'Never Quit, Never Give Up, My Story' by Jane Paulse
Introduction to Jane
My name is Jane Paulse and this is a small part of my story. I’m about to launch my book “Never Quit, Never give up, My story” on 27th May 2012. In this book I share my true life happenings of how I survived a hijack, assault with a deadly weapon, two rape ordeals and my battle with depression, anxiety and suicidal attempts.
God has carried me through it all and has given me a remarkable husband in 2002. With God’s help I release it in faith that this book which was inspired by the Holy Spirit will help someone and create in every Christian a desire to pray and minister to those that are hurting from similar tragedies.
At this present moment I do speaking engagements, motivational talks, counseling, preaching and teaching. I want to help others desperately and be there for those who are hurting and encouraging them to not give up on their lives because there is hope! This launch is open to the public and each person is invited to come and share this extraordinary occasion with us. We desire all to be witness of how God has transformed one person’s life in a supernatural way. God instructed both me and my husband Leandro to launch this book in two months time and we are fully persuaded that God will provide every single thing we need.
As we are launching this book without any money, we would like to ask anyone who feels in their heart the need to give assistance in any way, to do so by contacting the following people.
I SURVIDED A HIJACK, ASSUALT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON, TWO RAPE ORDELS, BUT GOD!!!
In 2002 my brother Aldo and I was travelling on the R300 late at night when the car unexpectedly cut out. Aldo realized we had problems when the petrol meter flicked on empty and I was shocked since we filled the tank earlier that afternoon.
I was 23 years old what's more 5 months pregnant at that point in time. I had no feelings whatsoever for the unborn child as it was created through a rape. No one knew that I was raped and everyone just assume I slept willingly with the guy. But I kept that secret hidden for 8 months. Earlier that evening my parents forewarned us not to go out but I lied to them and persuaded my brother to go with me. Why did I not listen to my parents? Why did I lie to them?
As Aldo was trying to push the car on his own I suddenly saw three dark figures approaching us. They offered to help push the car and I was relieved seeing that we were on this creepy dark road that time of the night. But then I looked to the back and saw them discussing something. I saw the eyes of the one man. It looked evil and vicious. Then out of the blue one of them came and tried to strike my brother from behind with a thick wooden stick. Desperately I tried to phone for help but realized that I couldn’t find airtime anywhere earlier that day. My whole being was filled with terror and I was petrified of what was happening. Suddenly I saw one man by my window and he shouted; “open the door”!!!! Filled with panic I begged him to leave me alone but he was desperate to get in. Thoughts of them killing us right there swamped my mind. This is not real, it felt like a dream and I wanted to wake up!!When he left I opened my door and started to run. I heard Aldo shouting; “leave my sister, she’s pregnant’’ But the one man came after me.
Somehow Aldo managed to get the other two men off him and he ran to get help. They threw him with bricks but he survived and his body was bruised. Aldo manage to phone the police from someone’s house and it took them forever to get to the scene. Everything inside my car was stolen that night and the police simply said they will never catch the guys who did.

My name is Jane Paulse and I am a young Christian mother of a son 11 and daughter 6 as well as wife to an astounding husband whom I love with every ounce of my body and spirit.
I grew up in a Christian home with both my parents along with two brothers where as I am the second eldest and only daughter. I love singing, furthermore it’s one of the gifts God has given me and which I relish with all my heart. Ministering in song prophetically is one gift I truly cherish.
As a teenager I did not have scores of friends but I had dreams. From time to time I would stand in front of the mirror with my pink hairbrush which I still have by the way, envision as well as pretend to be on Oprah Winfrey if not being interviewed by the press or handing out my autograph. I visualize myself standing on huge stages surrounded by millions of people. Sometimes I imagined I am encouraging people as well as preach.
At the age of fourteen or fifteen I started a group at home called the “young volunteers for Jesus”. In the role of being the leader Friday evenings became my podium of spreading the Word of God together with encouraging other young people. Many youngsters got saved and I can only give God the glory for it.
At the age of sixteen, like most young girls I dreamed of how my life would be like. I pictured a husband, kids, house along with the ideal job. I never had the desire to have a boyfriend. My focus was school alongside church. My aspiration was to reach the age of twenty one untouched and I sought to please my parents as far as possible.
At the age of twenty I found myself working at Saambou Bank for three years. It was the best three years of my life. Interacting with people was and is my passion and I loved listening to their stories as well problems. I lost my job when Saambou’s doors closed. After being at home for a month I got a job as a temp at First National Bank and became permanent after a year. I worked as a teller at the beginning and hated it much but eventually became a consultant and was in my profession for about 7yrs and I loved it! Lost my job in 2010 due to incapacity. I am currently in full-time ministry and trusting God in everything.
About 11 years ago I was sexually assaulted and a child was conceived through it. I never told anyone about what happened that night and kept it a secret. During that pregnancy I was abused mentally and emotionally.
I was about 5months pregnant when my brother and I were hijacked on the R300. We were brutally attacked by 3 men and one assaulted me while the other two viciously attacked my brother.
A month before I gave birth to my son I revealed the truth to my parents and family who supported me and stood by me. On the day that I gave birth my son’s heart stopped and I was rushed for an emergency operation.
Three days after I was discharged from hospital my car got stolen and I never got it back. I had to pay an installment every month still after that.
My son was about 3 months old when I was raped again by another man I was introduced to. I kept that a secret as well. I guess I was afraid of what would happen and what people would say.
My son was 8 months old when his father was gun downed and that was traumatic as well. I felt sad for my son and wished he could have had that one chance to have been touched and held by his own father. It sounds weird but I did forgive him.
I lost my job seeing as Saambou bank closed down. Throughout all these painful incidents I never received any counseling or talked to anyone about it. I kept it all locked up inside and suppressed most of it.
I met my amazing hubby in 2002 and he stood by me ever since then. We got married in October 2005 and he was truly God send.
In October 2009 I got nervous breakdown at work and ended up in a mental clinic where I was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and MDD (major depression disorder). I was highly suicidal and had severe anxiety attacks. I was on heavy medication.
On 28 April 2010 I had my last suicidal attempt. But God showed up! On 20Th May 2010 God spoke to me and my husband and showed us our future. From that day my life changed and God gets the glory.
In June 2010 God told me and Leandro to start giving and I remember saying;” we don’t have any money or even food to give”. God wasn’t talking about material things; He was referring to spiritual things. We became obedient and started emptying our cupboards. We began to give out of love. We started asking friends and family for old clothes, furniture, anything they didn’t need simply so we could give it to people who genuinely needed it more. The project Help me Help them stem from giving out food and clothes and we are still doing that. Leandro and I never asked or begged for money. We did not apply for an NGO number as God instructed us not to do so. Everything we did out of our own pockets and up till today we still do. We never bragged about how we helped others instead we thanked God in our hearts for using us that way. I had an intense desire to help and support people who suffered from similar tragedies as mine.
In April 2011 God gave me a dream and instructed me to start a support group. He said that through this group He would use me to change the lives of those who are in bondage and needs deliverance as well as restoration. We did not realize what God was doing at that point in time and only now began to see how His plan is unfolding. The project and group turned out to be an incredible ministry and we called it G.A.P.S. which stands for God Arranged Provision and Services and is under covering of Think Like Christ ministries and under the leadership of Bishop K F Gilliam in America. Through G.A.P.S. ministries I have ministered to people the message of deliverance and have been to a few churches doing so. At this present moment I’m doing counseling, teaching, motivational talks, sharing my testimony and preaching as well.
Our VISION is: To change lives of families, young people and individuals from different backgrounds in any way possible. To make a difference wherever we go. To show empathy to the lost and broken hearted and giving them new hope. To listen to the voice of God and to be obedient to His Word!
Our MISSION is: To accomplish God’s great commission. To treat everyone with equality, showing God’s love through our actions. This ministry strives to help others to help themselves. To live the life that Christ has in mind for them.
(Matthew 5:6) In the same way, let your light shine before others, so they may see your God works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.
(Hebrews 13:16) do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
