Elaine Pinnock-Rose was born in Jamaica but has resided in the United Kingdom for most of her life. She became a Christian in 1989 and her encounter with Jesus took place through the ministry of Victory Outreach, London. She is so grateful and thankful to God for saving her and she acknowledges that it is because of His grace that she is still alive today. It is this grace that has taught her that there is a purpose for her life, that she belongs to Jesus and that she has an assured future with Him. She describes her encounter with Jesus as being invited round to His house and on getting there decided to stay.
