I am wishing the people of SJRE and the nation of Antigua and Barbuda a Happy 41st Independence Celebration.
Let us never take our Independence for granted because forever should be etched in our memory that we are coming out of a history of slavery and colonial domination.
This experience should have prepared us for the struggles and conquests that are necessary to build a nation. No nation is perfect but it is what we have learned from our history and our mistakes that will determine our future success.
Despite our imperfections as a nation remember it can only be made perfect by people like you and me. Therefore it is incumbent upon you and me to always ask ourselves ” ask not what our country can do for me but what can I do for my country”
Let us continue to push on towards the higher calling of service to our nation with the understanding that all our decision-making must be Jehovah Adonai centered and with that as our foundation the Bible says in Roman’s 8:28 ” all things work together for good to those who love God”
I pray Grace and Peace over SJRE and the Nation of Antigua and Barbuda
