Nicola Carara is on a Mission with Her Book, Purpose to the Pain
< 1 day ago
As a missionary living above the area dubbed 'The Golden Triangle' in St Andrew, Nicola Carara finds that several of her relatives and neighbours are concerned about her mingling with the residents in the inner city who have been the focus of her ministry for the last four years.
Carara said working with the residents of these depressed communities has been mutually beneficial. While scores of residents benefit from the food, educational materials, spiritual guidance, counselling sessions and furniture she gives them, she finds that interacting with them has enhanced her life.
An excerpt from her book, Purpose to the Pain:
"Although I have known Nicola Carara for over thirty years, we really became friends in the last two. From growing up in St. Andrew, Jamaica, pursuing a career in television production in the U.S.A., then returning to Jamaica to lecture at N.C.U. Mandeville, to now working as a missionary to Parade Gardens in Kingston, Jamaica, Nicola’s life has taken many turns. It demonstrates what it means to answer God’s call wholeheartedly. Her life with Christ has not been easy, as she has had to face physical, financial and other hurdles. Nonetheless, her life has been a testimony to God’s grace."
"Purpose to the Pain is not a pretentious book. It is easy to read and down-to-earth. It is not the self-help book that tells you the formula to make over your life all by yourself. This book shows us that life with Christ is intriguing, challenging, heart-warming and ultimately fulfilling. With humor, poignant expression and godly wisdom, Nicola guides you on a journey that will surely bring you closer to the Lord." ~ Lisa Downie, September 18, 2016
