only the above that Pro-life taught me as I told you earlier that I have learnt a lot.
