Hi, my name is Yvonne I. Wilson. I am a born again believer and a license Minister of the gospel currently residing in the Virgin Islands. I am also a certified RN, who nursed for 10 years and although I am no longer in direct practice in that profession, I continue to remain in the health care industry as the Materials Manager of the main hospital here on the island. Among my many accolades, I hold a Dip.Business Management and an Executive MA Business Management. I am currently a member of the Health Services Authority Building Properties and Procurement Committee.
I started blogging back in January 2012 at Empowerment Moments Blog which is my online ministry to share the word of God worldwide to equip and empower believers in order for them to be transformed by God’s supernatural power for lasting change; that they may operate in dimensions of unprecedented power and dominion; that God’s word through me will heal, and encourage others to discover their God given purpose and so live life to their fullest; to fully embrace ALL humanity, especially the hurt, wounded and emotionally scarred.
My ministry through this blog really came at a very low point in my life and was born out of much adversity, persecution and rejection. I was left feeling defeated and shrunk back by fear. A voice deep within me kept crying out aloud and there was really no one else to turn to but God. It was at that moment of despair, that God divinely intervened and asked me one simple question, “who better to encourage yourself but you through the word of God?”
The numerous set-backs and rock bottom experiences, varying adversities, my many hardships, physical abuses and pain over the years to the point of almost losing my mind and me being suicidal, is what I believe has helped to groom and prepare me for the ministry and the work of God. He has given my pain purpose and a unique voice through which He speaks to touch the untouchable and to reach the unreachable.
