Believing in something greater and rejection of man is not the end but the beginning.
Bio of Caroline Aden
I was born in Uganda in 1975 in Apache. This period of life led to traumatic memories about growing up in Uganda before coming to the UK in 1990.
I came to London in 1990, attended part of secondary school here, and went to Southbank University and the University of Greenwich, where I attained 2 degrees. After graduation, I progressed quickly in my career as a recruitment officer. In 2018 I joined the National Health Service (NHS). I had a progressive career.
From the age of six, I was aware of God’s presence. I would spend several hours in deep prayer (what I now know as speaking in tongues). I would wake up feeling fresh as though I had an 8-hour sleep, even though this was not the case. I have experienced many personal encounters with the Lord, heavenly visitations, miracles, and healing, including a gold crown and endless financial blessings.
In 2017 my calling into ministry became more real; the power of God fell over me three nights in a row. Although this had been a part of my life experience with God, I dare say this time, three nights consecutively, left me unable to move. I knew God had called me into ministry with all my heart, but I had to go through the “process.”
On the 3rd April 2018 at 8.15 during “Hungry for God” (my church’s weekly intercessory prayer meeting), a place we hunger and thirst for more of the Holy Spirit and the manifestation of all of God’s goodness. My Pastor started praying something seemed different there was groaning for souls that I felt connected with instantly. It was as though he was decreeing rather than praying, and as he prayed, I agreed in the spirit as we continued praying. Finally, I surrendered ALL to the Lord. I took a deep breath ‘and said: “Lord, here I am, may I be the one worthy to win the 10,000 thousand or millions for you”. And, immediately, worship leaflets flew in the air, and I was hit with the Fire of God, and all I could feel was the vibration of the building. I don’t know how long I was under the covering of the Holy Spirit. Then, suddenly, there was a jolt in my stomach, which pushed me backward and ended. I found my way back to my dazed. Everyone had a look on their faces, which I cannot even describe. I remember the voice I have known and heard in church almost all my life. My Pastor asked, “are you ok,” and I replied, “yes,” shaking and apologising. I transformed from that moment. God had not finished with me yet; walking in the glory of God was another fantastic experience.
On 16th January 2019, the Lord spoke clearly to me to leave my job within the National Health Service (NHS) to go and serve Him. I was obedient and resigned immediately. People thought I had lost my mind. I had no job with kids to feed and not much in savings. My pastors offered me a volunteer position within the church. After a few months, his best friend offered to fund my role, for which I am eternally grateful. I was offered another role with another organisation for two days. It provided the flexibility I needed to dive into the word and read. I have never been to Bible college or had any training in delivering sermons. When God calls you, He equips you only if you are willing and obedient. I will continue to deliver His word as pure as He imparts it. God has taught me all I know by Himself; all the glory be given unto Him alone.
I have been a member of Christ Church for over 25 years, supported by my Pastor and his wife. I have been involved in many local evangelistic outreaches and have seen many people healed, delivered, and set free. And many praying the salvation prayer and giving their life to Christ. I was happy and content with street evangelism, but all changed in June 2020.
On 6th June 2020, God gave me the commission to evangelise. Bearing in mind, this was something I was involved in within my local church, sadly due to Covid-19, had been suspended. So when the Lord spoke to me to evangelise, I thought? “Lord, you have a sense of humour! Are we in lockdown? How is this possible? The Lord immediately replied, “social media.” Although now, to some, social media is a place of opportunities and connection for me, I was filled with dread at the thought of joining Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram to evangelise. I had never joined Facebook at that moment. Yet, God was telling me to do just that. My initial reaction was deep dread and fear, which were followed by sweats. I had a few minutes of dialogue with the Lord, hoping He would change His mind. Still, of course, anyone with experience in hearing from the Lord knows precisely who the winner will be. So reluctantly agreed, and my girls set up my accounts on Facebook and YouTube.
Our first video was live on 9th June, and we had over 200 views within a few hours; this was encouraging. Then fear set in at the thought of negative comments. The Lord reassured me with Deuteronomy 31:6. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you”.
It has been such an encouraging season. I have connected with many people worldwide and many leaders from ‘The John Maxwell Leadership programmes.’
The Lord spoke this word over me recently; “Just as David used the stone and sling to bring down Goliath, so shall my word be as you release it, it will not return to Me void.” I hope this word has encouraged you also as you continue in humble obedience to God.
I am a sinner who did not deserve anything from God, but He gave me Himself and called me to be His servant. What a privilege!
Here ends the short synopsis of Caroline Aden Ministries, which God launched on 6th June 2020.
