  1. Haaaaa….
    “How awesome is this place ❗
    There is no other than the house of God ; this is the by way and the gate of heaven”…

  4. THis really took off in the late 90s. Almost 30s years and now it has led into rampant lawlessness. It is a free for all in this place. Nothing being enforced. Never expect it to get better.

  5. They are being replaced yearly to keep up the census of our population, unemployed and indulge in crime holistically.

  6. The LORD was with Samuel as he grew up,and the gracious hand of God was upon him and let none of his words fall on the ground.. 1 Samuel 3v19
    Luke 2v27
    When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the law required,Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying :
    “Sovereign LORD,as you have promised,
    you now dismissed your servant in peace..
    For my eyes have seen your Salvation which you have prepared in the sight of all people, a light for the revelation to St Lucia 🇱🇨 and the glory to your people of St Lucia”..

    Psalms 80v16..
    Your vine is cut down,it is burned with fire 🔥
    At your rebuke your people perish..
    Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised for yourself,then we will not turn away from you) ;revive us, and we will Call On Your Name..
    Restore us,O LORD, GOD Almighty ; make your face shine upon us that we may be Saved..

  7. Shocking….we are known as a land of high achievers and firsts ..

    Only country to be named after a female.
    The country with the most Nobel Laureates per capita.
    The only country with twin peaks so majestic.
    And now this, over 300 young Saint Lucians killed in the last decade…this is a great indictment on the nation. Something is seriously wrong with our society….and government has no clue nor a solution….

  8. Have anyone examine the root of these criminal activities? Let me call on Pancho,Mary Francis and the sociologists, what have all you done?. Day in day out not one person talking about the root of the problem which is the Marijuana, cocaine and greed. These are been hidden under a thick cover but still we want to eradicate crime. Shame
