The singer who battled a drug addiction for close to five years until she got a break down, is now back on her feet and ready to serve the Lord.
On Saturday December 1st, she stepped up the pulpit at Miracle Center Cathedral, during the 77 days of glory fellowship and gave her testimony.
“I am very glad to be here today to thank God for giving me a second chance at live, after I went through a very dark time.
Up today, I can’t believe I am still alive and whatever chance I have, I will thank God,” she said.
Chandiru who then sang Hillsong United’s ‘Awesome God’ said she would tell everybody that God lives.
“I am going to tell every body that he lives, and because he lives, I live.”
The church leader Pastor Robert Kayanja welcomes her into the church and encouraged her to sing.
“Often times, we lack the opportunity to serve, and the greatest challenge we have is not because we do not want to serve, but because we don’t have the opportunity. If you ever feel like serving God, come here and sing in the church, because that is the gift that God gave you. There is a platform here for you,” he said to her.
Desire Luzinda offers a shoulder
Fellow musician Desire Luzinda, who recently gave her life to Christ encouraged Chandiru to fight on.
“The other day I saw #Jackiechandiru on 77Dogs giving her life to Christ and while many people focused on what she looked like, I was amazed by her dauntlessness to rise above and fight again. There is no greater joy than that of falling and rising up. To anyone going through a tough time, it does not matter how many times you fall but how you rise up, pick up the pieces and fight is all that matters. The world will scorn you but look to a brighter picture. It is well Jackie and may the God that led you to this decision lead you through it all.
If you ever need someone to talk to, a friend I will be right at your heel.”
