A Visit to Jamaica for Heroes Day

By Bro. Nathan & Sis Antonia Giordano, Links for Jamaica

Our first visit to Jamaica in three years was all about renewal, both of relationships and our own familiarity with the island…and the tasty goat curry, ackee and salt fish, fried plantain and juicy papaya. Bro Nathan and I were joined by his brother, Dave—who along with his wife, Sis Cassie, spent two years living in Jamaica as full-time missionaries, finishing their time there just as the pandemic was getting started. continue reading

    Domestic Missionaries for Refugee Families

    By Bro. Eric Hawthorne

    The ecclesia in Avon, Indiana heard a knock on the door…and they opened it. Like several ecclesias in North America, the Avon ecclesia has recently been blessed with an influx of Christadelphian refugee brothers and sisters. Seeking a better life for their families, these brothers and sisters petitioned the UNHCR (the United Nations Refugee Agency) and were approved for resettlement. God’s hand, it appears, has directed them to the door in Avon. This has come at a time when the ecclesia’s own membership has declined due to a natural cycle of young families transferring to other ecclesias as they follow job opportunities. As Job rightly said, “The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” continue reading

    By Bro. David Andrews, Guyana & Caribbean Fieldworker

    During the month of March 2021, recently baptized Bro Trimal Accra raised with Bro David Andrews the possibility of commencing a Sunday-School at his home premises, New Market St. Georgetown, and asked for the blessing of the Georgetown Ecclesia.

    Guyana Jubilee Bible School 2022

    By Bro. David Andrews, fulltime Missionary in Guyana

    Easter week-end Friday 15-April to Mon 18-April 2022, will mark the 50th Bible School being held in Guyana. The first was held in April 1969, at the Eccles Hall under the tutorship of Bros. Norman Mills and Stuart Cowlishaw, who were both from the UK. At this time, Bro. Colishaw was a lecturer at the University at the West Indies in Trinidad. I was then just an 18 year-old from the Bartica Ecclesia up the Essequibo River, migrating to Georgetown to take up a job at the Ministry of Finance. continue reading

We met with them for four Sundays where I ran the Breaking of Bread (carrying out all duties). continue reading

    Barbados in February

    By Bro. Ben Drepaul

    Barbados, one of the paradise vacation spots for people from all over the globe, has recently announced its intention to cease being a constitutional monarchy, therefore removing the Queen as its head of state. The government is now headed by three strong women: President Sandra Mason, Prime-Minister Mia Mottley and Deputy Prime-Minister Santia Bradshaw, the granddaughter of our own Sister Ida Yearwood, who died in 2019, at the age of 93.  I remember as a kid, she was quite stern, in fact, many of the brethren dared not question her authority, for she was one of the oldest members, some 40 years after the truth first arrived there in 1892. Back in the 1980’s, on one occasion, we wanted to sing, “How Great Thou Art” at the CYC, however, she firmly maintained that if it was not in the hymn book, we could not sing it! continue reading
