Jackie Pullinger

Jackie Pullinger speaks at St Mary’s East Molesey. Jackie is one of the UK’s best known Christians. Originally a classical musician from Surrey, she went to Hong Kong as a young woman and started sharing the love of Jesus Christ with gangsters, addicts, prostitutes, street sleepers and prisoners. She began to see heroin addicts set free from their drugs without the usual withdrawal symptoms through the healing power of the Holy Spirit and praying in tongues. Most went on to live new lives in Christ and many have gone to other countries in Asia to share what Jesus has done. Her work was recognised by the Hong Kong government who gave her some land for a campus which now ministers to 200 residents (ex-addicts and poor people) at any one time – and operates as a church for many more. She has been awarded an MBE by the Queen and an honorary doctorate by Hong Kong University. Her books Chasing the Dragon and Crack in the Wall have been read by thousands all over the world.
