Doc Jane’s missionary story is very inspiring. A young woman from Iloilo City who always dreamt of becoming a doctor and serve God through medical missions. Financial difficulty came but she never lost her faith, eventually, God granted her heart’s desires.
Now, she is serving as a frontliner and works in one of our country’s government agency as we continue to fight this pandemic.
Her heart was always for service of God and humanity. A missionary of our time.
Tell us about yourself and your journey of knowing Christ
My journey of knowing Christ started even before joining the community of Couples for Christ. My first catechists are my parents who were devout Catholics. We pray the rosary every night and go to Church as a family on Sundays. I had my first encounter with the Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Baclaran) when I was 3-years old. In my early childhood, I was introduced to a Charismatic Group –the Love Flock Community.I was also raised in Catholic schools.But my most meaningful encounter was when I joined CFC Youth for Christ in 1996. Now, I am a Doctor serving in one of the government offices here in our country.
