Bishop John Hardy & Rev. Jim Whittington Jamaica has suffered many setbacks in the last few months. Including floods, mudslides, and even a 4.5 earthquake. Now it is time to renew, not only the rebuilding of the island, but renewing and lifting the people’s spirit. Many lost loved ones in the flash flooding that came. One family in the church at Portmore, lost 6 members of their family, during the flash flooding. Now it is time for a revival and a renewal. We are going to minister to the people of Jamaica and assure them that God has not forsaken them and that it doesn’t rain always, and storms don’t last forever. Weeping may have endured for a night, but joy will come in the morning. We are looking forward to this being one of the highlights in our mission outreach that has been ongoing for more than 25 years in the island of Jamaica. Bishop Hardy said to me, “Rev. Jim Whittington, we need you now as never before.” And I am happy to heed the call and to be at my post of duty.
